    ah gotcha. well either way I am sure someone in canada makes refurbs or remans. Centric is one of the biggest one out there. No need to buy new if your going with the OEM swap. Any questions toss them in. The stainless lines will be a big difference in the setup as well. Just make sure to get the right length.

    I priced them out at napa and they were only $100 cheaper than the ones I found online that were OEM. As of right now I have extended stainless lines from a seller on here. Not too sure what I will do for pads and callipers. Still have to keep looking. Appreciate all the help, and the work on this.

    Mine re 2015 T4R Calipers. Bolted up fine. I want able to use the anti sequel sleeves (came with the EBC Green pads) that snap into the calipers, with those installed the pads wouldn't fit, and even without them they were real tight

    Ok got it. I figure that would work. It was probbaly the Lexus that had issues. As long as they are 14WA it works.

    Were the pistons full pressed back? I assume so but just wondering. Was golf to toss some EBC next.

    What is the difference in those front calipers? I know they are different manufactures, but the pictures also look different...

    The page I linked has front and rear calipers. All the 14WA calipers will look the same.

    OEM pads for the time being... I may upgrade to something else when these need to be replaced.

    I'm finally about to do this swap, but still needing to order calipers. Still a bit confused on which calipers to get. Looking here - https://www.partsgeek.com/catalog/2010/toyota/4runner/brake/brake_caliper.html at Centric & A1 Cardone brands. The A1's photo definitely looks more accurate and I can see the 14WA stamped, but the Centric is hard to tell. The original post also states "Caliper Manufacture - Advics". I just want to make sure I order the right caliper the first time. :)

    Any advice?

    My calipers are Centric. Centric is a reman company and Advics is the original company that made them and our an OEM supplier. 14WA is the correct caliper to order. but that should be the caliper for the 10-14 5th gen. I am not sure about after that. I recall someone saying it is different after 14 but not confirmed by me.

    also I think the picture they have up is not correct. Should look like the A1 Cardone Brake Caliper - Front Right. But Centric is what I have.
