Id like to add PFL brake rotors to your list
Rears are for a early AWD 95 talon or eclipse, you want the set that is vented
Fronts are the same as an AWD 06 outlander.

Here in AU, AWD Magna/Veradas use the same pads as a VR4, so presumably the calliper is the same?

Magna/Verada is what the rest of the world knows as a Diamante. USDM Diamantes sedans and wagons were made here in AU.

It might be another avenue worth looking into for brake parts like rebuild kits, pads, etc

ps. Second gen Diamante like a F41A, F46A, F47A, etc

Stateside we never got an awd version of the magna/diamante, but im unsure how different the front brakes are on the two cars.
I know pads and rotors are the same as a few of the above cars but are the calipers the same also?
I am in need of a front right caliper for a 96 legnum vr4. Is there another car that has the same calipers? seems very similar to outlander/eclipse as well

If this is true then 380 brakes would be a very good upgrade. a 9th gen Galant in the US.

Big twin pots.

I have heard before that the 380 brakes fit.
But can't confirm it myself

I believe 380 brakes were slightly different to Magna/Verada. not to say they wouldnt fit if someone tried, this is purely based off the pads they take.

AWD Magnas had two calliper types, late TJ onwards? (I think) is the same as VR4.
L200/Triton (K7xT) with twin pot callipers at the front were the same as well.

I've got my old VR4 callipers in a box somewhere and was going to look into putting them on my K76T triton... cos racecar :D

380 brakes are far bigger than Magna & Verada, a common upgrade for them.
They are much bigger than factory VR4 brakes. If you can get 380 brakes I would highly recommend them.

Do you actually know for a fact that they work/fit on our cars?

No but they are cheap enough you could try. Mitsubishi brake/hub combos seem to be a bit of a mystery.

I sold my Brembos to a guy with a TE magna and he said they bolted straight up. If this is the case then 380 brakes should too.

As per @BCX perhaps their magna already had TJ/TJ s2 hubs? Meaning that in theory 380 brakes should bolt up to FL hubs...

Definitely can confirm Brembos work on an FWD TJ, have a magna crazy mate.

I want to go to wreckers soon... so if I get time, will pull a 380 calliper off and try on a Magna, and get some measurements.

Mmmm going to a wrecker to get 380 brakes, feels like I am on my Ps again!! If brembos bolt up to a TJ then 380 brakes should work on a FL VR4! Good mod and way more cost effective than brembos.
