    Ran into a problem upgrading my 2001 Toyota Tacoma dbl cab to the 231 mm Tundra Brakes. The Tacoma uses a banjo fitting, which as I read through the many write-ups didn't see any mention of. In fact one writeup on t4r.org showed the 231mm install with the banjo fitting.

    In either case, I am kinda stuck on what to do and wanted to see what others have done. Don't want to have to put back together and double work, so without a vehicle till I figure this out.

    This is the old caliper


    This is the bolt for the banjo fitting;


    This the the new caliper, which generally uses a hardline fitting;


    Any suggestions?

    from some of the write-ups i've read:

    Modifications required:
    -Bending the dust cover / disk shield.
    -Drilling out the end of the banjo bolt approx 1/8”-1/4” deep.
