95-00 LS400 Front caliper conversion...

My new project... LS400 Calipers. Direct Bolt on, bigger oem rotor, and 4piston pod caliper compared to the GS's stock 2 piston. Also they are aluminum, so though much bigger, they are LIGHTER, unspring weight FTW!




So whats the diff? My GS has stock 2 pod/piston front calipers. they are great, but they can always be better! These are DIRECT BOLT ON!




But what about the SupraTT brakes i wanted? Here's the deal. Supra TT uses 12.74in rotors. This LS400 caliper uses 12.4in rotors. However, the calipers are almost identical. how are they different? For one, the ls400 are more rare, and also they are ALUMINUM! so yes, physically in weight, these are lighter than my stock GS ones, yet they are freakin HUGE!, ok not huge huge, but this means i can keep on using my winter 17x8 wheels n tires!


Great shape too, but will need to get new hardware for them, rotors, and pads. All in due time!


ill post up once i get all the hardware in and do the install. its direct bolt on so shouldnt be toooo toooo hard.

i have front RCA's so i wont need to modify my tie end rod to make these work!
