300 ZX Brake Swap

This is the best site i've found for doing the 300ZX brake swap, step by step with pics. I was gonna copy and past it, however we'd have to reference all the pics. Definately a great help.

Found Another one, hope this helps! Makes me want 300zx brakes, I loved how they felt on my buddies s13, I HATE my stock s13 brakes. Hopefully the brembo rotors and axxis pads will help.

how often do you need to change the stock calipers? how do you know if they've gone bad? i read on the midas site that if you have screetching, the calipers may have gone bad... any input?

what is the minimum rim size can you go with? how well do the zx wheels fit? I plan to drill the front rotor to make them 4 lug.

Thanks,
Sid
