Hi Guys,

Sorry to only have posted here when im needing advice, but i do have another question for you lot. Ive done some searching through the site regarding brakes on the MK1 (uk spec, not Aritso), and i see that IS brakes, and indeed MK2 brakes fit. Is this correct? If so, are the pads the same aswell? :unsure:

Ive seen these, would these disc & pad combo's be correct for my mk1 Sport?

Excellent, Thankyou for your reply. I'll get some ordered up. And yeah i'd agree with avoidng the cheap pads. Ive had mintex before and they are generally pretty damn B) good.

I had whichever pads KwikFit use on my 300 Sport and never experienced fade or any other problems. I had the car for 6 years and put around 60,ooo miles on the clock so benefitted from their " free replacements for as long as you own the car" policy. They even replaced the pads FOC when I needed new discs fitted.

I must admit, thats a pretty good deal they do. And you'd probably find the pads they fit are the likes of ferodo or mintex, a decent branded product.

However, kwik fit places around my way are filled with monkeys. Best avoided lol

Have ordered some discs & pads this morning so heres hoping they do indeed fit. From what i see its the imported Aristo models that have the smaller discs. And ones for the mk2 should fit no probs :zee:

I think it was the early non-turbo Aristos which had the small brakes (275mm vs 296mm).

The Mk2 GS front brakes are identical to the Mk1. Rears are different.

Well, discs & pads are on. Thanks to a good friend who helps me out. Mintex pads are obviously up to scratch but the discs are also excellent. And are the exact same brand ive paid allot more for before, from so called Toyota specialists. The seller was also very helpful and service was excellent. Arrived next day in a proper big box taped up properly. Just incase anybody is interested and needs new stoppers. I would def use them again.

Need to order calliper seal kits for the front though - not too healthy :whistling:

Thanks again to those who advised
