240sx rear brake calipers identification

Postby larryk240 » Fri Mar 20, 2020 9:37 am

Back around 2011, I purchased a rear disc brake conversion kit for my 1973 240Z, but I can't remember where I bought it from. Supposedly it used the calipers from a 240SX. One of those calipers is now leaking. I got a re-man caliper for a 1998 to 1994 and it doesn't fit. (See picture 1)
I then got a re-man for a 1995 to 1990, and it's closer, but still not right. (pictures 2 & 3)
Any idea as to what I need ??

I think that I may have figured it out. I did a lot of searching at RockAuto and a 1985 -1988 Maxima caliper picture seems to match what I have.

Be wary of buying items based on the illustrations only. Most ads use generic pictures or drawings. Inquire first. To quote Pres. Reagan "Trust, but first verify."

Agreed, but RockAuto has a good return policy.

Yep, 85-88 Maxima. Perfect fit.
