MA70 brake swap questions

Postby yhatzee89 » Mon Mar 24, 2014 5:43 pm

I've been researching alot of alternative caliper options for my 1JZ-GTE swapped MA70 Supra, and on one forum from about 10 years ago I found where someone mentioned that Celica All-Trac calipers bolted straight on the MA70 hubs. I was just wondering if anybody on this forum had any dealings with this type of setup. I've seen alot of mentioning of Supra brakes due to the almost 12" rotors, but our single piston calipers suck. So far the only factory "upgrade" is that calipers off of the privea minivan fit, but they are the same size with 2 pistons and only a minor increase in stopping power. If you guys have any insight I would really appreciate it.

Thanks

i would look into lexus calipers as they have a wide variety of 4 piston calipers availabe. this can also branch into toyota trucks and suv! i kno the tacomas, 4runners, tundras all seem to use the same caliper. this might be the upgrade you want instead of alltrac brakes.

The problem with the Lexus calipers is they are not a direct bolt on affair, they usually require a bracket or modded knuckles. Why would you recommend against using all-trac calipers?
