Basic tools.. hub socket. metrick socket set and wrenches.

The brakes are from a z32 91-96 300zx.

Part list.
Try to get all parts from the same donor vehicle.

z32 brake calipers,
z32 brake rotors.
SPL> ebay stainless steel braided conversion brake lines.

Note: For those s14 4 lug. just take the z32 rotos and have a machine shop drill them to your 4 lug bolt pattern.

If you want to have a brake dust shield just grind off the s14 one and bend it backwards until the rotor does not hit it.

Also you need to grind off part of the dust shield were the caliper will go in order to fit.

Make sure you install the caliper with the bleeder pointing up.

clean all parts and make sure to torque everything using the FSM specs.

Bleed the brake system using your favorite method until you see no evidence of air. bubbles, white foam etc..

I also got the matching brake master cylinder wish is bigger than the s14s for better brake pedal feel.

Everything fits except for one of the brake lines at the master cylinder. You need to get an adapter fitting in order to make it bolt on. DON'T BUY THE ONE OFF EBAY IT DOES NOT WORK. I REPEAT. IT DOES NOT WORK FOR S14.

Take the z32 master cylinder and one of your s14 steel brake line to your favorite parst store and try to find an adapter fitting that will make it work.


Impressions.. 8 pistons of barking power in the front feels awesome and the car now really stops. amazing!. next will be a hydraulic e-brake.

good luck.
