From the RockAuto parts catalog, I cannot select 1984 model Suzuki Swift so I have trouble finding the correct numbers for these parts:

I assume I click on GEO METRO 1989 model in order to order parts, or is this wrong? The parts I need to order are:

1. 2x Brake Pads Front 1429612 OK picture matches 100%
2. 2x Brake Shoes Rear
3. 2x Drum Front
4. 2x Rotor
5. 2xBrake Pad Shim Kit for 1429612
6. 2x Air Bleeding Valve
7. 2x Repair Kit Calipers FWD
8. 2x Bearings for front rotors

Are these the same for GEO METRO 1989 as for my 1984 model 1300cm3 G13A carburetor model?

Thanks

I think you are ok with those parts as I think they are the same for mk1&2 models, but I would try using Chevrolet sprint, 87 or 88 will be pretty similar to your car, and there may be a listing as low as 1985, I think that was the first year of them here in north America.

Look up the parts you need under 1985 Chevrolet Sprint

1989 Geo Metro is next generation car . Rear drums and shoes are different

The Chevy Sprint is a g10? is that solid or ventilated front rotors on the front? pretty certain my g10 Mk1 had solid whereas Marsbars G13A model has ventilated rotors from memory, fairly sure the rear drums were the similar but there was a lip difference on the drum, shoes may be the same, my 8/0 memory is a bit patchy these days sorry, must be old age :lol:

You are probably right on the rotors and front brakes. We never saw a g13 swift/metro here until 89, and indeed anything with 1.3 had vented rotors. Suspect mk1 would use vented as well for the g13?

MK1 Suzuki SA410 Forsa (Cultus) were not badged as Swifts. You should select Suzuki Forsa from 1984-1986 for first MK1 with leaf spring rear suspension, 1987 for coil spring rear suspension, or 1988 as the body style panels changed.

G10 or G10 turbo engines were offered, but some MK1 Forsas imported had the G13 sohc or dohc, though Rockauto might not list them.

Rockauto also displays country flags showing other variant models.

The parts on RockAuto are dirt cheap, so I picked up $100 in spares for brakes, like drum, pads, shoes, rebuilt kit's etc all related to brakes. Brake pad for $10? Costs $80 here.

Unfortunately, the parts showed up from 6 different locations, and a total of $300 in postage.
One item was $4 but $60 in postage. In addition I have to pay 25% VAT on import...
Looks like I just have to order parts as they fail instead of stacking up?

A jet carrier with a US address might also work that collects goods and passes them as one package.

So I dropped to order this time from US, idea was to have spares in hand. Anyway, managed to find the front wheel bearing in England so I ordered bearing kit from there, a wide single bearing with locking, seal and grease. Hope this is the right one. Also bought two bands, as I assume the steel bands on the boots have to come off when you change the bearing... Not an expert, but will be soon... On Rock Auto I only found two single bearings, inner and outer.

The bearing is rumbling pretty bad so hope to change it soon :D

Guess you are lucky in the US to have Rock Auto?

No.
Because of their shipping charges we can always find it more reasonably at another vendor.
You can get it cheaper at Rock Auto if you get a code and plug it in at the appropriate place, or so I'm told.
I've never actually bought anything from them.
North Americans can drive for hours between settlements and the roads can be long, so having reliable bearings is important.
That two piece 107DD front wheel bearing set up is common with the carbureted Chevrolet Sprint 1.0L.
The one piece bearing is used on the Turbo variety.
When you pull apart the front hub, let us know if it is a one piece or two part wheel bearing.

The bearing was SINGLE, quite wide, but two inner pars can be removed.

Thus several parts: Outer part of bearing, wide
Inner part, two halves

Also, there was a spacer ring, do not forget to install it as I did... :roll:

But now I need to repair the drive shafts, see other post.
