I've got a friend that's looking to upgrade to 300ZX Calipers/Rotors and 5 Lug Hubs on his S14...He already bought the 5 Conversion Hubs to bolt into his stock spindles and he just purchased 300ZX TT Front Rotors....now he needs to get the 300ZX TT Front calipers and I told him that he would probably need the caliper brackets as well, but he wasn't sure. Does anyone on here know if he will need the brackets and if they will bolt to his stock spindles? Also are there any other parts he will need?

Also....does anyone around here do caliper rebuilds? I was thinking it may be best for him to buy junkyard calipers and then before he gets them rebuilt he can have them powdered.

Thanks for the help guys!

I believe they sell swap brackets for those callers on S14s, I'm sure someone with them will chime in.


As far as rebuilding them, there's nothing to it. Don't be scared.

I guess I've never looked into it, but I can't imagine it being hard at all....The seals probably aren't too expensive from the dealer I'd assume...

You should be able to find aftermarket kits for rebuilding too... might be cheaper.
