    Ordered on January 7, chose free shipping option. Shipped from Holbrook, NY via FedEx that same day. They’re in Barstow, CA as of this morning, supposed to arrive in my hands tomorrow. Did not qualify for the $25 rewards credit though! Argh...

    These are the $90 Genuine Toyota calipers? I still wonder if they screwed up the price, strangely cheap. Good deal for sure.

    So I tried to subscribe to Toyota EU Tech Info and my credit card automatically declines the transaction! What! How annoying. I guess another route would be to search US Tech Info for (the Corolla repair manual regarding the union bolt referred in the oil leak thread) and rear caliper replacement in the Toyota Yaris SE repair manual....

    I was able to subscribe but could not find the union bolt torque setting! It showed the oil filter plate as one piece in all the diagrams I found on the 2ZR engines. Either that or it was the canister type in the diagrams....

    I opened one of my DuraLast calipers yesterday and was happy with how it looks. Still got stuff to order from Amayama, just got a shipping quote for almost $50, $48.xx more specifically....

    Not too shabby. (I'm happy with them). Well packaged, looks good, and I won't ever have to pay for a replacement again for the rest of my lifetime... 1579274439959.jpg
