hi i want to upgrade my brakes. i'd like to put vented discs on the front
and discs on the rear. it's not like 70 stock horses need more whoa,
but i wanna put on some 15 or 16 inch wheels. i assume that someone
has already done this, so what car is a good donor ? 86 to 96 maxima?
thanks in advance stenbots

hi again; well, no takers. i looked at an '83 280 at a wrecking yard. they have vented front rotors. have no idea if they bolt on like the pulsar/sentra's do? maybe, like a honda or toyata front spindle/hub transplant? anyone???? how about the next gen '87 and up sentra/pulsar ?? while we're at it, how about a rear sway bar?

anywho, bought some new wheels 16 x 7 motegi MR7 wheels. $250 for all 4 rims and 2 pretty good Kuhmo extas 205 40 16 the front fits okay,but the rear are gonna need surgery to clear the shock and pregnant spring hump.
so in the spring i'm gonna be driving the mazda truck and doing some rearranging of the rear shock tower. its rusty as hell and ive had to brace up both sides. i'm planning on some door sill bracing too while ive got it all up in the air. unless i win the lottery first. ha ha i'd buy a small house with a 3 car garage. later

brake update

well, like billy idol i'm dancin w/myself. have been working on the linkage to adapt the carb from early 80's datsun truck. piece of cake. made a bracket out of some angle iron and drilled 4 holes to stretch to reach the throttle cable that was floating in midair. probably needs a carb kit and serious cleaning, but im gonna try it anyway. rear tire clearance surgery has been put off while im driving the car. got tired of the ridiculous oil burning that the truck does. later
