Hi Guys,
I would like to know if this can be done by only swapping out the single piston calipers for the dual piston calipers on the later models.
If just swapping is not an option, what else would i need to do? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

The dual piston calipers were installed in model year 2002 and newer Rodeo/Rodeo Sport.
To install a dual piston caliper on a 2001 Rodeo/Rodeo Sport you have to replace the :
Steering Knuckle
Caliper Bracket
Brake Rotor
Brake Pads
Backing Plate
Wheel Hub
CV drive axles (if 4WD)

The image shows a 02 wheel hub, 4WD axle nut and backing plate.
Note that the brake rotor just slips onto the studs and retained by the rim. Easy to replace.

Thanks buster, its what I thought.
Mine is a 4x4, will I not maybe be able to use the axles I have at the moment.

Back story quickly , I have a LS1 in my Isuzu, it is(was) a KB 320 v6 4x4 pick up, still the same but with a V8 in it. I used the spindles and rear brakes off a Rodeo diffs from the states. Cannot say what year they were but I know it not the newer bigger dual piston type.
Now my next question is, does anyone know of a trustworthy breaker yard that will be able to help me and ship to South Africa?
