sorry to rebump an old thread, but I am now in the works of getting a brake upgrade for my build. From what I am reading Aluminum > steel (because weight and daily driving will never stress the limits of an aluminum set up) 26mm > 30mm due to 4 mm of extra clearance. Front easier to fit then rear but both front and rear will work. Is this still the consensus?

With this in mind is it a good upgrade to do this in steps IE do the fronts then worry about the rears? With just the fronts will you notice a nice change in stopping power?

Thanks

aluminum 26's would probably work fine for street driving, and you wouldn't do z32 rears unless you already did the fronts.

do they make aluminum 26mm calipers? besides the 30mm ones?

1990 na calipers are 26mm alum.GTR has steal 30mm atleast r32's. I got ever caliper there is on the shelf let me know what you need.

And as for all this 4mm shit. Split that in half it bigger on both sides. And actually I dont think there is a size difference. It's gap size for the rotor thats different.


If MM's matter just grind of nissan. Should anyways.

yeah the co,pany who makes mine use all the dot stuff and do automotive/truck lines all the time. Mine are also diff length in the rear for lowered cars.

how much are the ebay ones? The links are dead.

I used to runs13 to z32 conversion lines but the thing is the nissan lines on the female end are shallow. So on the body side youd end up with only a few threads which seemed kinda sketch to me. The oyota ends are deep as hell and make me feel a lot better :)

this is where i got all my z brakes info from years ago
only thing that incorrect on here is that on the master cylinders, only nabco ones stamp the size on the MC, i have a tokico one with the same large piston, it just isnt stamped

because they aren't %100 iron. When it's mixed with carbon and other various elements it becomes stronger and therefore becomes steel!

Actually the more carbon in the mixture is when steel becomes iron.

Ferrous alloys are made up of predominantly iron and carbon. The amount of carbon determines whether the alloy is an "iron" or a steel. Iron contains greater than 2% carbon, and steel contains less than 2% carbon.

Then you get into things like high carbon medium carbon and low carbon steel. Low carbon contains less than 0.20%. Medium carbon contains between 0.20% and 0.50%. High carbon contains more than 0.50%.

Brake rotors are made from iron and calipers are either iron or aluminum.

So to do z32 rears you need torer-v rotors or can you use IS300 rotors?

I got my Z32 front brakes but is any one making the brackets for the rears I got accesss to a set of jzx90 rear rotors. just curous what is needed to mount the z32 rear calipers to clear work with the rotor. I would like to do this all when I swap in my new suspension.

I am about to order my front brackets and hub centric rings just need to sort out the rears.
