Installation of Infiniti G35 2004 / Nissan 350Z 2003-2009 4-Piston calipers on 1995-2008 Nissan Maxima (also fits Infiniti I35, Altima SE-R). They are 100% direct bolt-on with no custom brackets needed. There is no pad overhang. Overall, solid cost efficient setup.
This setup using the 6thgen 12.6″ which are easy to find and low cost. Additionally, no need for any custom brackets which is awesome. It’s almost like factory OEM.
- 1995-1999: You will need to drill to expand the mounting holes either on the hub or caliper so they will accept the larger bolts. See this post here: https://www.my4dsc.com/how-to-install-2002-2003-5thgen-brakes-on-4thgen-maxima/
- 2000-2003: For the 5thgen, you just need the calipers guides, rotors and pads. The existing mounting bolts, stock brake lines and banjo bolt work just fine. If you have SS lines, you will need the banjo bolt.
- 2004-2008: Similar to 5thgen, except that you don’t need to purchase the rotors since you can use your existing ones.

This is the reason you need the guides. Otherwise pads will shift like the below:
