exactly what nerok just saidthe 160s have the handbrake on the transfer case.
when upgrading calipers, make sure the pads are bigger, thats where your going to get the most gains (surface area). often bigger calipers have bigger pads which in turn may require bigger discs, all in the aim of getting more surface area for the braking process to occur.
The only difference in bolt pattern is the drive flange from the front axle the rear are the same.no, because the GQ are coil. and the diff pumpkins are in the centre on GQ whereas 160 is offset. and the driveshafts have different bolt centres on the flanges. and GQ are usually higher ratio (ie 4.1) than the MQ common 4.6
there is a thread on here about the conversion, but ive lost my link.
ah okay, i tried putting a front GQ shaft into my MQ and just presumed it was a common difference. good to know.The only difference in bolt pattern is the drive flange from the front axle the rear are the same.
yer i figured as much, i was replying to oldblinddog who was suggesting it was a problem for him and his 260, but its not for us with 160@neRok: 260's have no drum attached to the transfer, they have the parking brake in the rear drums.
