    Found genuine pads stop way better than Bendix in the GQ could give them a try or wait they wear out a bit. .

    Going to do brake upgrade too soon on GUte as brakes are petty dam terrible, ordered braided lines will start with that but will go TB48 callipers rotors and master cylinder down the track I think. . At least will be able to tell difference instead of doing everything at once which I did with GQ. .

    Hydralic booster looks like a very good upgrade too and have only heard good things from those who have done it. .

    Yeah braided all around. Don't know what difference this makes but they came with the kit so i got them fitted.

    4.8 front brake kit was my original intention. But scoring a set is like finding a unicorn with golden teeth. And fronts were getting pretty bad on the car plus ive had a few trips lined up so i had to get everything done quick with what i could grab now. One or both of my front rotors were warped from crooked river barrage of crossings few years ago, so i've procrastinated on it long enough.

    The combo of factory pads and braided lines got me thru the 44 emerg stop test for the GVM upgrade I reckon, great combo. I am running the TB48 booster and master with the Willwood brakes and find the braking better, not hyper dramatic, but no fade now at all and they pull up with a great pedal feel.

    Fitted Superior Eng Hyperflex sway bars front and rear today. Rears were a bit of drama, got 'Brunswicked again' with the location of the muffler support bracket being welded over the mount plate, but Mt Grinder sorted that out. The rears are also requiring of a 3 handed person to get the mount plate installed, takes about 30 mins a side to get the alignment inside the chassis rails, however once achieved the setup is rock solid. Massive difference in the diameter of the bars also, up from 16mm to 24mm. Fronts are straight forward. Be warned the instructions are necessary for the front/rear and they are a website download, which isn't clear when you buy them the instructions though are fine.

    If it is only to support the part for alignment and if reachable from bellow, maybe you can use a bottle jack as the third hand.

    Rossco, I would cost up the TB48 calipers, rotors and master cylinder against the hydraulic brake booster from Mark's 4WD. Personally (and this is the way I decided to approach it) I would do the hydraulic booster first, then add calipers and rotors.
    The TB48 calipers will work well with the hydraulic booster if you decided to upgrade them later, but I gotta say you will be more than impressed with the difference just the hydraulic booster has on the braking response!

    Yeah definatly not a bad way to go. . Looking online looks like Mark's kit is listed as 1400 to 1800 mark, got a price from patrolapart for calipers, rotors, master cylinder and genuine pads for just under 2K all new which doesn't sound too bad really. . . Anyways start with lines then flip a coin maybe . . .

    Have to agree.. I did the DBA slotted rotors with ECB Yellowstuff pads and all braided lines as well. Was better but still not really reassuring enough. I did the hydro boost mod and it made a really significant difference. I should have tried the hydro boost first like Ash did.

    It should be $1,250 for the TD42 or $1,685 if you want braided lines with it.
    I put the braided lines in with the hydraulic booster.
    If you do go for the calipers, rotors, master cylinder and pads from patrolapart, I would be very interested to do a comparison
