    Does anyone know if these (brackets) are still floating around? If so, I'd very much like to purchase a set. If not, is there a possibility to get another batch made?

    Nope, he made his last batch a couple months ago. He was selling these brackets in batches at the asking price of $500. I tried contacting him numerous times just trying to get a set. He seemed to have no interest in selling them one set at a time.

    When I get back to working on my 90 I'll just make my own brackets from scratch.

    Thanks for the response.

    Going back through the last page there is a total of four members, you and I included, that inquired about a set. If we all spent $125 a piece that would cover the $500. I don't see a problem getting this going if everyone's on board and ready to pay.

    @TRUCK ACTION when you did the front brakes did you have to use any washers? and how long. I bought these brackets and had to use alot of spacers to fit right. I just dont fee comfortable with that many.

    If I remember correctly I did have to get longer bolts & only used one lock & one flat washer per bolt & use only grade 8 bolts!!
    Only thing that I had to do somewhat different is trim a portion of the 4-Runner caliper where it was hitting the spindle which is a Belltech 2'' dropped unit!!

    Nissan 300z calipers bolt on without adapters. Use 1994 Mazda MPV front rotors, 94 Landcruiser pads and alittle machining of the toyota hub. Details are in my build thread.
