    MX32 Cressida brake upgrade option

    Is there any one here did the conversion on MX32 from MX73 Cressida. I am trying to get information for front brake upgrades. Did lots of research, everyone talks about it, that's all. I am trying to get MX73 BC front coilovers, i know I need to get the spindles from MX73 and what else need to be modified?

    people have adapted z32 brakes to x7, ls400 provided you have wheels that clear them, and FC calipers are popular upgrades.

    youll have to find rotors that work and im not aware of any off the shelf caliper adapter or spacer and ring set that will bolt to the x7 suspension. all the ones i know of measured and made their own.

    I did not just talk about it. I fully detailed it in my build thread...because no one else did. If you go bigger than mx73 you seriously limit your wheel choice. In my opinion nothing bigger than 15 looks good on these cars. So that keeps brake options quite limited. 87-88 mx73 non wagon is what you are looking for.

    not too sure about what specific offsets and spoke designs will clear what, but the FC brakes my friend has on his corolla clear deep negative-offset 15" wheels just fine. probably an upgrade but you'd need custom made caliper adapters for it to bolt up.
