Is it because of their name is on the piece of **** cast iron??
I dont wanna start a war or anything. I just wanna see what you guys think, and see if you can give me a REAL advantage or reason why brembo charges so much.
A week ago I had to replace a front caliper on a 08 or 09 toyota sequoia. It was a huge 4 piston caliper. Ive seen a 350z brembo caliper and the toyota one is basically the SAME EXACT size and weight. I'm not saying these will be a substitute because they probably wont bolt up. But used 350z brembos go for approx $1k + for a pair or all 4 whatever!!! The one toyota caliper which is a rebuild was $120 at a local parts store.
You cant say the brembos are made for hard braking and strength. Because the V8 sequoia has a curb weight of 6k. If it could stop that tank it can stop a 3300lb car at any speed......
I just think its rediculous that a company can charge 10 times for the same **** because their name is on it. But thats life i guess...
Here are pictures of the toyota and 350z brembo calipers. They are just pics and no the toyotas are not smaller. you can go to a parts store and see for your self. LOLOL they are basically identicle. The silver ones are toyotas.
