Any upgrade with JDM front brakes compared to US (ST185)

Postby OutToWinPAHC » Wed Oct 24, 2012 9:32 pm

Buddy of mine has a JDM GT-4 or 3 in his warehouse for part out, offered me a good bit of parts for a decent price, but are the brakes the same or is there any upgrade?

to my knowledge the only "strange" or "jdm" 185 brakes are literally 165 brakes. which suck. i think they only came on the late 89 - early 90. jdm only of course. other than that they are no different.

^ I think they used them on the lightweight "Rally" and "budget" GTFours as well, which I think were only sold at the start of production.

I wasn't sure but he offered both knuckles, hubs, brakes, ABS sensors, ABC plastic cover and other small parts for 300 bucks.... which to me is a steal seeing how much those abs sensors are new
