    Wink Sumitomo Z32 brake caliper swap

    well as i told you when i introduce my self in the forum i'm looking for the correct way to install al 4 calipers & disc brakes from a 300zx z32 on my car.

    Today i had some time to inspect the knuckle and OEM brakes and i discover that the caliper is direct bolt on on the mounting points of the OEM!.

    now i just have to find the correct way to center the disc on the caliper (going to check clio sport rs disc for correct diameter and y hope the center may be align with the caliper) or i will have to us a spacer & longer bolts on the hubs

    After installing fr brakes i will move to the rr brakes to destroy my brain dealing with ideas to install calipers instead of drums.

    i hope this info help you guys.


    best regards.

    That's just great! For a car this light I have not been impressed with the way it stops with the OEM brakes.

    Versaspeed said he used versa rears and had to fab a braket. But did not continue the thread or release a kit forsale.
    Rears maybe more difficult then we imagine. Good luck with this project ill be closely following.
    Cool fact z32 and R32 gtst share the same brakes and rx-7 sumo brake rebuild kit is also the same, so they are probably similar as well just maybe different mounting points.

    Micra with skyline brakes.. Ya, im all 'bout that life

    So you need to move the rotor about 5mm?
    Could you not just offset the caliper with a spacer instead of the rotors?

    Oops, iguess not
