Disc Brake upgrade
« on: October 10, 2019, 05:23:27 PM »

OK - So I have a Tintop and probably an SJ410. Year not known. However it has a 1.3L,  carbureted , disc brakes in the front and drum in the rear. Transfer case has a drum brake. I believe it has SJ413 differentials in an SJ410 housing. I want to upgrade to Vitara front discs and move the SJ410 discs to the rear. Will the Vitara calipers work on this mod?? Do I need to change Master Cylinder?? Do I need a proportioning valve??

Thanks   bowdown

I think to upgrade the front brakes, you just use calipers and rotors from a four door Vitara/Sidekick. The current fronts you have can then be used in the rear. Then you will need at a minimum new proportioning valve.

So how does the parking brake work if the fronts go to the back?

BG - Actually I have the best of both worlds. The SJ410 had a drum emergency brake mounted on the rear of the transfer case. If you have a sammy or SJ413 and wish to do disc brakes all around then you have to get an aftermarket kit that fits on the rear of the transfer case. I have also heard of the boys down under (Aussies) that use a rear disc brake setup from some other vehicle. But the straightforward no hassle approach is to use the aftermarket disc brake setup.

Or you can get lucky and find an SJ410 parking brake and put it in your Sami.
