I've just noticed whilst trying to figure out why my Samurai pulls so hard to the right when braking, that it has two different front calipers, 1x Aisin and 1x Lucas.
Have they all got different calipers on the front and is this likely to be a factor in the pulling problem?

I've replaced the brake hose, checked that the piston moves and that the sliders slide freely and the son of a preacherman still pulls hard to the right!  Evil or Very Mad

They should have matching calipers, but not sure if it would make it pull with the calipers being different but there is a good chance I would of thought Shocked

Yar that's what I thought. I'm sure it would be best to have two of the same.

Well here's the calipers fitted to the front of my Samurai.

Ok here's my two different calipers which I think may be causing unequal braking.

Which is the correct one and what is the other off of?
Are the calipers from the 410 / 413 / Samurai etc interchangeable, as in, can I get two calipers from a 410 for instance, and fit them on my Samurai?

Near side front (passenger) Lucas caliper


Off side front (driver) Aisin caliper
