Brackets for Z32 brakes on a S30

Recommended Posts

I'm believe you only have to align the seam on the caliper with the center of the rotor. The pads can easily be off center. It looks like you are close enough.

 

Right, if the pads are aligned correctly and the pistons are evenly compressed then the seam of the caliper should match the offset between the pads but its easier to just look at the seam. I wonder if my car got 280Z hubs at some point in its life or if it's in the calipers. Either way it was a simple install with the adapters.

I just competed this conversion on my 260Z with these brackets and oddly found that I actually needed to add 7mm of spacing between the bracket and the strut to centre the caliper on the rotor. See pic (spacer is blue).

 

Not a big deal and all is now good, but just interesting that this has not been described by anyone above. I just thought I should mention it here in case anyone else encounters this.

 

It is probably the rotor hat thickness as the rotor seems to be very close to the strut.

Looks like there are more folks interested in the Z32 bracket. If we can get 10 orders I'll run another order. The price is still the same $185 shipped and includes the adapters, bolts and washers.

 

I'll up date this with the list of buyers:

 

1. Jcurtis

2. Tim.d

3. CBB

4. Culp 45

5. zilvia_gt 

6. Equizyme 

7. TRD_240z

8. datsun130y

 Count me in.

I missed the first one so want to jump on this buy, but has anyone machined the Odyssey rotors to 5x114.3? Wondering if the existing holes interfere.

I have them installed on my Z with the rotors. Unfortunately I didn't take a picture of the rotor by itself. Here are a few pictures of it installed.

So from some digging it looks like r33 4 lug rotors will fit with no modification. Either way count me in for a set.

If that's true then it makes it a lot easier set up. You're added to the list.

I’m interested in jumping in on this. I have the 5 lug hubs from T3, what are folks doing with this combo? Still going with odessey?

I think  JoeK used a 5 lug hub with the brackets. He posted pictures of his set up a couple pages back.  Since we have 8 people signed up I'll start taking payments. My paypal is [email protected] and please make sure you put your screen name on the payment and send as a gift or add the 3% paypal charges.  I'll update the post to ensure everyone is counted. Thanks

Payment sent. Thanks Arif. I’ll just have to find a solution to that rotors here. I may take a stab at z32 rotors since I have some around with my hubs

Looks like r33 rotors are only good for the rear swap. I'm looking into getting some rotors made custom for this swap. If there's any interest I will try to do a group buy.

Payment also sent. Thanks Arif.

I would be interested in this for a 5 lug set up (T3 hubs)- pending price of course.
