Do you replace the front and the rear calipers or are the calipers for the rear on the LS and the SC the same thing?

Do supra rear brakes if you want all around better braking.

Alpine Andy...dont bother with rears and i dont think they fit. I did my last one just front and it drops down so low in the front and stopped literally on a dime anything under 35.

I'd like to know where you got those Lexus decals for the calipers as well. I searched your threads but didn't find anything on it. Thanks.

Quick question, what's the difference with the SC400 calipers and the LS400 calipers? Aren't they both 4 pot? is it just a bigger diameter rotor?

Thought you were saying over the LS4. 9" seriously??!! That's ridiculously pitiful! When I bought my SC4 and drove it home I was petrified. I thought I was going to rear end somebody because I had never driven a car with such weak brakes. I can't imagine how much worse the SC3 is with 10.x" fronts and 9" rears.
