Hi Guys

I am utterly disgusted and confused as i'm trying to upgrade to 93+ brakes.

I've been told the rears are bigger than the fronts (also f/r are bigger than -92) I know the fronts are bigger, but i can only find the contrary on the rears.

As I'm searching through the Toyota EPC, the only difference i can see are the fronts, and according to the EPC, 90-95 rears are the same.

Someone who knows this for a fact, please clarify on the rears for me. I'm trying to avoid spending more than I should.

Here's what I know.

The fronts are bigger and should have a marking of 22V.

I know my rears has 16V, but again, the EPC says 90-95 are exactly the same. Please see pics below.

91-92 Fronts



93+ Fronts



90+ Rears



not to beat the dead horse, if the rears are different wouldn't the EPC show so? Thanks for your time and patience

The rears are definitely bigger. I have 93 rears. To be safe order 94 rears, that way they can't mess up. Some people think 93 rears are the same as 91's but I have found this to be untrue. Why would Toyota only make the fronts bigger in 93 then decide to make the rears bigger, all 4 where upgraded for the 93 turbo models. Maybe N/A rear brakes are the same from 91 and up, but not the turbo models.

the rears are bigger on the 93. and as redblues said, it should have 22v printed on the calipers. the 16v are for 91-92
regarding brake pads, well they all the same for the rear.
