    the disc (and hub) will go on an xt130 strut.

    but the caliper wont. theres another toyota caliper that will, but you still need to do some machining.

    can you get the struts/steering arm the brakes came off ? you can use them with your top mounts and put them in your 70 (if there the same as ae86)

    Ra60 struts give you some neg camber but some other struts that fit can give you pos camber but i cant remember the model.

    ^^ Nope, RA60 struts (along with all other A6 celicas) give positive camber in an AE86 or E7. Can be negated by bending the struts or Sigma arms. I've heard of some rare Cressidas or Crestas which might have a suitable strut, but haven't seen the myself.

    Answering the original question, there is no easy way to fit those brakes. Slydar's suggestion is the best IMHO. Search Toymods for "$250 vented brake upgrade" or somethign similar. All spelt out there.

    Weird, RA60 definitely give positive camber, but also they don't bolt up to AE86 steering arms (slightly different bolt spacing). I'm guessing you had struts from something else. Plus I don't know of any strut swaps to give -ve camber in an AE86. So I'd suspect the control arms had been changed/modded.
