Re: TQC Brake Upgrade

Most folks that sell the calipers give you just that the caliper with the
pistons in it, that's not enough, you need the caliper/pad carrier, the part
that actually bolts up to the strut....  They are different on the single vs
dual piston....  The rotors are thicker on the dual piston and have vents
near the hub.....  The lines are longer on the dual pistons, cuz the metal
"S" pipe that connects the line to the caliper is not on the dual pistons, it
goes directly to the hole in the caliper, so the line will  also have a male
end on the piston side instead of female on the single......  I converted my
old 86 5ktq, and found these issues pretty quickly.......
