    peebee , on those links that you provided , the fine print off to the right says you need to run at least 17inch wheels . expensive but i think they would work great and no mucking around with hydraulics .

    Yes, I saw that and laboured the point with the guy over 7 emails. The final comment was he thought I might be able to fit them inside the Nissan supplied 15" rims, however this based on me incorrectlu telling him the dia of the EFI discs were at 330mm, when they are in fact 306mm, so before moving forward I am going to pull the spare wheel off and check dimensions, including offset. If he says the rims will fit, yes its a possibility for sure as ultimately I think I will get better disc and pad life out of clamping pressures at say 1000psi instead of going the hydroboost route where you get around 2200 -2500psi. Its a coin toss right now and 6 months away. I stumbled across these by fluke. Going 17" is not a big killer except I have only just put a set of 15" KM2's in the beast. If I must go 17" then they will be rims from Huntsman that are beadlocked, so in summary, 6/4pot assy could run out at close to 10K when its all said an done with rims, tires and the kit or 1.5 - 2k for the hydroboost. I know which one the wife will want - NEITHER!!! I have already upgraded the fronts to the twin pot EFI discs, and they stop ok but nothing brilliant - car is very heavy.

    Thanks for the link Trevor, yes a spin up to Castlemaine for the day to get these swapped over is a possibility and the 1K difference is worth the drive as it will basically pay for the labour or I just buy the kit and swap them over myself.

    yes, the issue of brakes is an interesting one.
    I too have looked at these and the ones from "Rugged" as well, even talking to the dude at the 4x4 show last year (sweet memories of going to shows).
    The common issue with the brake upgrades is: where do you get the "wear items" from? Pads, caliper seals, rotors etc.
    You do get options with different pads compounds, so a lot of choice.
    Might be a problem away from the 'burbs me thinks.
    If thats not a problem, they do look good. Very tempted, however....
    Ive gone with Hydroboost and braided stainless hoses as this seems to be quite reliable if the US forums are anything to go by.
    great that there are options out there....

    I think the reline issue for replacement pads is pretty mature, so not a concern, however if I go this path I will buy a complete set of pads anyway. The challenge is the 17" wheels right now as have a near new set of 15" M/T. The system definitely needs the 17" rime, which also potentially limits my 'remote area' tyre choices i think, but then again there are thousands of 17 wheels running around the country I guess. The hydro boost may win out, but that damn chev PS pump failure is in the back of my mind and irks me - actually was doing a surf around just now for alternate options - I do have a PS pump I purchased and used with good effect that was an alternate offering/recommendation by Milemarker when I bought the hydraulic winch - ran the winch for a number of years with it and its still in great condition - slightly more flowrate capacity than the Saginaw and higher pressure also - might dig it out and have a look at that, but it needs a remote reservoir also.

    Where are you up to with yours? I am essentially done.
