    So... has anyone found a rear brake upgrade (other than different pads)? Are there larger discs and callipers that bolt on?

    I have kluger disc, caliper on front, lowered, kyb shocks, larger rear sway bar, 245/45/18 tyres... so the rear brakes are the last of this type of things I would like to do. 



    kluger fronts calipers are enough if you dont intend to take it further and go track, if your rotors arent upgraded, i suggest going for some v-max slotteds, qfmA1rm are the go-tos for front pads, and hpx for rear. anything more, youd probably have deep pockets, then go for hawks, dixcels. 

    you dont need "bigger" rear brakes .. even normal pads will do. heck i even tracked on normal pads on the rear


    the next upgrade for fronts would probably be 4pots, iirc, there are brackets that you can get customized so you can bolt it on the fronts. 

    try looking at lexus ls400 front calipers, i think they go on a 330mm rotor. do some measuring, maybe they fit onto your brake hub, otheriwse fabricate or look for custom caliper mounts

    why not get some braided lines for a more sturdy feel ?

    same thing im gonna say 5 years ago. grab some braided lines, and if you are tracking, match the fluid with rbf600.

    There was a post on this Forum some years ago that the rear sway bar on the Sportivo was solid and on other models it was hollow. Internet searches was unable to confirm that statement. A local wrecker had the 40 series Sportivo, so $50 and a delightful 2 hours later in the damp after some morning showers. I had that Sportivo rear sway bar.  My 2006 Aurion ATX rear sway bar weighed 1.62kg and the Sportivo one weighed 2.74kg. I think that confirms that the Sportivo rear sway bar is solid. 

    Thanks for this ! Ill attach this information in the aurion FAQ thread, so hopefully in future when someone searches for it, it will be there.


    ive actually found this post from 2010 😁

    Yeah the AT-X Prodigy, Presara and SE models all have hollow rear bars. Only the Sportivo's and TRD cars have solid rear bars. 🙂

     does anybody know what is the diameter for the sportivo exhaust tips inlet and outlet? Someone stole my exhaust tip, going to buy aftermarket from eBay, thx

    tips should be generic if youre getting it from ebay, itll have bolts to go on, the stock pipes are 2"

    Hi is it possible to install recaro or bride seat on Camry 03 v6? What and where I can get the seat rail from?

    the easiest path would be if you know a welder to custom some rails, grab some rails from wreckers and chop them to fit.

    I have a leaking rocker cover which need to replace the seal, my local mechanic quote me $450 for the job to be done,

    v6 is a pita to work on, it usually the rear bank that gets leaks its common, but thats pretty worth imo..does take some time to open things and put them back together, mechanics usually charge $100 an hour to get jobs done

    Looking at doing my front Rotors and pads soon. Any opinions or advices of DBA T2 slotted rotors, and bendix ultimate pads ? I'll be getting a mechanic to do it.

    I have no objection to either there BigMike. Nice combo if you plan on driving spiritedly for a while

    i do, bendix ultimate cooks if you are hard on the brake in your spirited drive, especially downhills.


    id go remsa pads @$50 vs bendix

    vouch for vmax, i have them on right now, but i have aggressive pads (qfm a1rm). ive also used rda rotors and dba t3s .


    From experience the bendix general pads are okay for day to day normal driving, but the moment you take it on a spirited run, or even some downhills with some braking. Your fluid will cook, and your pedal will loose brake feel. i found remsa pads ($50) to be a bit better and cheaper compared to the bendix generals ($75)

    +1 for these rotors, cheaper than DBA T2, you can even opt for cheaper blanks instead of slotted

    whereas the driver side hasnt failed once.

    id just replace them, doesnt take too long nor is it difficult.


    btw Australian versions have xv36 body code.. acv36r (4cyl) / mcv36r (v6)  xv30 is the american camrys, incase you start looking for parts and they dont fit

    my 2004 camry park brake is a single 360` shoe, how do you replace it.

    ive changed mine once.. thats part is correct.. cant remember as ive done it a long time ago.. but i think there are clips/bolts that are holding them, to access it, you have to take off the rear rotor as the handbrake shoe is located inside there

    Does anyone know if its possible to order a set of the 18 inch ZR rims from Toyota

    Its possible, but knowing genuwine toyota parts usually will cost you an arm and a leg, iirc back then a TRD Kappa wheel costed $1000+ Ea brand new


    On 8/24/2019 at 12:56 PM, ajs13 said:

    possible to get a set anywhere else?

    have a look a wreckers as theyd usually buy written off cars, and if the wheels are still good, theyd sell them
