Hey guys/ gals, I have a 90 coupe and was wondering what calipers will fit on it.What I mean is will a 92`s fit or 89 or 91 etc. My rear left is completely gone and the new ones are really expensive, so i`m looking at used. Any help would be great.

I think all the brakes were the same through out the S13 series. The only exceptions, I know for a fact, were the abs front brakes which are slightly larger. I got to find that one out the hard way.

S13 rear calipers

Nissan only made one rear single piston caliper, and they're the same on all S13's. Try finding one on EBay. People who do Sumitomo brake swaps often dump the single piston calipers for cheap, and I've even seen dual-piston set-ups for like $100. (Don't tell anyone, but I got the full 4-piston set up for $100.)

hey i've been looking around and i've seen 30mm z32 brake calipers w/redrilled rotors to fit 4 lug s13s. i was just wondering if anyone knew what was involved in doing such a conversion. would it be a direct install? if not, what modifications would be involved? would i need a z32 master cylinder? would everything fit perfectly given i have the rims to clear such brakes?

any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance.

I bought 5mm spacers on ebay for $12 and they clear the 30mm z32 brakes fine with the 7 spoke wheels.

Go visit www.pdm-racing.com

As for the calipers... NO the S13 was NOT the same size in front or rears on any of the models.
The ABS and HiCAS models have bigger Calipers for the needed surface area of the pads... So BE Cautious :)

i know it was not the same size

as i understood so far to be able to do Z32 brake conversion i understood i'll need
17" aloys/weels...
300ZX calipers , brake disck and master cilinder
some lines (brake fluid lines)
and do some modification to the hand brake cable


and i asked if this conversion can be done on the 200SX RS13 (no abs no hicas) recently my friend bought an 200SX identical as mine only he has abs, and the brake disck... are the same and it is also a 4 lugs

why not just leave the stock rear brakes? installing z32 brakes in the rear is a bit complicated from what i know.

also, you could just get the z32 brakes for the front, and then redrill the rotors so that they fit your 4 lug. and then just get a 300zx master cylinder and conversion brake lines. i don't think you need a proportioning valve....

Considering that you speak of a 200sx and not the 240sx. It is a whole different breed on safety issues. The Silvia/200sx with the CA18 or SR20 has lighter sheet metal and the braking system is standard on all S13's up to 94. The ABS is supposed to have bigger Rotors, Calipers and Pads. YET, that is not totally true if the sales area did not require it to be sold. Such as eastern Europe and Northwest territories.
So you would be correct. In the U.S. and U.S. territories and sanctions, the SAFETY code has to be adhered to. Which means Larger size for ABS and heavier sheet metal, glass, etc...
