Hi there....

I have a st185 celica and i want to do the st205 brake swap front and rear.

I know the rear is pretty straight forward but the front have me thinking of what to do....

I know it is doable by milling down the rotor to 300mm from the original 315mm but i want to retain the stock size because in the future changing rotors would be less of a hassle.

I have seen some custom brackets being made to bolt on the calipers to the hub but no info on who/where have them for sale.

Can somebody please point me in a direction where i mght be able to obtain these. Much thanks

Why not just buy drilled and slotted rotors for what you have now? thats what I did and painted the calipers red. It will look sharp.

I think you can swap out the caliper mounting brackets.

Good luck finding them though. A friend threw my rear ones out when we went to autozone. luckily I found a set on ebay.
