U're Right

That kit said that it was only for Tacomas up to '04s.
Surely there must be kits out there for all those Tacos after '04 !
Guys ?

Honestly I see no reason why you would want to go with disks.

PM the moderator MJP2, he converted his rear drums to discs and had nothing good to say about the results.

And not to mention...It's a lot more than just a 'kit'. To do it right, you should change the master cylinder, proportioning valve....and go knows what else.

I did a disc brake swap on my Jeep (D44 Wagoneer axle). The master cylinders and proportioning valves are completely different for drum brakes and disc brakes.
