    So i just bought a 91 GT that i swapped a 99 rav 4 3sfe into. The car is really well equipped except it has drums in the back I have a 89 GTS thats going to get scrapped soon and i wasd wondering if its possible to swap the 4th gen rear discs on the 5th gen?

    it should be. however you might need to change the strut too. it would be the same issue of putting 182 rear coilovers into 162's with the upper knuckle to strut bolt not being the same

    thanks entrax, another quick question maybe somebody can help me with. My 91 has a swapped 1998-99 3sfe out of a Rav4. I was wondering if a 5sfe header fits on a 3sfe seeing as the engines are damn near identical.

    It should, i have a 5sfe manifold sitting on the 3sfe I have out in the shop. (all the 3s exhaust manifolds were missing from the cars in the wrecking yard, grabbed a 5s one and it fit.)

    The rear disc should swap right over, per toyodiy the hub assembly is the same part between the cars. The rear disc stuff (backing plate, caliper bracket, etc.) should literally bolt right onto the knuckle. (as a side note the 1st gen camry shares the same part, so my camry will get the rear discs from the 86 gts im parting out!)
