I agree , it just doesn't look right. My rear disk brakes on my AMC20 do not drag at all

Well like I said before thats the cause of the angle the pic is taken I have used levels etc to assure myself the bracket is straight

Do you have to use 1 piece axles when doing this upgrade? I would like to do this upgrade but i am waiting to break my 2 piece axles before i upgrade to the 1 piecers.

I dont see why it wouldn't work. You will mount the bracket in the same place.

Just a quik question. I finally picked up some rear calipers off of a 96 maxima and the only thing I dont like is how long the rubber hose is. The hose off of the 300z looks like it is atleast half of the size in length. Does anybody know if they are compatible?

I have brand new brake lines on my axle and I dont want to have to cut them down to make it work.

Hey Jim, is your braket for your E brake just mounted to the spring plate? Would you happen to have any other pics of that?

And did you have to mod the 300z caliper mounting bracket at all? I made some of the brackets that mount the caliper at the top of the rotor, but I like the idea of retaining the e brake like you did and gravity bleeding the brakes. I'm going to pick up some calipers this weekend and was wondering if I should snag those brackets too.
