Why make life difficult? Do it right, get matching calipers and get it done!

Lexus did some minor upgrades for the 1993 model year which included larger brake rotors, and, I presume, different brake calipers. I don't think you will be able to use these two calipers.

you can upgrade up to 2000 ls 400

I was not aware that you could upgrade the calipers without upgrading the rotors and caliper mounting brackets. I'm probably wrong, as I'm new to Lexus, though.

Well, what did you find out? :)

(My biggest pet peeve on car forums is people who post threads, get lots of suggestions, and then don't post the outcome. If you don't post an outcome, you're not really contributing anything to the knowledge base!)

they work perfect, I also painted them red before I put them on.I would love to post pics but I dont no how.the upgrade was perfect.Thanks to all

Feel a hella better than the singles don't they? :cheers: Like getting a new car! Read up on posting pics. There's a thread in the General section, one of mine actually when I couldn't get them on myself. Basically just copy the link from wherever you store them online and paste them into your post.
