The Easiest Front Brake Upgrade Ever!
Posted 14 September 2005 - 09:06 PM
Toyota Hilux/Landcruiser caliper (4 spot, LN106/HZJ75).
?93 onwards Bluebird Rotor (Vented, 280mm Dia). Part no. DBA 903
All you need to do it drill out the threaded mounting holes in the rotor (where presumably the Bluebird hub attaches) as the PCD is the same for the 240Z hub mounting pattern. Next the centre hole needs to be opened up enough (on a Lathe) to allow the Zed hub to slide through. Then simply bolt on the Zed hub, and then bolt it onto the stub axel.
The Hilux caliper then bolts straight onto the Zeds caliper mounts.
There is NO shimming required to get the caliper in the right position (so I?ve been told).
It?s as easy as that!
If there are any issues with this conversion, please let me know & I will investigate further...

how much do those calipers cost and where are they available?

Also you may have to upgrade to 15" rims...

Also with the wheels, 15' and above, plus I have had trouble with some wheels that the offset is right but on the back of the face, it isnt spaced from the hub and hits the caliper.

273mm, 20mm thick and 43mm hat height 76mm centre. Again the centre will need to be enlarged. The other option is the 300zx Z31 non turbo rotor, same hole, and bolt PCD you just need a spacer to get the offset right (this is what I am using) The specs for these are
DBA 608 274mm 22mm thick and 35.5mm hat height with 81mm centre
Stock 240z is 271mm 12.7mm thick (solid) 52mm hat and 81mm centre
260z is 271mm, 12.7mm 43.5mm hat and 81mm centre
The bluebird rotor mentioned above is
280mm, 22mm, 49.2mm hat and 68mm centre
Hope this info helps

If they are the non vented type of calipers. The difference between the 240z and 260z is the hub offset so the rotor is different to give the same over all rotor setup ie 240z and 260z calipers are the same = in the same place. Does this make sence.
If thats the case will the hilux calipers fit a 74 260 with solid stock dimension rotors?

Im running s2 280zx mags or my 240z-- so it prob wouldnt fit anyway but if I do a wheel upgrade the std brakes will look a little smallish...

It's been noted by others that the Bluebird rotor isn't a straight bolt up, & I don't recommend it anymore.
Your better off using the the S13 SR20det rotor as it is of a larger Dia. anyway.
Apart from getting the centre hub hole machined out, you also need to re drill the hub mounting holes to a new PCD.
Machining shouldn't be any more than $50.
Best I lock this thread...
