Need rear knuckles with all the brake components as well as parking brake cables. Should all be an easy bolt on. Smile

Correct, many done it here already. They used system from E11.
After conversion each wheel will be positioned 10mm more to the inside. Keep that in mind...

Hard brake lines and Master do not need to be changed. BUT the Proportioning Valve should be changed to even out the pressure better.

A few points worth mentioning:

* The brake line no longer gets secured to the rear struts like the drum brake set-up, so make sure the brake line is still attached to the rear calipers when you buy them. This is how it's designed from factory on the disc brake set-up.

* The proportioning valve doesn't need to be changed, but if you have the opportunity to do it then it's advised.

* The long bolt going through the knuckle is usually very difficult to get out as they seize over the years. Soak it with WD-40 and whack the threaded end with a brass hammer (a normal steel hammer will damage the threads completely).

* You don't need the lateral arms for the swap, but they do feature better bushings (rose joints) compared to the factory rubber Corolla ones.

* If you run two toe adjustment arms (the threaded arm towards the back of the car) you can have the ability to adjust the rear camber.

* Make sure the handbrake is released before doing the swap.

No you can use your original shocks Smile. €120 isn't a bad price for the whole set. See if you can get the proportioning valve thrown in (mounted to the firewall) Approve!

Yeah the picture shows all you need. And 120 is dirt cheap! Buy it now! Smile

Also, as mentioned before, it's quite straight forward. If you need help just ask, there's always someone with an answer.

No the proportioning valve is mounted on the left side of the firewall, quite low down. It has 4 brake lines going into it.

The proportioning valve is advised to get the max out of the disks... however it is not mandatory for the swap. I didn't change the valve... still going strong... I do want to change it some day tho, to improve the braking even more, but it has low priority as I need to get the air out again.

But if you (can) do it while changing the brakes... do it rightaway Wink

I agree. I've been running my original proportioning valve for 4-months since the swap and my car brakes fine, but I'm doing more work on the braking system soon so am going to swap over the valve while all the fluid is drained. So if you have the opportunity to do it at the same time then it's definitely worth it Smile

Yes BZ-R Levin's have ABS, but it's perfectly fine to use the proportioning valve on your non-ABS Corolla. That is indeed the proportioning valve you took a photo of. I've never seen one that rusty though....

You don't need any additional pipes for the valve and you can use your current lateral arms instead of the Levin ones.

Na you don't need that. That's the clutch release cylinder which bolts to the gearbox. The lines for it are bolted to the front of the proportioning valve, which is probably why it was included, but it's completely unrelated for what you're doing Smile

You have never seen to many cars from Ireland or the UK .

Nice easy swap to do once the long bolt comes out easy .
