hey guys, i was in the process of changing my pads, when i got home after leaving toyota wth my new stock brake pads, and went to install them and shit they dont fit...i have a 90 gt4 A st185, i did some research and i found that they may use the pads from a st165, has anyone had this probleme or has anyone heard of this before?? i tried every parts place around here and everytime i try and put them on they dont fit, and the pads are starting to squeal, so i really need this done soon, i brought the pads to a shop the get them matched, and the closest ones they found was from a 90 sub legacy, but even then they didn't fit, andi noticed the pads i have are larger then the ones from a st185, which is a big reason why i dont want to put in the stock calipers from a st185,
if it can be any help, my calipers have to pistons versus the one piston caliper from the st185....i'm stomped and dont know what to do,

thx guys....

GT4 Group A from Japan part numbers: http://www.toyodiy.com/parts/g_J_1990_TOYOTA_CELICA_ST185H-BLMVZ.19.html comes up with 04491‑20700 for your front pad kit. Try doing a Google search using the part number, but check the dimensions on your brake pads to confirm. The 04491‑20700 shows Width: 128 mm, Height: 53 mm, Thickness: 16.2 mm.
