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

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?
