Anyone have any information on upgrading the 5th Gen brakes to Dual Pot Calipers off a similar year Avalon or LS400?

I know I can bolt these onto a Camry, including the rotors easily. I was wondering if I could do the same with the calipers on a Celica and source a larger rotor. I'll test it out at the yard tomorrow, just curious if anyone has info or experience in this upgrade.

What exactly bolts on for the Camry conversion? Also, what size rotors? If it's 255 or 277 then very possibly you just bolt on the bracket and caliper.

The bracket bolts to the Camry hub from the Avalon/LS400 dual pot calipers. Rotors swap easy because they share the same bolt pattern.

However, the bolt pattern is different between all of the above and the Celica. I imagine I would need a custom bracket, so I'm either looking for a source on that, or a bracket off another platform that makes the conversion work.

Have you thought about the duel piston all trac calipers? It would be a direct bolt on IIRC, and same bolt pattern.

Sourcing the AT brakes would be more difficult then sourcing the LS400/Avalon brakes money wise.

The part number i gave to O'Reilly auto parts was 19-1244 and they found the calipers w/o problems. I dont remember the price but i do remember them being on the inexpensive side :)

Reman may be the way to go...

The auto parts store also found the mounting bracket for me as well bc of the part number. Not sure if there is a difference between the 4th gen all trac brackets and the non all trac brackets.

Can you find the part number on those brackets?
