BRAKE WEAK

Toyota Landcruiser

We have a Toyota land cruiser 6 cylinder petrol engine vehicle. The vehicle is armoured and used for security purpose. The problem is in the brake is not effective. Pedal seems to be good but vehicle will take long distance to stop. In other way brake is not effective.

We replaced brake servo master cylinder, wheel cylinder, front brake pads and rear brake shoes. Brake disc and rear brake drums. Still the vehicle is taking long distance to stop.

This vehicle don't have ABS. Iam tired replacing all the parts even the mechanic is also confused.

If you any idea please advice. Your idea is really helpfull for us.

For every 500 pounds you increase the vehicle weight you decrease the brake effectiveness by 15%. You do the math.

INSURE you use toyota brake pads or a heavy duty pads.

Has the mechanic checked brake pressure? While bleeding the fluid should really squirt. You could have a low flow proportioning valve or a brake line that is either smashed or stopped up.

Tell your mechanic that anything made by man can be fixed by man. TTFN
