I hate to ask, but...

I searched, and nothing really useful came up, but since one of my brake calipers self destructed (bolt stripped itself out while braking), I need a new caliper. I can get ahold of 300zx, j30 or q45 brakes... but Im not sure if any of these will clear stock wheels. Is there any good setup that WILL clear stock alloys?

i believe brian er...motegineon has a set of Q45 calipers, they are 90% as good as Z32 brakes, the only major drawback is the pad availablity. you should PM him or i suppose he will chime in on this thread.

If you have 16" stockers, then the 26mm 300zx caliper will fit. The 30mm 300zx caliper will not though.

there 15s though, its an s13. The only mods that need to be done for j30s, well not really a mod but you wont have a dust sheild. well and you will need to drill your rotors to four lug...if your not 5.

Yup. I think the 26mm will fit, I saw a thread on zilvia where they did some sort of 300zx conversion on an s13 with stockers and it cleared. Wasnt a whole lot of room left, but it was functional.

q45 calipers will clear a 15. I have some q45's that i picked up (not installed yet). I test mounted them one day when i had the wheel off and they have probably 2 inches of gap between the wheel. it makes the calipers look more beast
