I'd like to see the setup mate, My plans are to put a 1uz in my corolla so I imagine I'll be needing uprated brakes at some point!

Pretty sure brakes international do exchange brakes for the corolla. I know they do rears as I bought some a few years back.

I have RX7 fronts fitted with BMW Mini vented discs. I'm running the standard master cylinder and have good brake balance with the rest standard.

If anyone wants to see pics, let me know.

Success! On multiple fronts, it turns out the rear drivers side caliper piston had got dislodged, stopping the brake and handbrake from working, so thats sorted, also I've found a UK based website that sells caliper parts, for anyone interested it is:*(83-87)+AE86+1.6GT+COUPE+(RWD+16V)

I don't suppose anyone has a list of parts numbers / a parts catalogue they could post up here? I'm stripping the brakes down on the weekend, hopefully it'll just be a couple of parts causing all the issues and it'll make for a cheap fix!

I'd get a price from Toyota, you never know.

I didn't think toyota would sell a rebuild kit as such, but who knows, could be worth a look. ebay only gave me individual calipers at £130 each :shock:

I've started looking in to doing an FD brake conversion, so far it's working out cheaper to upgrade to the twin pots!

toyota themselves? ebay occasionally shows up with some rebuild kits?

Okay, so after a quick look online the only replacement calipers I can find are selling for £130 each, which is a bit steep for me at the moment! Does anyone here know of a rebuild kit for caliper internals?

Yeah that's what I'm leaning towards now, I know fensport do refurbs if you send your old calipers in, but that isn't an option for me as this is my only car!
