Hi guys,

I need to get my calipers rebuilt front and back.

I'm having a hard time tracking down rebuild kits.
Does anyone know where to get them for a later model turbo.

Cheers!!

I bought a kit off of eBay (possibly BiggRed) and rebuilt some Rev2+ calipers for my Rev1 N/A. Not particularly hard to do (my first brake rebuild) and looked mint after cleaning up and respraying silver. Transformed the braking of my car too. I wouldn't want to tackle the rears though and luckily because the rears had already been upgraded, never will!

That is until the hand brake mechanism gets seized up..... Fairly common failure point.
Not that terrible a job to do if you have the special nut tool from Toyota or an old rear piston you can cut open to get the nut out of!

Prices are on his site. It was about 125 each but then you get 25 back when you return your old one.

From his contact number is also on his site.

Tcb parts are also worth a call, they didn't have any in stock last time I tried. Both work on the basis of sending calipers to be rebuilt once they get old ones back.

Both are quick dispatch and delivery.
