I'm pretty sure the custom THINGY is the bracket for the caliper mount.

this adapter will not only allow the LS400 caliper to fit the GS but also will lower your car by about .5 inch and fix camber..If you want more info just drop me a PM..

Default I think supra brake are still better..

this is just my opinion... but I think supra brake are still better....

Supra brake are 6 pistons and the LS is 4 piston... that really changes thing and also I believe the rotors are bigger...

I think if you are going through the trouble of changing brakes you might as well go for the supra TT brakes...


I give you props for trying something different...tho...
