Default SC400/SC300 E-brake shoes

Any SC brake gurus please chime in, is the ebrake assembly/brake shoes the same on SC400s/SC300s?

Mine is a 93 300, planning on putting the SC400 rear rotors and calipers, but I was concerned with the ebrake.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm assuming theyre the same shoes/assembly and you simply adjust it to fit/squeeze the SC400 rotor?

I've also noticed not much is spoken of this when people put Supra TT rears, I assume those are the same as well.

Any input is greatly appreciated

I'd try asking the dealership, they would know if the part number is the same for both sc3 and 4. personally I'd assume they would not change since it's a drum style e-brake it's just the outer diameter that is larger between 300/400 and supra but don't know for sure

Thanks rcchris7, I never thought of that at all. That would explain why the sc400 rotor/caliper is better, same drum diameter, larger rotor diameter, meaning larger break surface for the pads...hmmm...
