It looks like the bearing assembly gets pressed into the backing plate so it wouldn't be an easy swap.

Sorry!

I did get to try this out before I headed off on holiday, just not the time to reply. I redid my OEM parking brake as I was using the Autotrain for my travels and wanted them functional.

The Scion caliper is no-go. Simply way too small to accommodate the 4Runner between the rear mounts and rotor size.

My original idea of mounting a bracket to these studs in red should work. We can probably do all 4 studs though with a CNC'd bracket that looks like the one below. The only problem is the studs need replaced with longer ones, and to replace the studs the backing plates/hubs need pressed off the shaft. Good thing I have a complete axle assembly sitting in my garage to pull parts and measure from. I just ordered the Wilwood mechanical caliper.

I had the same issue with my v8 Explorer, even with new parts it couldn’t hold under throttle, but would actually work as intended for incline parking.

fellow M******* - and im glad my dad always told me to make sure the ebrake works when buying a used vehicle. not for using them, but for passing inspection/not having a surprise repair.

Questions:

Is anybody interested in a group buy for these dual caliper brackets, to install you would need to have the backing plate pressed off the axle shafts to install a set of longer studs that I would supply. Also you would need to cut the factory dust/rock shield around the caliper.

Wilwood mechanical calipers ($200)
Extended studs ($20)
Have a shop press out the backing plates ($40)
Modified parking brake cables or new Wilwood cables ($0 or $100?)
My CNC'd brackets ($?)


So maybe $450 to rip out the OE parking brake system for good?

Just wondering if you looked into a line lock kit?

Yes but it won't help in case of brake line failure. They would work as purely a parking brake however.

I like the simplicity and redundancy of a separate mechanical system that can replace the drums.
