heres a few pics i only have the driver side done







i have a narrow track with no lift so it looks like i may run into some Clarence issues






also using the maxima caliber you can use a 3/8 hard line like the factory instead of the maxima soft line

Looks good. As for the clearance issue, can you rotate the bracket so the caliper is on the back of the rotor not the top?

It looks like you DO have the caliper on the rear/back side. Where is your jack? (looks like its on the axle when you were looking at clearance) On the axle or leaf spring? Does it give you any more clearance from the FRAME when the wheel is on its not jacked up? I'm sure youve thought of that, but just in case.....I'm doing the same swap right now, haven't put the axle back under the jeep but I'm hoping I don't run in to clearance issues. Good luck.

I've got the DXF files if anyone needs them. I can also do those brackets for anyone who needs them.. figure $20 per set and $5 shipping in a Flat Rate Box.. cut from 3/8". PM if interested..
I'm interested in buying a set if you can still makes these. I'm putting maximum brakes and rotors on an AMC 20 in a 72 Gremlin. Let me know. thank you

Hit me up via PM if interested.. still the same price.. $25 shipped. Think I've got about 5-6 sets on the shelf..


Edit: I cut these brackets regularly. I try to keep a half dozen sets or so laying around.

Also, if anyone is doing a one-off mix/match setup, feel free to hit me up for custom brackets. You'd need to supply the DXF File (if you have access to CAD).. or send me an accurate template from stiff cardboard/MDF/1/4" plywood..etc. Just make sure it's accurate. What you send me in cardboard, is what I send you back in 3/8" steel plate

I would imagine most flat caliper brackets can be done for about $20-$25 per set.. and ship via Flat Rate Box for $5-$10.. depending on size of brackets.

I just ordered the brackets from BESRK. Any benefit of one of these sets of calipers over the other? Any performance differences between the 300Zx and Maxima calipers? Thanks

I hear all the good info on the swap to discs. but why discs?
Drums work fine? They use them on most heavy dudty trucks pickups and such? discs are a bit simpler and such but will you actually notice the stopping improvment ?

Well, if you ever do any wheeling in someplace like here in Florida, you'll find that you're often in mud & dirty water. This junk packs up drum brakes fairly quickly, rendering them useless.

Discs, on the other hand are more easily cleaned & therefore functional.

Also guys with more power and bigger than 35" tires, discs help to stop quicker. What E-brake part# are you guys going with #BC93043 or #C94740 or it doesn't matter? thx

The plates that Eddie (BESRK) makes are sweet..Well worth the $25 for them. They line right up with the calipers..I may have it on backwards, not sure until I'm ready to put them on.
