I need advice on running larger calipers and rotors on mV8 equiped Z. I currently have Toyota 4 piston calipers, but I need a caliper that will run a larger, thicker, vented rotor.... Please help!
I am serching for the same info. I found a post that said you can use Toyota Land Cruiser clipers, but did not say what year. They were wide enough to use 300ZX vented rotors! With no mods, except I think you need to have 15" wheels. Anyone know year(s)?
Also part # for mazda backing plate for rear brake conversion, cannot finh the post I copyed it off of. THANK YOU
Alot of us are on here because we are trying to find ways to improve or restore our Z's without paying an arm and a leg. Spending $1500 for brakes at Arizona Z isn't an option for me. I'd rather put some of that money into my house and spend $270 for new front brakes for my Z. That's about how much it'll cost for 300ZX rotors and Toyota 4 piston calipers from the parts store. I'll spend less money and still have added saftey to boot.
For a 72 Z
Can we use the same Master/booster? I currently have 4 piston calipers from pick-up, 14 X 7 wheels 215 60 tires. Does the 1/2 inch offset change the driving/handling?
I would like to convert the rear with 83ZX rotors/calipers.
