Sorry for the crappy pictures. But it may help, I'll get the wheel off later. I want to enjoy this thing. Changed plug wires today, went to change plugs but I didn't have a large enough deep socket. I had 17, any clue what the plugs are?

Okay, so I'm kind of sTuck. I have more pictures but don't feel like uploading right now. The new caliper I ordered was single piston with much smaller brake pads. The 275mm rotor fit on the driver side. So the question is. What caliper will fit the 275mm and has dual piston?

So what it comes down to is the stock gvr4 came with 275mm rotors but they were 4 lug. Order stock caliper it will fit on my rotor?

okay, its been a while... update but a shitty one. I got the caliper in mail, thought id have problem unscrewing the brake line from the caliper. came out easy . went to screw in the new caliper and stripped the threads on the brake line screw in. so... as of right now im in need of a new brake line. wich isn't so bad because I never did do that test since my bleeder screw was seized. its just bad because its perfect weather outside and have been waiting on that part for a week. if anyone knows of where to get a good replacement line. id be grateful. im going to try to screw it in before I install it on the car to make sure my caliper didn't cause me to strip the threads.


another question, I went to get the brake line off, do I have unscrew it before taking the c clip out or take the c clip out then unscrew... I haven't done much brake work past replacing caliper rotors and brakes. so lines are new to me. I foresee me fucking up the bracket, clip , or the next section of brake line(hard line) thanks yall...

You want to loosen the hard line on the car before removing the clip. Possibly unscrew it all the way. Then pull the clip to remove the hose.

You should be able to get a hose locally at an auto parts store, even if it takes them a day or two to get it.

Pissed off. What I gt for ordering shitty parts. The caliper stripped the threads on the brake Line. Got a new hoSe and did it again. No where carries that damn hose, so I can't rethread the caliper. Shit is a pain. Guess is another week down and another 120 in parts

So I got some parts in the mail. But I'm fed up. My car runs fine, it just can't move because of a caliper. It shouldn't be that hard to fix the damn thing. Here some pictures. I know they are not mitsubishi parts but common.... you'd think they would just work. Atleast with the combination I have here. I'm going to order another line, maybe call the dealer to see if they have.

This is stock caliper with autozone line. Im not sure brand. But this is as tight as it will screw by hand. I screwed in the replacement caliper on the hose still on the car and stripped it. And with a replacement hose. Any tricks? I don't want to strip another line if i don't have to. I'm thinking I'll take one of the calipers and rethread the hole and use this line.

This is the one that stripped 2 lines

I don't see anything wrong. The threads are tapered. Just snug them a bit and they should be good. The nut doesn't have to bottom out against the caliper.

Quoting marvinmadman:

I don't see anything wrong. The threads are tapered. Just snug them a bit and they should be good. The nut doesn't have to bottom out against the caliper.




They are not tapered threads (10 x 1.0 mm), but there is a seat to seal. It is correct they do not bottom out the nut on the caliper body.

Galant fixed. Build thread finally getting to an actual build? Dang. Pick up a 94 f250. Left me stranded. So I have my hands full on another project.
