I just put bigger struts in the lancer I went to buy brake parts but were told these are not sigma.
So looking at the Bendix book it looks like they are scorpion.

Problem is if they are scorpion Repco said the pads are no longer available. DB297.

They're weird :wut:

They're not galant/sigma (except gd and ge, I have no idea what they look like)..

Just checked out gh scorp. They look close to my gh sigma calipers on my gb...

So I'd have to say, I have no idea. But they're not gh scorp

Looks like Scorpion to me. I have GK pads in my GH so I guess they do not change model to model?
Supercheapauto.com.au still list them as available, and I can buy them at Burson Auto Parts as well.

Scorp / Starion (depending on width).

Cheers.

Scorp imho
but I know nothing about Starions
As I remember it Scorp are full floating, Sigmas pinch ...?

Hmm... I'll jack the scorp up tomorrow and take some pics... Pretty sure they're a large setup like the sigma/commodore

US Starion Front caliper

Another US Starion Front caliper

Sapporo/Scorpion Front Brake caliper


The only real difference between the Starion and Scorp caliper is the Starion can take a wider rotor.

So, the original pic posted. Is that just the inside half of the caliper??

No, but the Starion's front and rear are.
