    The first post. I forgot to mention I don't want to run spacers. My bad.

    The MC may have come from other brake upgrades and I just confused myself.......which happens :rofl:

    You want to know if 4Runner wheels will clear 4Runner brakes?

    Yes. They fit.

    Thanks. I assumed so, but the 17" Tacoma wheel needing a spacer kinda through me for a loop as I don't want to run spacers.

    How about the Sequoia/Tundra MC? Do I need to replace mine with one of those?


    I want to run the StopTech Z36 T4R rotors/calipers and keep my rear drums.

    Shit bolted onto other shit, and junk.
    No, you only get a spongy pedal when you need to push a larger amount of fluid. Larger pistons and calipers up front won’t require that. However, disc require much more fluid to actuate over drums and when you swap the rear that is where you would notice it.

    Perfect. I appreciate the response. I was hoping I would be able to keep the stock Tacoma MC :thumbsup:
    I've read so many brake upgrade threads that I got confused :rofl:

    Just completed my Gx460/5g4r front calipers conversion and I have tc gusseted spindles with 17x8.5 ‐10 wheels. I used oem lexus rotors, TRD pads, and all pro stainless steel lines from Wheelers. Install went smoothly no grinding of anything so far lol. Braking is definitely much better.

    I had my running on gusseted TC spindles (I can't recall if I noted that in the first post or not) when I had the kit on. You do have to mess with the backing plate a bit. Mind rubbed at first and just pulled it back and never had an issue. I did end up trimming it a bit when I added the Willwood Aero calipers to fit better.

    Well, it’s been a little over three years and about 30k miles since I did this upgrade, and I’m starting to have issues with my brakes…

    When the temp outside is really hot (90+) the brake pedal is starting to require A LOT more effort to stop the truck. It doesn’t sink to the floor per say, but it doesn’t engage firmly until it’s almost on the floor. The truck doesn’t creep forward when stopped but the pedal has to remain almost on the floor. When it’s colder outside I have zero issues, everything feels fine.

    I haven’t removed the wheels to check the pads but with ~30k miles I feel like they should be fine (OEM Tacoma pads). The parking brake still engages with 5-6 clicks and holds the truck firmly, even on a hill so I’m not questioning the rear brake adjustment. At this point I’m ready to blame my brake fluid or potentially, the factory Tacoma master cylinder is starting to fail.

    I don’t have any interest in upgrading the master cylinder at this point so if things don’t improve with the pedal, after I check the pads and do a brake fluid flush, I’m likely going to end up replacing it with another OEM Tacoma unit. I’ve already crawled under the truck to inspect for brake fluid leaks and didn’t find anything. The only thing I noticed was that the fluid is dark brown now versus clear. Unless I’m missing something or there could be another reason the pedal all the sudden has to go to the floor when the temps get high…

    Try a fluid flush. Relatively inexpensive, relatively quick and a whole lot safer for you and any passengers.
