is this for a solid axle?
I believe the combo is fj40 rotors and ifs calipers (v6 or 4cyl)
or you can swap on the IFS wheel hubs with fj40 rotors & ifs calipers. but you need to drill out the proper bolt pattern on the rotors and tap the capiler so you can mount them backwards

think i used 1980 fj80 rotors and calipers. no mods required.
i believe the v6 calipers have slightly larger pistons(ive been told), but require a different rotor or some mod.
get it fixed for feild of dreams on the 12th!!!
