The S14 front brakes will fit if the rears do.

Bri brings upon a good point, if the rears fit, the fronts should as well. Now if for some odd and crazy reason they don't. You can get them re-drilled by a machine shop, and then you get the extra holes welded shut, and you can't just add one hole to make them fit, you have to drill four new ones, utilize one of the existing holes and drill 4 new ones, then the extra three that won't be used, weld 'em shut. That's what you have to do to change the Z32 rotors to 4 lug...

You can change the Brake Master Cylinder (BMC) to a Z32. But whether you want to our not is up to you. Most people say that they like the feel of the Z32 BMC better than that of the stock 240sx's BMC, I haven't had a chance to drive a 240 w/ a Z32 BMC so I couldn't tell you out of experience. If I were you, I probably would change it over.

There is little difference between the 15/16", 1", and 17/16" Z32 M/C's. In fact, it's hard to tell which your buying unless you can get up close and personal to it. Junk yards often just sell them as "300ZX master cylinder." The bottom line is, all three of them kick ass. And no, don't use the 300ZX brake booster. The 300ZX MC will fit into the 240SX brake booster, then you just attach the reservoir and lines. The only tricky part is if your 240SX has ABS, the brake lines will need to be bent a little bit to fit the Z32 M/C.

cusco or suspension techniques???SWAY BARS?

lol...hey guys i have a question im going for a street setup u know like highway racing and drag and maybe a little drift. IS SPL THE BEST COMPANY TO GET ME REAR SUBFRAME BUSHINGS FROM FOR WHAT I WONNA DO I KNOW OTHER COMPANYS SELL THEM BUT THE OTHER COMPANYS ARE DRIFT COMPANYS AND I HAVENT HEARD ANYTHING FROM >PHASE 2 MOTORTREND<

also i wanted some sway bars cause like i said im changing everything that has to do with the suspension.I WANTED SOME CUSCO SWAY BARS BUT I STILL DON'T KNOW IF I SHOULD GET THEM IN ADJUSTABLE OR NON ADJUSTABLE OR IN WHAT SIZES IF ADJUSTABLE. i talked to a guy in 240sxmotoring.com and this is what he told me atleast a 25mm-30mm for the front...I would go with anything for the rear...like 15mm-19mm

its up to you for non or adjustable....for what you are doing, it makes no difference if you have adjustable or not. I would do None adjustable.


because i told him i wanted to do a street setup .....HIGHWAY RACING,RIDING TWISTYIES JUST A REAL HUGGING MACHINE and drag.
