    Sorry if I missed the info, I tried searching and can't seem to find it...

    I read a post about the newer Lexus GX460 / 4runner brake upgrade for our trucks.
    You have to shave down the caliper brackets to center them but everything bolts right up.

    I have a 13wl upgrade but I want to try it out.
    Does anyone have the info?

    I basically just looking to confirm how much of the bracket you need to shave off to get a quote from the machine shop before I buy everything.

    Also, I want to confirm the casting number, 14 something...

    Thanks guys!

    Nevermind right after I post this I find it... :rofl:

    The 14WA rotors are 1” larger in diameter compared to the 13WL rotors

    If you go for it, then how about writing up an exposé. Looks like a lot of work and $$$. That machine work grinding the ears looks like its about 3mm (from reading) and needs to be spot on. I wonder if that weakens the casting?

    Likely a little weaker. But I don’t believe there’s enough taken off to cause alarm
