So the the difference is .03125mm = 5/16" thicker.
thinner ones being the 2 door

I liked the heavier rotors anyhow, I figure bigger is better and running 35's I want all I can get. My rear drums haven't really worked in years, they will lock up on jackstands and in the air, but under a load, they are pretty much useless. I have wanted to do this for a while, am super excited to tear into it!

I agree. I like the heavier rotors myself. If I had known that the Maxima use a thinner rotor I would have looked for the 300z calipers. Good luck and post your results weather good or bad.

hope to be all good.. I just called and told them to set aside the heavier rotors and I am staying with the 300ZX calipers. The costs are going to be higher, but I want it right. Any word on changing the master cylinder to work with the rear disks? I am going to stay with what I have for now, but I have always heard the pistons for the calipers take more fluid than the pucks for a wheel cylinder....

OK


Got the 84 300zx calipers and pads
went with the 4 door version of the rotors from the Tracker

After finding the 10 X 125 metric bolts to fit, I had to purchase a metric tap to clean the threads, they were pretty bad. I noticed the thickness of the rotors and was concerned that it was to large... Turns out the 4 door rotors won't fit into the calipers. Am taking the rotors back in the morning for the 2 door version.

The photos are large but show the detail pretty well.

And a HUGE thumbs up to Eddies brackets...So far the only thing about this conversion that hasn't given me fits!!!

Weird... I have the 88 brackets which are supposed to be (and look like from the pictures) the same design. Did you use the tool/needle nose pliers to fully compress the piston into the caliper?

Sorry if I gave you bad info on the rotors. It seems that this install has lots of conflicting information and what works for one does not work for others. So I looked at the specs. Guess you I can't trust those either. So my suggestion to anyone who does this swap. Check the rotors to the calipers before you leave the store. Again sorry .

Yeah, it is bottomed out. The problem is the bracket that the caliper bolts/floats on is not wide enough..Headed back to the parts store now! Will report what I come up with!

I read in a bunch of threads and a couple different forums to get the 2dr rotors, so that's what I did.

Yes I'm ordering those off BESRK but don't you need the bracket off the car also or does the BESRK bracket bolt from the housing flange directly to the caliper?
