Maybe a call to Hoppers Stoppers?
Their ad says: (Under "Toyota)
"-Rear wheel drive models from 1st Corolla to last Cressida, inc 80s Supra, Crown, Corona, Celica and other derivates -Hilux 2WD 5 stud models 1980-current. -UZZ30/31 Soarer 330mm.
Yeah. I've changed my signature. The old one was out of date...
What if climate change IS a hoax, and we make a better world for nothing?

For rotors go to the DBA website, they have a catalogue that lists makes of vehicles,models,years. Part number of rotor whether hub type or not etc. Importantly for the research hot rodder they list the the spec for the rotor has offset from inner face to hubface for the wheel, diameter,thickness,min/max ,and center hole bore, rotor vented or not. FRONT OR REAR APPLICATION. Armed with your prepared list of vehicles with the same PCD you can print the pages you want from the vehicle makes and then compare for suitable rotors for your own task. One little important spec is the thickness of the rotors. This is also invaluable when cross matching calipers. Not much point in choosing calipers from a make that had thinner rotors and you suddenly find that new pads will not allow fitment to thicker rotors of another make, Ford and Toyota we have with same PCD, Magna is another.

https://dba.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2 ... E-2020.pdf. Makes it easier. This lists all rather than having to go make/model searches. Save it as a favourite' short cut
