[quote name='Loyale 2.7 Turbo'][SIZE=3][COLOR=yellow]Thank you Mark, You're So Kind; but that Thread was pointed about the Rear Brakes and my Problem are with the Front Brakes... So I Still need a Solution.

This thread was offered up as a way for you to eliminate the park brake cable from your front calipers and relocating them to the rear. Best of luck resolving your brake issues.

Yes, I Understood That, I Believe that's a Good Idea too...

Thank You again.

...I have 4 lug EA knuckles, 5 lug EA xt6 knuckels, and 1st gen legacy knuckles down at my shed. If you want I can mix and match parts and see what fits for you. ...


Oh my God! ... Yes!!! :banana:

Please do that if you Could... Because if you can tell me Which exactly Caliper Works in the EA Braclet, without e-Brake Stuff... it could be the Answer to my Prayers!

Thank you in Advance.
Kind Regards.

I have to do some work on my daily driver in the next couple of days. I'll bring my EJ calipers in to see what it would take to swap them on to the EA knuckles. As for the Nissan Silvia, that was sold in the US as the 240SX. Could have been sold there also.

OK... Long time Passed by and I already Lost the Hope to obtain the EJ Calipers fitted on EA Bracklets.

Now I want to Buy both Front Calipers Brand New...

Does Anybody know where (on-Line) Could I buy them Cheap? (Complete with the e-Brake Setup)

Kind Regards.

Rockauto.com is your best bet. I got refurbished calipers there for cheap, and they work well. Check online for discount codes for them too.

Sorry I couldn't help more. I don't have the resources.

JesZek, lo siento mucho. Estoy totalmente de espacio, en esta cosa. Creo que usted podría conseguir pinzas EJ de la existencia, pero que va a requerir algún fabricación bastante extensa. Puesto que usted ha hecho una conversión ER27, sospecho que no será un gran problema para usted. Sólo se advirtió. La próxima vez que tenga mi GL en el ascensor, yo prometo que voy a entrar ahí con las pinzas de EJ y ver los detalles. Lo sentimos!

ScoobyWagon: Thank You... the Front Calipers I Need, aren't for my ER27 Wagon (which is Crashed now) Those are for my Other Wagon, the Weberized EA82...

Kind Regards.

Right now, a Friend in Miami Fl. just called me by Phone, he's Coming here to Visit me and asked if I Wanted Something from there...

I Just Asked him to Search for the Front Calipers for my EA82 Wagon. Maybe a Rebuilt set...

That's good news, although I'm sure you could have had rebuilt ones delivered to you weeks ago if you had used rockauto.com.

I haven't had any major problems with it in the past, but I know what you're saying. It can't be as bad as keistering brake calipers on an airplane:lol:

I was trying to be funny. I think that word originates from people trying to sneak things into prison. They'd put them in their butts, or "keisters" because that's the only place the guards wouldn't look. Obviously your friend in Florida won't be doing that, but I'd imagine he or she may have at least some difficulty moving calipers.

I've only dealt with the Canadian border, so my experience may be quite different.

Shipping overseas can be a major huge pain in the rear. There are tricks to get around custom crap, and whatnot. But buying from an online retailer and having them ship overseas can be the biggest pain. They legally can't lie about why they're sending the package, so it can hang up in customs, get major fees attached to it, etc.
If it's just a personal package you can say it's a gift, or sample merchandise or something and it'll get through without an issue.

Thank you for your Kind Reply... Now I Understood "Keisters" :)

The Guy that is Searchin' for the Calipers just called by Phone again, asking my Subie's Vin Number... he said that the Salesman needed it to Search for the Proper Part on their Database...

I'm Crossing Fingers now...

if he could bring those calipers here, I will Avoid Taxes and Shipping Costs. :banana:

Kind Regards.

Well... Yes!

I experienced that Several times, including my Brand New Weber Conversion Kit I Obtained in 2006 online, and more recently, the Rear Disc Brakes sent by a Good Friend here, in USMB.

Customs Clearance was a Nightmare.

My Friend called again, the Salesman needed more Details about my Ride and the Parts I Needed, so my Friend gave his Cellphone to the Salesman to Talk Directly to me.

Holy Weird Behaviour... After I Gave the Needed Details, he Just said:

"...Your Car is Very Old, go get a New one..." :( "...we Don't have that Part..."

So, Seems like I Lost the Chance for Now...

What he said is total BS, but I'm not surprised. When will your friend visit you? He may still have time to order from Rockauto or a good Subaru parts place like subarugenuineparts.com.

Thank you, Jacob.

Hes's Coming Tomorrow Morning, so I'll Travel to the Capital City Airport, but Also I've Called to the Local Subaru Dealer There, Asking about which parts they have to Rebuilt my actual Calipers... Again!

The Salesman said something About a kit with New Pistons + O-Rings. So I Have a Question:

is Worth Buying New Pistons for my Old Calipers?

I Tought that Those will Never need to be Changed...

Well...

I obtained some extra Money and went to the Stealership to buy New Parts to Rebuild (once again) my Subie's Front Calipers; also I Asked for a New Hill Holder Check Valve, just in Case I had Enough Money...


First I Asked for the Price of a Brand New Complete Caliper, The Salesman Show me this:


Posted Image



Yes, They Have it but Only two for the Left Side... :banghead: ...and is Very Expensive



Posted Image



its Cost is around $ 180.ºº US Dollars, but the Funny Thing is that Subaru Wrote...



Posted Image



... Cariper, instead of Caliper...


That's a Japanese usual Translation Mistake, to Confuse the "L" with the "R" Letter? I remember something about an Aporogize for a similar Confusion...
