Default EVO Rear brake caliper in place of stock 2G Rear.

Can anyone confirm that the Evo 8ish Rear Brake Calipers will bolt on in place of the stock 2G rears? I know some people were claiming they did on the Evo X Brake Conversion thread...

mine are trashed from someones absolutely shitty attempt at rebuilding them, and they are unsaveable. I cannot find stock rear 2G Cailpers anywhere...

Thank you.

Pretty sure it was any of the evos would fit the rear after some finese....aka elongating the mount holes

I think we need more info on this as 2G rear calipers are nearly impossible to find now.
Would be great to find an alternative.
We should be looking at caliper piston size (mechanical advantage) vs. stock 2G as well. Easy enough to compare piston sizes.
If anyone knows more, please post up!

A quick search of Rock Auto shows good news -
2006 EVO rear piston dia = 38.42 mm
1996 Dodge Stealth TT dia = 38.1 mm

Both are X2 pistons of course.

Rotor diameters are near identical (within a few thousanths)

EVO rotor appears to be about .080" thicker.

Rockauto also shows all 2006 EVO rear calipers out of stock! Just like 2G 3K calipers...

Evo VIII and IX rear calipers are direct bolt on. I've been running them on my car for a few years and they work great. Not sure if they clear the dust shields (especially on a 1G), since I deleted mine a long time ago.

EVOIIX-IX bolt on, X requires some modding to the mounts but they fit. They all require 2G rotors.

Great info!
Any details on brake line fitment?

Can you elaborate on what the mods to tabs consists of?

It looks like the 8-9 are nearly as hard to find as 2G calipers, and really expensive when you do find them.

It also looks like there are (2) Evo 10 variants? One piston and two piston? And the 2 piston is a one-sided design vs opposing design like 2G and EVO 8-9?
They are calling the 2 piston "Ralliart" version.
This is all based on Rock Autos website again...

Not positive if factory brake lines will work. I converted to a banjo bolt type when I did my brake upgrade.

Don't know enough about the Evo 10 Brembos. Perhaps a difference between the GSR and MR? The MR had two piece rotors up front, so maybe the rear brakes are different?

Have you tried going to your local parts store and get loaded calipers. I just did a car 4 months ago.

I did, all I was able to find one left Front caliper, and that was it, rears were not available anywhere, including online.
