I am interested in swapping the front caliper/rotors/pads on my 2007 Camry V6 with 19" wheels with the Highlander components. Does anyone have factory part numbers for these items so I know that I'm getting the correct stuff?

Thanks in advance!

47730-48150 (RH Caliper) [Full Caliper Asm - Includes Mounting Bracket]
47750-48110 (LH Caliper) [Full Caliper Asm - Includes Mounting Bracket]

And if you want to rebuild used calipers:
04478-48150 (Front Disc Brake Cylinder Kit) [Includes Pin Dust Boot, Bleeder Plug Cap, Brake Line Washers, Piston Seals, No. 1 Cylinder Slide Bushing]
04947-48080 (Disc Brake Fitting Kit) [For the Brake Pads]
47715-48150 (No. 1 Cylinder Slide Pin)
47714-48150 (No. 2 Cylinder Slide Pin)
47547-20010 (Bleeder Plug)
90014-AA602 (Flange Bolt) [Caliper to Pin Mounting Bolts]

I think I got everything right, if you want to check... go to toyotapartseast.com and look up 2008 Highlander, JPP, and 2GR-FE. I don't think the calipers are different between trim levels.

I'm not going to bother with the rotors or pads, cause that's up to personal preferences on what to get.

Edit: yup, confirmed that trim level does not matter. PN's for the calipers are all the same.



By the way, I don't think I've thanked you yet viper2104! You're a pioneer

I'm currently in the process of updating my rear brakes to Mitsubishi 380 items, which can be done using a simple 10mm bracket - this isn't much use to the US as the 380 was an Australia only model, but my research did find a possible bolt on for the US market.

The Lexus IS350 or the GS450H both use a 310mm vented rear rotor that is a direct bolt on for the gen6 etc Camry, including the handbrake inner hub diameter (190 min, 191 max). The centre bore is also 62mm and the height is only 2.5mm different from standard.
The issue is that these models are very rare here in Australia and almost impossible to find bits for 2nd hand (we only just got the IS350 after all), hence I haven't been able to source a caliper for testing purposes. I do know the banjo bolt is the same on the brake line, so the only unknown is the caliper mounting points.

These rear brakes would be a substantial upgrade to the factory fare and well compliment the Highlander fronts especially through the twisty bits when the stock rears are not at all suited for dissipating heat.

Just food for thought for the US crew. If I'm able to find those parts here in Australia I'll be directing my effort here other than the Mitsubishi 380 upgrade.

Sweet! So the parking brake drum portion of the IS350 rear rotor is same diameter as stock on the Gen 6? or do you have to swap the parking brake hardware as well?

I found a brake change guide for the IS350 rear brakes, and the picture included the inscription on the brake rotor hub that said "Max Dia 191 MM" which is the same as what is on the Aurion/Camry and the 380 rotors I got. A check with a tape revealed that was precisely the internal HAT diameter which is of course what the parking brake shoes hold against.

The only issue is that the splash guard will have to be removed, which thankfully on being a front wheel drive vehicle is not difficult at all. Cutting the lip of the splash guard works as well.

I think the splash guard is part of the backing plate on the 05, so I would probably have to cut the lip. Looks like it's a no go for a direct swap without parking brake hardware anyway though, max diameter is 171 mm on my 05.

I would have to grab the backing plate and the associated parking brake hardware from a gen 6. I don't think the lexus backing plate will bolt up easily, seeing as the parking brake cable locations are completely different. Doubt the gen 6 backing plate will bolt up easily either.

I think the back brakes are a waste of money... most of your braking comes from the front anyway as it is a FWD car. The OEM brakes do just fine.

Unless all you want them for is a "cool factor".

^you're right, rear brakes would mostly be for the cool factor for me

it looks like i'm not doing it anyway, too much involved to swap it over. i've already swapped drums to discs and that was a pain... to essentially do it all over again for minimal gains and pure looks with the lexus brakes is just not worth it.

my new coworker has been doing autox in his miata, i might go with my camry next spring. it'd be interesting to see how my car does with the suspension and brake mods.

I run mine on the track. Not Auto-X but an actual road course, i did it once a few years ago with stock brakes... a lot of brake fade..and i ran one in sept after the Supra brakes and SS lines were put on...no brake fade and awesome braking power.

I am adding four point braces front and rear in the spring for more stability and stiffness.

I'd rather spend the money to do the rear brakes on something better towards the handling and stability areas.

LE05 - Yes for a moment there I forgot you had a Gen5 and hence a different handbrake arrangement.

You shouldn't downplay the rear brakes that much, they are still an important part of the braking system and when pushed will be the weak link in an otherwise solid setup. You don't tend to notice the difference much when they fade due to the stock bias but the rear brakes will be offsetting the performance of the upgraded fronts when on the track or during spirited driving.

Here in Australia we have the TRD supercharged Aurion, which feature updated brakes and we have repeatedly found during hard driving the rear brakes cop their fare share of abuse as well.

Picked up a complete 329mm 2008 Kluger(Highlander) setup from the wreckers for just $300 a while back (Calipers, rotors and pads). Finally got around to installing it.

Never even personally changed brake pads before this. Whole thing bolted on without much fuss! The only thing is, the Kluger dust cover couldnt fit. Rest was suprisingly straight forward.

Will clean the wheels up and take some proper shots later.

Holy crap! That new brake setup looks massive on against 17" wheels, haha!

Did you happen to know the weight difference from the original calipers/rotors vs. the Highlander calipers/rotors?

Also, what are your overall impressions of the new brake setup? Is it much better than the original?

Thanks.

Measured:
Original rotors = ~6Kg/rotor
Kluger rotors = ~9Kg/rotor

Estimated:
Kluger calipers weighed maybe ~1.5kg a more than the originals which were probably ~4Kg
