Wish I could say the same for the ones I got off eBay... in the process of fixing the caliper holes right now. Hopefully the axel side is better.

If only I had known BESRK was making them sooner.

Maxima


300zx
I have the 300zx calipers. You have to watch the years. There are some differences. I went through 3 different versions until I matched up a new driver side for my existing passenger side.

I found that the 4-door Tracker rotors work with the early 300zx calipers. (4 door rotors are thicker and vented.) I was using the 2 door version, but as they wore, there was enough room for the brake pad to slip out.

Hey CJ7ROB, could you post up a quick list of all the parts you used for this and maybe where you got them. And what is everyone doing about emergency brakes.
Thanks

Here is an excellent write-up by sherlocktk on how to use the stock emergency brake cable on the 300Z calipers. This is how I plan to hook them up. I am hoping to finish my installation up next week and them I can some post some pictures and let you know if I run into any issues.

Is there a reason that you have your calipers mounted toward the front of the Jeep? Most of the other installations I have seen have the calipers mounted angled toward the rear of the Jeep.

Ordered brackets, got rotors.... ordered 300ZX calipers, but told the guy I may return them ( I order loads of parts, they said no problem) I checked the Maxima calipers and they were 45 dollars cheaper each. Is their a huge difference between the two? I am going to compare them side by side tomorrow, but if anyone has info on this, please let me know!! Also, where the backing plate gets ground down, can you still use those bolts, or do you have to replace them with longer bolts? ( I assume you use three of the original bolts through the new bracket....)

The only difference is the rotor you use. If wou go with the 300 calipers you will need the thicker tracker 4 door rotors. The maxima calipers will use the thiner tracker 2 doors rotors.
