yes ive read the warning, and this is all i could find in the search.
has anyone actually done a front and rear r32 caliper conversion for the 240z? using only 240z parts not machined 260z hubs?? im looking in doing this for my 240z cause the drums dont look nice, also i want stopping power aswell. i have considered 280zx rear brakes but i rather something beter. i have message SWR and now awaiting a reply. if anyone has done this conversion please PM or post back.

SWR do a conversion (had it done on my 240K) that uses the calipers and banksia brake setup for a commodore/falcon (can't remember which), and Techno toy tuning in the states sells a new rear upright that allows you to use the complete skyline/300zx rear end (including hubs, brakes etc).. i am going to eventually go with that

wat steps are involved to making it work?
wats the mim rim size will fit?

R33GTS-T calipers (almost identical to R32 GTR). DBA 326x30 2-piece discs. Custom hats. Custom mounts. 17 inch wheels.
Wheel size will depend on the size of the disc you go for. 16's are a perfect fit if using the same size disc as a GTR. I wouldn't go smaller than 15's or the disc you need to fit in the rims will be too small to work properly with the calipers.

i.e the depth of the disc mounting faces is different between the two models.

I have a R32 gts-t and I'm currently using a bracket as described to space the caliper out about 11mm from center with the same offset as stock to allow for R33 GTR disks. Ive almost finished parting out my R32 so I can build up a 260z 2+2 I just purchased. I'm thinking I should keep the brakes and was just told that I should also keep the rear shafts so I can convert to using the R32 handbrake.
Has anyone got an example of a hub converting bracket to do this?

However the brackets are not cheap. I made my own internal drum setup using new parts from different cars - would I do it again? No I would just purchase these brackets from Stewart Wilkins - would have easier and cheaper than all the R&D for one off my setup.
