Did my z32 brake conversion. I have a 1996 gloria, with the vq30det. I only needed to add one tiny washer for spacing, I’m pleased. My heat Shields were already gone, and I used the 240 conversion lines. I did not have to trim bolts, or sleeves, or anything. I used the 30mm aluminum calipers. The factory calipers are so much smaller! I’ll do the rears eventually, the rotors back there are new from the PO in Japan.

Additional Notes:

  • You can do this with the g35 brembo which is a straight bolt in ,you do need shorter bolt for the caliper

Installation Instructions

View PDF Version

Each kit comes with the following:

  • Four M14x45mm long bolts (Note: these bolts will stick out beyond the adapter to mount M14x1.5mm nuts if desired [recommended].)
  • Four M14x55mm long bolts
  • Four washers (if nuts are being used with the kit)
  • A pair of Grade 6 aluminum calipers

Tools you will need:

  • 22MM sized socket or wrench
  • A fine file or fine burr drill bit (if modification required)
  • Torque wrench

STEP 1

Due to casting variation of the Akebono calipers, some slight modification may be required to the adapter in order for it to clear the body of the caliper.

Using your 55mm long bolts, thread the adapters to your Akebono caliper until seated. The adapter is mounted to the caliper with the bottom of the “L” shape of the adapter oriented to towards the bleeder while the machined notch sits towards the caliper.

Verify that the notched portion clears the body of the caliper. If it does not, mark the area of contact and remove the appropriate amount of material until cleared. (Take away about 1-2mm of material at a time at approximately a 45-degree angle to match the caliper body angle. Re-mount to verify clearance. Repeat if necessary).

STEP 2

Mount your adapter to your spindle. The adapter sits outside of the spindle mounting holes while the 45mm long bolts mount from the inside of the spindle towards the body of the car. Hand thread one 45mm long bolt by only a couple of rotations. Take your other 45mm bolt and repeat for the other mounting point while extending the adapter away from the spindle. This will allow for extra pitch and play to align your second bolt to the threads of the adapter.

STEP 3

Once both bolts are comfortably thread-started into the adapter, fully thread both bolts through and tighten to OEM specifications.

NOTE: DO NOT FORCE BOLTS ONTO STARTING THREADS OF THE ADAPTER! This may result in damage or cross-threading to the aluminum adapter.

Your bracket will look like this mounted to the vehicle:

STEP 4

Repeat all steps to the opposite side of your car. Mount your Akebono calipers using the supplied 55mm long bolts. Tighten to OEM specifications. NOTE: Part of the dust shield will need to be trimmed in order for the caliper to be mounted. Use metal shears or a cut-off wheel with the appropriate tool to complete this step.

STEP 5

Double-check all fasteners for tightness prior to driving your vehicle. Test drive and enjoy!

These brackets will guarantee the proper fitment of Akebono calipers on your Maxima or Altima. Say goodbye to pad overhang and knocking off wheel weights when running your 18s!

The kits will be made out of 6061 high-strength aluminum. I am currently in talks with the machinist to see if I can do a separate run of steel brackets though. I was quoted $45 USD more (subject to change).

The aluminum kits will cost $225 plus shipping and PayPal fees. ($50.00 Deposit Required)

Important Note: These brackets for only for the front calipers. The rear Akebono calipers are plug-n-play but only for the 04+ Maximas/ 05+ SE-R Altimas.

Improvements (Over Previous Brackets):

  • Mounting holes to the knuckles have been shifted to the correct spots to fix the pad overhang problem.
  • A notch has been made to clear the curvature of the caliper as it was not allowing it to seat on the bracket properly.
  • The caliper mounting holes were oversized. This is also corrected.
