  1. My GS300 brakes developed a very annoying high pitch squeal. It only happens when I apply my breaks at a certain pressure (the most optimum pressure) but not when I press the pedal lightly or hard. I had my car serviced at Sydney City Lexus least month and they confirmed there is about 70% of brakes left and the only way to get rid of the squeal is to replace the discs and pads which sounds like an overkill. Have any of you dealt with the same issue and have any suggestions for the most cost effective way to deal with it? Many thanks.
  2. I'm looking to spray my calipers on my IS350 F the same colour or something as close to the orange calipers on the the new F line of lexus. If anyone knows where i can get the paint or something similar please let me know as ive searched all corners of the internet with no success. It seems like its just that shade of orange is no where to be found. I might try the dealer tomorrow but not sure how much luck ill have. Pic for reference Thanks
  3. Hi All, I thought I would post into the ISF page as the RC page is fairly quite (dead!). I have just completed my RCF brake upgrade last week. I thought I would let you guys know as some may be interested when time comes for the ISF's. I decided to replace with RR-Racing Competition 2 Piece Slotted Rotors front and rear, with Endless MX72 pads front and rear. They went onto the car without any issues and fitted perfectly. A big thanks to Lexus of Chatswood for checking my work after I had completed. These guys do really look after me very well. I think the brakes look great and they are noise free. I have now completed about 1000km so far and they are still quite. I have not stomped on them yet! A big test will be a track day in July so hopefully they perform as good as they look. I have included 2 quick photos of before and after. My modifications to date are now: 1. RR-Racing Air/Oil Separator 2. RR-Racing USRS 3. RR-Racing Competition 2 Piece Slotted Rotors 4. NGK One Step Colder Spark Plugs - to be fitted
  4. Op please remove if I am in the wrong area. Requirements - wheel size 18" Wheels Supplied parts - 2x 4 pot caliper (left front, right front), 2x rotors as is (needs to be machined), 2x brake pads (as is). The whole conversion takes about 1 hour and its probably a good time to change the brake fluid (mine was black ). Pm for price i have 2 sets located in Sydney. PS sorry about the photos of the dirty gutter burned rims, due to be fixed and caliper pain in a few weeks
  5. Hi guys, Some time ago i replaced all 4 rotors with the 2-piece items from Racing Brakes (ordered through FIGS I also got a set of Carbotech 1521 pads on their recommendation. Everything went on just fine and they perform fantastic, however pretty much ever since they went on there has been a clunk probably 90% of the time when i touch the breaks. You can hear it and feel it through your ass and in the pedal. i am certainly guessing it is the brakes. I have pulled them off and checked everything, and even had Lexus check it all out during a regular service but no luck. They could feel and hear the issue when driving but basically told me they couldn't do anything about it and that it was an "issue with your fancy aftermarket brakes". I have checked and rechecked all bolts, pins, springs and so on and everything looks rock solid. The only thing i have noticed is that i can move the pads with my finger and when they hit on the caliper/retaining-pin, it "kinda" sounds like the noise i hear in the car when driving, but its impossible to really say sitting still. I made a little video of it here (sorry pretty crappy - the clunking starts about 30secs in) which i sent to FIGS seeing if they could help but again no luck. Is this movement normal compared to standard pads? So i am wondering if anybody has experienced anything like this before or has any tips? I still have my original rotors which i can swap back to as a test, but i no longer have the standard pads, and to buy a new set just to test is an expensive exercise. Anybody got some old OEM's lying around that i could borrow for a few days? :) Looking for any tips or advice! Appreciate it.

  7. Hi all, I'm in a bit of a bind with regards to which exact model of Akebono FRONT brake pads will fit my 2005 GS300. Here's why. The Australian Akebono website says it's ACT908: However, this model did not fit Sockeye's 2005 GS300: I ordered the ACT1113 which fit on Sockeye's front calipers: However, for my 2005 GS300, the ACT1113s definitely do not fit the FRONT calipers but do fit the back. Here's what they look like next to the current FRONT brake pads when we went to replace them yesterday: It's a bit fuzzy but you can see that the size of the ACT1113 pads when put next to the current ones is far too small to fit. Not a loss for me as I will simply keep the ACT1113 pads for when my back brake pads need replacing but I still need front brake pads. Has anyone got the same car and/or do they know which model of Akebono ceramic brakes fit? I have also looked into Bendix General CT but I've been told Akebono are excellent pads.
