Are is200 calipers the same as Altezza calipers?

Postby TuLegit2quitzz » Tue Feb 19, 2013 12:04 pm

Dropped the car into the mechanic and asked him to sort out some stuff and he said everything with the car is 100% now but just one thing.He said when the previous owner sprayed the back calipers he might not of put them back right because he thinks there is a spring or something missing.he said he is not to familiar with altezza breaks but thinks its a spring. My question is could i buy calipers from a lexus is200 and get them fitted or are lexus calipers different and will i have to get them from an actual Altezza! Or can you buy the caliper maleup parts individiualy? Thank you!

Exact same, as200 are single piston, just make sure you get the same either single or twin piston and as close to your year of car as possible :wink:
