I have a 1996 200SX Base Model. I've been reading up on the NX upgrade and found the kit on Courtesy Nissan. The picture displays the calipers, rotors, pads, and a lot of washers, bolts, and other miscellaneous items. Sentra.net says that all you need is the rotors, pads, and calipers if you order from my local Nissan dealership. Would the parts include all the little pieces pictured by C.N.? It also says that it is a bolt-on mod with very little modification. Would anyone know what would need to be done? I live in Hawaii so i dont wanna pay the S&H from an online company. Thanks for any help.

You don't want to pay for shipping and you live in Hawaii?

Then you should probably find them there...
Yes, i plan on ordering the parts from my local Nissan dealership. Thank you very much for that informational link Michael. It pretty much answers all my questions. I appreciate it.

The only thing you have to do is remove the heatshield. Everything bolts right up.

Go to your local auto parts store and get yourself a set of NX2000 rotors and return your old calipers as your cores. The dealer will not take back your old calipers, and most auto parts store don't know the difference. As far as the little bag with all of the little parts, its only the shims and the clips that the pads mount on. The clips will come with most calipers sets. Save yourself some cash and don't go to the dealer.

Just go to Kragen or Pep Boys, it doesn't really matter. I'm not going to guarantee that they wont charge you a core charge, but your chances are really good. At the dealer you wont even have a chance.

What your saying makes sense... A better question would be what the quality differences are between autozone or pep boys rotors and calipers and nissan quality.

Any answers?

The key piece you will need is the torque member. Getting loaded calipers does nothing if this part is not included. From memory, I can only think of Wagner that includes the torque member with it's loaded calipers. I think there were one or two others that include it also. Can't remember their names. Most do not include it, they just put pads in the caliper and call it loaded.

When I got mine from Pep Boys, the Wagner calipers were not listed in their computer. But, the guy said he could get them through his Wagner rep. Since they were not in the computer, no core charge. Of course, YYMV.

usually parts stores sell them rebuild... I'd imagine dealership will only have brand new ones...

The truth is that it really doesn't matter where you get them. Calipers are calipers, before any of you start flaming me for saying that remember that rebuilding a caliper is not a complicated procedure. All it involves is replacing some seals and thats pretty much it. I have Raybestos calipers and they are just fine.

Raybestos calipers also come with the torque member brackets, and no you can't use your stock brackets. And when you call Powerslot you do need to ask for NX rotors. Like I said before, you only need the hardware kit if your calipers dont come with the clips for the pads and if you need shims. I never purchased it because my Raybestos calipers came with the necessary clips and my pads came with shims.

Oh, and loaded calipers means that they come with pads, and I think that the loaded calipers would also come with the brackets. Anyone want to shed some light on this?
