Has anyone ever done a 205 brake swap onto a 184? Are the hubs the same as on the ST185?

Awesome. I have access to CNC milling machines so brackets and spacers won't be a problem.

Don't bother.

 

But if you make a bracket to run a decent size rotor (because 205 ones are hard to come by) I'll be keen.

I know that I shouldn't bother but it'll be a good project plus an excuse to run the machines..

If you want cheaper but better than what we got go for this set up, which i stole from another forum and they know their stuff but i have not seen or tried this set up

Adm larger discs and larger single pot caliper series 2 92/93 adm st184 has the larger single piston calipers and rotors, the early 89-91 have small single pot/rotors you just need the rotors, pads and calipers. will all bolt to the front cast hub carrier. all the st18x front hub carriers are the same (99%sure)
If you need help identifying them, they've got 57-25 stamped onto the caliper (as opposed to 57-22 stamped onto the earlier model calipers).

The ST204 Celica has 278mm rotors, with single piston calipers.
But you can use the twin piston calipers of a ST215 Caldina (which use the same 278mm rotor) to get more bite.
All bolts on.


Hope that made some sense but hope it was informative and gives you ideas for better brakes. 

 

I love yelllows

Does anyone who's done the conversion know by how much does the disc foul the ball joint at the front? I don't really want to grind any of the ball joint away but if it's close (like ~1mm) I can machine the difference off the mounting face of the caliper and run a slightly thicker spacer behind the disc and push the whole assembly out to clear the joint.

Is there any other way around it?
