Bit of a urgent question if anybody can help.

I've got my Spec-R in a garage as the passenger caliper has stuck on.

Are they the same as an S14 caliper?

Need to get this sorted ASAP

Thanks.

If you are feeling up to it and not into spending $$ with a mechanic, there is plenty of info around to be able to fix this yourself, Its easier then most people think.

That's good to know

I'm not brilliant with my hands though and it always ends with blood spilt :D
The garage actually got the pistons freed as it wasn't that bad, they cleaned them up and all seems well. If it comes back I'll just get the caliper changed.

The standard calipers are garbage, I'd look to upgrade if you intend to run decent power in the future :)

you can buy seal kits from places like RHDjapan or Nengun, pull the caliper off the car, pop the pistons out, give them a good clean and grease new seals in and replace pistons..... good as new, ive done it to about 3 cars now and i knew jack when i started looking in to it... i just hate paying other people money all it is
