Well finally got around to fitting some k sport coilovers for the airtrek and they are very very good took about 2hrs to fit and set up.. had to adjust the camber and reset the tracking dropped the car 50mm all round and tested on the road and it made a huge difference it is all about the set up i got some very good advice of a time attack champion.. overall very happy with this product:driver:

Yes front brakes are evo .brembo but you need to change the hubs and drive shafts to fit them the right way :driver:

you can also make a custom bracket to mount the brembo for front. so you dont have to get evo knuckle and driveshaft
Hi everyone, sorry for digging the old thread. I would like to know, is it safe to use caliper bracket in our car? or better goes with the evo7 knuckle and shaft?

If the bracket is of good quality steel or alu then it's fine. But if you can figure out how to swap the evo7 parts then do it. Either way works

Just a note though - changing the knuckle and all means more rims and potentially ARB connections.

ARB = Anti roll bar.

Sounds like like you got a pretty straight forward PNP installation. What brakes are these again?

driveshaft maybe ok coz airtrek most stuff should be pnp with evo 7.
omg it just occurred to me, he didnt really say he was going for evo brembos.....

if hes going for aftermarket brakes theres little point of going for evo knuckles (unless those are evo pnp brakes)

my appologize bros, yes, eyeing on Evo7 brembo. but not sure to go with bracket or straight change with knuckle, shaft etc. :)

ah ok. if like that u will need the knuckle and the driveshaft. did some search on other forums, evo driveshaft is a bit larger than airtrek so not direct pnp on the knuckle. if u just swap the calipers, just like u said, you will need brackets. but cheapest option is caliper and brackets.
