Default UCF20/21 front brake caliper into UCF10/11?? (The Mother thread)

What part do i need to put the 95+ 4 piston caliper into the 91?
spindle, rotor, caliper and bigger wheels? Anything need to customize?
I have search on it but only found info the Supra TT conversion only.
For the Supra conversion, is it just direct bolt on to the original spindle or need to have adapter to complete the installation?

same install as TT, all bolts right in aside from having to cut/bend the dust shield which you'd have to do with either setup.

Is someone said the spindle or hub was different between the 90-94 and 95+. So do i need to get the spindle or hub?

Listen to the wise one (PD), he has been here way too long and knows all...

but if you're looking for the 2LS caliper kit, ALIGA (that's his screen name) has used ones for sale. The pads rotors and stainless steels lines are separate of course.

I'm saving up $$$ rite now, but I'm doing the electric fans conversion first...

I tried to put it on today and the caliper was hitting the tie rod or the steering knuckle. Do i need to get the 95+ steering knuckle/spindle or i need to modify something?

The LS calipers are longer than the Supra units , that is they go around a bit more , you will need to get the later [ 95 to 00 ] bottom ball joint arm that bolts to the bottom of the strut and takes the steering ball joint , even here in Aus they are only bout $85.00 so over there they should not cost much .
the pic shows what I'm talking about , the earlier arm has a step in it and the newer arm does not .
