make sure that you make your request a one shot deal, because for some reason they do not respond to replied emails. when you send your request, include absolutely all the information that you have; part#s, address, quantity, etc.

AHA! The e-brake cables are different/specific to driver and passenger sides.

Just to clarify proportioning valve and metering valve. They are 2 completly different components in a braking system. Rear disc brakes don't use a metering valve, only a proportioning valve. The metering valve is used only in drum systems so the front calipers don't engage before the shoes can overcome the springs. The porportioning valve is used in both setups so there's the braking is balance 60/40, or in our case (can't remember don't quote me) 70/30 I believe for FWD. The metering valve is usually built into the porportioning valve which would mean you would have to swap for starlets due to brake bias or possible complecations.

Back to brake destruc.... I mean engineering. Lol

Ok, I am really confused now? I need to know which starlet year is compatible to do the "REAR DISC CONVERSION" I am not trying to BUY anything new yet. There has to be a way to get all this done without spending a GRAND.
I did a 1999 Subaru Forester Rear Disc Conversion from a 2005 WRX and only spent $300 Shipped to my door. Yeah, I have one of those to play in the snow!
