The Brakes on your Supra in proper working order quite well. However you start making your car faster and dive into the harder the brakes start to their weakness usually in brake fade due to an overheated While it is possible to buy a big brake kit for the MK2 the cost can be well over The good news is that is a more affordable solution may get the job done for you. The stock upgrade that I detailed in my article will work on a lightly modified vehicle just simple bolt-ons. simple upgrade is the next of braking improvement. Please This upgrade will at least 15 Wheels for proper

If you have not previously installed a steel brake line kit now is the to do it. Techna Fit and Goodridge sell DOT brake like kits for the Supra. I reccomend shopping at Performance, they specailze in MK2 and will get you the right parts. pick up a stainless steel line while you are at it, it is a very part that will the speed and accuracy of the clutch and disengagement.

The first to this brake upgrade a trip to the junkyard, you will the front calipers with and hubs from an 1987 or Toyota Cressida Sedan, the models have smaller so avoid those. The calipers and must come off of an 87 or 88 however the may come off any 85-88. The caliper diameter is the same as the Supra so is no need to change out your valve or master cylinder. At the near me these parts are $10 so it will be $40 for 2 hubs and 2 calipers, junkyards have special days that may allow you to get even cheaper. You will to remove the rotors from the at the junkyard otherwise you are likely to be for them, I recommend bringing a hammer and wrench to break these bolts. Be sure to all of the hardware as you are taking the parts they are all the same size as is on your car but its always nice to spares. Here are a few pictures of the and calipers cleaned up and painted. parts were painted high temp paints, be installing painted parts, fluid will turn the to mush the instant it comes contact.

The Cressida uses the same bearings and seals so you have a of reusing the ones on your using the ones that in the cressida hubs or starting out new a fresh set. A good set of Timken bearings and seals cost around $50. you choose clean all the parts and repack the bearings with grease before installation. The may need to be rebuilt if the seals to be damaged or leaking. Rebuild kits are affordable and easy to Alway make sure to plenty of moly grease to the slide pins so the calipers drag or bind. I really the 2 large floating pins these Cressida calipers to the way the Supra calipers are designed it is a and more robust design.

If you have the bigger wheels this upgrade requires you may need longer lugs. The lugs that aftermarket use do not thread as far down on the stud as the lugs do, so for safety reasons its to install a longer stud so lugs will be grabbing all of their threads. I use Doorman number 98521 studs are approximtely 1/4 longer and allow my to fully engage the studs. Use a to pound out your old studs the hub. Using an M12x1.5 nut and molly lube you can thread it on and the new studs into the hubs. If you the stud while you are tightening the you will be able to feel the in the stud engage the grooves in the hub whel lined up properly pull right on with fuss.

For the rotors you will need for the 87 or 88 Cressida sedan. These are 14mm larger in diameter vs 258mm) and are 2mm thicker (21mm vs I prefer to use stock replacement rotors, they are of the highest and very affordable. I purchased my through Auto Parts which sells these rotors for $29 each with shipping on orders over Here are some comparison of the stock rotors versus the new rotors.

The last piece to puzzle are the brake pads. benefit of this upgrade is a better pad selection. These were used on Toyota well into the 1990’s as as the Cressida which means should be readily avaliable into the future. One option is to use the Metal Master pads I used in my stock brake The Metal Master pads a FF friction rating and will quite a bit of abuse at triple speeds or heavy use on a short course before fading. option which I chose to use are the Friction Carbon Metallic which Autozone keeps in so there is no mailorder mumbo when it is time for new pads, a 3 year warranty is included. pads have an incredible FG rating which is well the exotic range of braking Read this short and chart if you would like to more about friction and brake pad edge codes. are the Performance Friction pads in all

glory, they also built in shims for a nice install.

Thanks to John B of the CelicaSupra for discovering this upgrade and the original writeup so that I follow along. Here is the assembled product, I have using these brakes for 2 months now and have encountered no or negative aspects to this
