Question Supra TT Brakes

Where should I purchase a Supra TT brake upgrade kit for my '95 SC400 and how much should I expect to pay? The Black Beaury is coming out of the paint shop soon and I've got a set of polished HRE 542Rs that will be waiting when it does. Exhaust is after brakes.

Thanks in advance for the help!

If you want it new, contact Steve Ganz @ Carson Toyota.
If you are okay with used, check For Sale section on SupraForums.com.

Here's a idea on the prices on the brakes. I paid 400 for the front and rear calipers 200 for the brembo rotors slotted/drilled. 90 for the trd lines and 100 for installation. I've seen the brembo rotors ranging from 380-600. The front calipers alone new run around 400. The rears cost around the same if not a bit more if i remember correctly. The trd lines run around 100-110 from online stores. Now would also be a good time to look for some caliper paint too. G luck with your brakes.

Default Rears too?

You put Supra calipers on the rear as well? Were there any problems? My understanding is that most people only do the front and leave the rears stock.

I like the idea of Supra brakes all the way around.

There shouldn't be any problems with the rears as long as u don't get 15 inch rims on. I am not sure if the rears clear the stock rear rims. When i bought the car they came with aftermarket 17s. G luck. TT calipers all around are of course going to be better... It just cost more..
