    It has been covered on ih8mud but as above, isnit really worth it? I went down the Hilux calipers route with standard drums and it’s fine, just make sure everything is serviceable

    Cheers for your thoughts guys I do like the thought of discs all round.

    I stripped the swivel hubs today and the surface is heavily pitted. To my knowledge it didn't leak before but I'm a bit concerned that there a bit to worn ?

    In mine we used chemical metal stuff then sanded smooth and then painted.
    Just gone past 12 months and they still look really good

    If they are leaking make sure it’s not oil getting past the inner axle seal from the diff. I was told my hubs were leaking because of pitting but it was actually oil from the diff as this seal had failed. I had it replaced with a special sea kit from terrain tamer last month, a thousand miles later all is dry

    Cheers Ben actually starting to feel like I've put a dent in the work know, a mate of mine popped round on the weekend and gave me a hand. He stripped the interior out whilst I did a bit of painting on yet more chassis parts... got to appreciate it when your mates don't mind giving up a Sunday to offer a hand, just got to convert him from defenders to a Toyota ha ha
