300zx brake clearance questions

I own a 1992 240sx hb that is currently running 17x7 +42 with 5mm spacers all around.And it has Tein HE suspension too. Its ****ty, i know. But i was wondering if the z32 brake swap would fit. Even if it were just the 26mm alum calipers. I'd prefer the 30mm iron ones though. Would i need to run extended studs and spacers, and if so about how big?

oh and the rims look like this:

All suggestions are appreciated.

personally, if i was gonna go z32 brakes id save up and do brakes, 5 lug, rims/tires all at the same time. but if youre not tracking the car, i dont see why youd need z32 brakes in the first place. pads and ss lines is a decent setup for most drivers

the 26mm will fit under some of the stock 240 wheels. the 30mm will fit under those same wheels with only a 5mm spacer. so if you are runnin those 17s, i dont see why your 5mm spacers wouldnt do the trick in clearing the iron calipers. If you find that they dont, just go with a 10mm spacer and some nismo extended studs.
