First of all, my friend is having a set on his Vert, and the guy who set up this kit is my buddy.

Why we making this is the CELICA ST205 Calipers are too expensive and rare to find.

So we made something and seems worked.

I am not a technical guys at all, so couldn't provide any spec.

My buddy didn't mention any spec to me at all, he just let me see, touch and smell it.

4pot Caliper from a LS400
Stocked 315mm rotors from LS400 too, redrilled 5 x100 holes
Some modification on the Caliper
And a customized Caliper Bracket that allowed to fit the 315mm Rotors(Same size as ST205)
Paint
Stickers

Just let the Pics speak for itself

Damn nice Vincent ['s friend]. Is that what my LS's brakes look like? Hmmmm - Ping doesn't really need anything more than GT brakes does she? laugh.gif
A whole lot of stock brake swapping going on around here - keep it up.

V_D what did you do with the caliper bracket issue?? OEM Ucf10 BBK found this locally, $200 isnt that bad biggrin.gif im thinking about it if i can get past the caliper and caliper bracket issue.

The guy who posted that thread on the hawaii forums obivously doesnt know jack because he included celicas in with sc's and na supras. I guess he seen my other post in some other guys thread about LS brakes and calipers rolleyes.gif

some one must have the CAD drawings for the calliper bracket floating around some where. Why don't more people want an alternative to the gt4 4 pot calliper?

people shouldn't bother with this, the ST205 brake system is a " bolt on " for the most part, as long as you have the proper wheels to clear the calipers ( which you'll need with this lexus system as well ) you will have no issues using stock ST205 disc / calipers.

parts for both calipers ( rebuilt parts / rebuilt kits ) are exactly the same, and options are good I agree, but let's look at options that are equal or easier to install, not the oposite.

4runner 4 piston calipers are the same as ST205 and I think they have the same mounting bracket so no custom bracket needed. same thing for supra 4 piston calipers. along with some other trucks / suvs. it's also fair to say that LExus LS did not come with 4 piston caliper standard as they did in Japan until the last few years so cost of the calipers in US is just as high as ST205 ones, and LS calipers need the same exact modification needed to fit ST205 but also require a custom bracket.
this is like adding a engine start buttom that still requires to put the key and turn. is just adding oen extra step to a proven and working process.

96 and up, there are 2 version of the calipers, one made for 16 inches wheels and the other for 17 inches wheel, so the last ones accommodate bigger disc.

I was reading up on a website that the gt-four calipers on both the front and rear brakes are constructed of aluminum. is this true?

how about the ls400 brakes are they made of iron? Would using ls400 brakes on a superstrut setup be more accessible with less modifications over the macphearson suspension???

how about calipers for the rear, is there any other options beside gt-four rear calipers
