Doen jouself n guns. Kry vir jou 75 Land Cruiser ventilated dics met KZ-TE calipers. Dit is n straight forward bolt on. En n groot verbetering teenoor die standard dics en calipers

Or try the Powerbrakes conversion. This made a HUGE difference to Bulldog's braking performance and is highly recommended.

Hi Guys.

The Legend - The conversion you speak of, is it a dual piston calliper? It seems to look like it is.

Family Dog - If the conversion which the Legend speaks of is a dual piston calliper with vented discs. What would the differences or advantages of the
Powerbrakes conversion be?

Thanks in advance.

Yes it is a dual piston caliper.The standard SFA caliper is also a dual caliper (1 small and 1 big caliper) but the KZTE calipers has 2 big calipers which makes the difference.

Having no experience of the dual piston kit I cannot answer this but I can most definitely speak well of the Powerbrake kit - it really makes a difference! It also saved a dog's life once when he came running out from the veld into the road. The Hilux stopped quickly and in a straight line.
