Big Brake Kits?
Hey all, I know there's AEM, ROTORA, SSBC and companies like that. Prob is I have a GT and want to convert the rear to disc. I only know of SSBC conversion for the rear, but like the Rotora kit(only front). Other than TRD does anyone know of a big brake kit that converts the rear to disc and also replaces the fronts too. I don't want to use 2 different brands of kits.

get the rear brakes from a GTS, but instead of replacing the rotors with the factory rotors get a BB rear kit that would be for a gts and install it

I thought of that, but has anyone ever actually done the GT/GTS conversion fot the rear discs. I heard people say the axels are different sizes so it's not possible to do and stuff like that. I don't know the truth to that but...??? It sounds like it would work.

yes people have done it, i dont know about the axles being different sizes.. i'd have to let someone who has done the swap fill in because i haven't done it before so i dont know exactly what parts you need
