Haggar what do you have to grind to clear 15" rims? The calipers? Who sells the brackets for the rear disc? What did the booster & master cyl come from? I am thinking about pulling the 35's off my Bronco and putting them on my 85 4Runner and need to redo the brakes anyway.

I had to grind the fins a little bit on the calipers. There are other applications for the master and booster. The toy stuff was all bolt in. There are tundra applications as well.
