I bought LS4 4pot calipers a few months after purchasing my GS3 and it has been on the back burner since building my race car. I finally decided to get the needed RCA's only to find out Mike had a new version. Mike assured me they were just as good as the originals just at a better cost, so with all concerns put to ease. I made the purchase!!!
What I received was well packaged.
The installation was straight forward. Jack the car up, remove front wheels and remove the stock 17mm bolts that hold the LBJ to the bottom of the spindle. I am running after market LBJ's so this may have been the reason but I had to remove the powder coating on the insert where the sleeve of the LBJ slides together with the spacer. It was very simple. Dremel with a small wire brush removed the powder coat and gave the needed clearance. Now I just need to buy some rotors and pads, then install.

Think you meant Mike from Figs GREAT stuff from him so rest assured ! Car looks good
Waiting on the new 2GS '01 + caster arm bushing (non-sperical) as well so these could go on together in conjuction with my BBK. ETA is like 2 weeks for caster bushing. Bolts were back ordered for the RCA's anyway so it works out for me.

Looks nice, what lowering springs are on you? Wheels go well with the car too.
Thanks! I have Tanabe NF210's on for now. I have been thinking of getting some coilovers soon. The wheels are actually the stock 17's off my old G35 couple that I sold long ago. I had them laying around so I polished the face of the spokes and threw them on and couldn't be more pleased with them. They are in desperate need of a good polishing!

It has made a world of difference updating the front end. I still have the UCA's left to do but they are still in good shape for now.
850lexus, when turning the wheel while on the ground, do you hear any clunking from the RCAs? I have the exact same RCAS and no matter how tight I torque the bolts, the clunking won't go away. All other components on the car are either fine or brand new, so I already know it is the RCAs.
