Really, is it straight forward?Yes all been done before.
Should turn up if you search.
Relatively common conversion and straight forward.
That thread has been dead since 2011 and I seem to recall some issues with the kit or the suppliers....Really, is it straight forward?
I thought you have to change the whole lot: swivel hub, stub axle, hubs, discs, calipers etc. As I did not think the calipers for the 4.8 bolt to the same as 3L bolt pattern on the hub. But that could have been misinformation as the wreckers wanted to sell me the complete set.
I looked at doing it but had to buy a complete 4.8 front diff with brakes to get all the parts to do it and the wreckers here in WA want stupid money for them.
I ended up using the 4.8 softer pads in the 3L calipers as they are exactly the same shape to fit the same and used slotted discs to fit the 3L size rotor. Recond my calipers and it is a huge improvement.
Or you could try this kit
I did, but mine's a Series 1.you don't need the master cylinder.....
Same here, don't pressure wash the brakes, well not the calipers anyway.Yeah my rear ones seem to get bent in a bit and I hear them rub. I don't pressure wash brakes or patrol anymore. I found it was doing more damage then good as blasted dirt into all seals etc.
