Super easy, I can't tell much of a difference, but the V6 IFS calipers are still available from Toyota, and I would expect those to remain in production for quite some time at reasonable rates. Works so well that I just trim the backing plates any time I have them off, because whenever I rebuild a front axle I try to make the swap, and even if I don't, I will soon enough. Dan
Are these calipers from a V6 IFS 4Runner? What year do you buy when you do this mod?
