  • Where to get Z32 rear calipers?

    I have 26mm Z32 brakes up front and want to switch to Z32 rear brakes. I'm trying to figure out where to get the calipers from (I need them within about two weeks). Where did you guys get yours: junkyard, Autozone, Nissan dealer, etc? Local Autozone sells A1 Cardone but they are out of stock. Rock Auto has some but they are all rebuilt as well. Any issues with rebuilt? I need them for track days and don't want any problems. Thanks in advance for any information.

    I bought mine used off a forum guy somewhere...

    I haven't had a problem with parts store used calipers as long as they're in good shape. i.e. open the box and make sure they don't look like they've been dragged down a gravel road. also make sure the mounting ears aren't bent on them- just like them up with a ruler or something. I had one that was bent one time.

      Rebuilt is as good as new...as long as the caliper isn't damaged physically.

      While we're on the subject of z32 rears...does anyone know where I can get a new set of rear e-brake hardware for the z32 e-brake? I do new/rebuilt everything on my car, and Nissan doesn't sell the hardware kit anymore. I can get the backing plates, but not the hardware.

          Alright, I'll get used calipers. Also, I'm not interested it the Z32 parking brake so is it true that I won't need the Z32 backing plate and knuckle?

            well...if you are cool without a dust shield then no you won't need the backing plate, but I would run it to avoid potential pad drag the knuckle is not a concern, the hardware will bolt to any s-chassis knuckle,

            I will assume you are already 5-lug as required for the rotor,

              You can always drill them 4-lug.
