Just finalized my Thanksgiving day plans. Looks like its going to be doing the 120k job, plus, and new pads rotors and brake lines on all 4 corners. Woot!!! Yeah ok so im not actually excited. But, it will be nice to have it all done.
Sounds good! Last year I did stainless steel braided brake hoses and no rust Nik-Cad rotors up front. They've held up great.
FYI- I also rebuilt the front calipers, pretty easy - wanted to keep my OEM shells since they are painted with a highlighted Nissan logo. Ordered rebuilt calipers then swapped the pistons, dust boot and seals, returned the auto store shells and pistons for the core exchange refund.
Might want to consider a rebuild or swap - my factory original pistons weren't in great shape, but the caliper bores were still pristine.
I hadnt even thought of rebuilding the calipers. I might add that to my to do list not sure.
I already have the brakes on their way and I'll probably knock them out before Thanksgiving. I knew they were going to need to be replaced soon but randomly yesterday the rear drivers side started to grind right before the car comes to a complete stop.
One nice thing about removing the calipers before replacing the hoses... no fears in pinching the old hoses closed and damaging them since they are getting replaced. Keeps fluid leaks to a minimum while the caliper is serviced.
ps - if do decide to rebuild them be sure to get some piston lube beforehand. I used Wilwood Brake Assembly lube.
My back up light does not work. Many years ago I had the transmission down to do a clutch job. Determining that the switch was bad (jumper the plug) I replaced it. However I replaced it with an aftermarket switch and it does not work. It needs more "throw" in order to engage the circuit. The Z...
Hi everyone, I have converted my 1990 300zx 2+2 to LEDs (mostly). There have been a couple issues since however.
#1 . The red 'Lights' warning light on the dash comes on when braking. I'll try to post a pic.
#2 . The trunk light flashes quickly when closing the driver's side door.
#3 . The...
I have owned my Z for 15+ years, and this is a first time she has left me stranded. Well there was that time the starter fell out of the transmission but I pushed started it and drove it home.
Cold last night. This morning the temp was 10 when I got into the car. Didn't drive it all this...
