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
