Any of you lot seen the unit that runs off ya power steering system? Gets rid of the booster altogether! Marjs adapters or someone like that does them.

I've got a 4 bolt 80ser one might try and see if the holes line up with the firewall if so I'll try and find a 2 bolt and check if the brake master fits. If it does work I'm not sure what to do about the vacuum switch that hilux booster has and the 80 doesnt?


When I get a chance i'll look at some side by side at the 4x4 wreckers

Any news as to whether any members have taken the leap?

2008 4x2 Vigo

Postby sanrook on Tue, 27 Mar 2018 9:26 +0000

Are the Vigos same as Hiluxes? I am asking about 2007 4x2 Vigo in particular. They seem to come with a 5 hole rotor and a smaller center bore. What kind of calipers do these have?

Also called Hilux SR5 I think. These also have 5 hole wheels like in the clip below.

Do these have a different caliper compared to the ones being discussed here?

Same deal as the 120 brakes just a bit more expensive for the rotors, the only difference is the thickness of the disc and the caliper is larger than the 120
17' wheels are needed

I bought a modified PBR (Aussie made!) VT-VY era booster today that is a straight bolt in, just pushes the master cylinder about 20mm forward. It suits both diesel and petrol 2005-2011, would probably suit 2012-2015 as well. It has the fitting for the diesel's switch or a plug in it for the petrol engine. Will fit it in the next few weeks. The brake place I got it from fitted one to a diesel KUN26 last week and said it transformed the vehicle on standard brakes.

Doesn't look too hard to fit at all, will probably just have to unbolt the ABS module and move it forward a bit with the master cylinder to get the old booster out and new one in. Might also have to temporarily move the intercooler fluid reservoir but that is just two bolts. I reckon it should take maybe an hour and a half tops.

You only need to change the booster if you put the Prado disc brake rear end in. Vacuum etc is perfect with the bigger rotors. I’ve been running the setup for 10000ish Kms now with no problem and awesome braking

I’ve had the TRD (120 Series ‘cruiser) front brakes on my 2011 for about 50,000km and it definitely needs a bigger booster. The brakes work well but too much pedal effort is required especially if stopping in a hurry.

Interesting... where did you get the booster from?

Not sure who makes them - they are machined on the pushrod to be the same as a Hilux and the nose is changed to suit the Hilux master, plus the sensor fitting added for diesel application. But I bought it from Stopmaster Brakes in Gateshead. Stopmaster thought they were 80 Series but when the box was opened we realised it was Holden, which is better as it is more boost and Aussie made so rebuild parts will be easier to get locally.
