Thanks to Michael for posting this information. For approx. $300 bucks, you can have a front Akebono BBK on your 7thgen Maxima. This is for only the Front BBK ONLY. You can do the rear setup as well inexpensively.

This is applicable to other Maxima’s as long as you have the correct brackets. The 7thgen/8thgen Maxima DOES NOT require brackets. Also a direct fit for the newer Altima’s (2010 Model).

The initial price will be over $300 because of the core charges. Once you return your old calipers, you will get  that credit back. The core charge for each caliper at Autozone is $65.00. Also, keep in mind that you can save even more money if you have Autozone rewards.

You also have the option to paint or powdercoat the calipers. Of course this will increase the pricing. However, many members just buy a can of high-temp caliper paint and call it a day.

Install Information:

Dust shield has to be trimmed, 2 shorter banjo bolts (w/crush washers), and larger 13.9 inch rotors is all you need. While you’re doing all that you can upgrade brake lines but the factory ones will work and you will see a difference in stopping power.

Everything you need for Install:

Core Information:

So many of you are wondering, “can I return mystock OEM calipers in exchange for the BBK calipers”? The answer is YES.

Of course, you can’t exchange an alternator as a core for brakes. But brakes to brakes, the core is acceptable from a recycling perspective. Below is more clarity on the core charge.

A “Core Charge” is similar to the deposit you might pay for a can or bottle of soda. In many states, to promote recycling, you are charged a deposit when you purchase a can of soda and you receive your deposit back when you return the empty can. Many automotive parts have a Core Charge, or Core Price, that works the same way as a soda can deposit.

Here’s how the Core Charge works:

  • The part you are purchasing contains a component that is recyclable
  • The Core Charge deposit is charged at the time of purchase
  • When the recyclable component from your old part is returned to us, the charge is refunded to you.

Returning the core allows parts to be remanufactured / recycled. Bringing back your core helps save our environment by keeping approximately 54,000 tons of cores out of landfills annually!

If you’re up for a CVT transmission fluid drain/refill, it is also a good idea to change the CVT transmission oil filter. Often times, if you go to the dealer and ask them to change the CVT oil filter….they will look at you like you’re crazy.  Stay calm, the oil filter does EXIST! It is very easy to change and swap while you do your drain/refill. 

Most dealerships are not aware of this filter replacement because Nissan does not call for this maintenance change in any of their maintenance intervals. So to their credit, it’s not their fault that they are unaware. However, for $10 bucks this is something you can do yourself or dealer as part of your transmission fluid drain/refill.

Part Number: 31726-1XE0A
Part Name: FILTER ASSY OIL
Price: $9.00-10.00

It is located behind the splash shield in the driver’s side wheel well. It’s held by a 10 MM bolt and two hose clamps. Simple enough!

The factory pipe is about 1″ thick after the flex pipe section. The tight u-bend is significantly more restrictive than the larger bend, and the diameter of the pipe is much more consistent.  When ordering, you will need to get the gaskets, either from them or a parts store.

You will also need to go to the hardware store and pick up the following:

  • 2x 10M-1.25 x30mm
  • 2x 10M-1.25 nut
  • 2x 10M lock washer

The factory has studs to the mid pipe, while the RL pipe just has holes.
