The front brakes on my daily driver 99 Sentra GXE are way underpowered for daily beltway abuse, and highway to traffic jam cruising. The rotors, drums and pads were just replaced when I bought the car last May. One of my front rotors is already warped. I did a search for NX2000 brake swap. My car does not have abs. So do I need the Altima porportioning valve? Are the B13 and B14 front brakes ( spindles, hubs, calipers etc.) the same because a lot of swap info referred to the B13. Would a 2oo Sx SER front brake swap be beter, as what are the rotor sizes for the GA16DE, SE-R, and NX 2000? I would only be doing the front swap so would it go like the B13 swap info on the Nismo B13 brake upgrade guide? I want to go with stock brembo rotors and hi perf pads, no slots or holes. Fitted under 15'' SER wheels. Thanks for ANY help.-Chris

all that you need to buy is this:
1. nx2000 1993 front brakes from the ABS car
2. nx2000 1993 front rotors from the ABS car
3. and tourque members.

if u have a 99 then your front bakes are the same as a ser's (b14). 91-97 ga16de has 9.1" x 18mm the ser's(and 98-99 ga's) are 9.8" x 18mm and the nx2ks are 10.1 x 26mm. The price difference is about 10-15 dallors more for loaded nx2k from a part store. Add matching rotors and your done 4 bout 250-300.

Ah, so for the B14 I don't need to swap knuckles or hubs, just calipers (or pads) , and rotors correct? What was this I read about the Altima porportioning valve? I am assuming since I don't have ABS or rear disc I do not need it, but expect slight pedal travel? Thanks for your help, I do appreciate it. :cheers:

Without a doubt, get a set of "loaded" calipers if you decide to go through with the brake upgrade. The loaded calipers come with the torque members. Only other thing to get is the AD22VF rotors and maybe stainless brake lines and good brake fluid for finishing touches. You will not need any type of proportioning valve with this upgrade at all, since the overall brake bias will not be changed that much. Just stronger stopping power and much better fade resistance when you hit the stop pedal.

Loaded means caliper,mount bracket(torque member),and pads. you just have to remove the dust sheild and bolt on. and of couse the rotors. And he's right you don't need the alti master cylinder(proportioning valve) for this.

Alright, I went to try and order my calipers for the NX2000 for my 99 GXE sentra. They said I need to see if it was a US made car or Japanese car. Which caliper do I need the U.S. built one or Japanese built one for the upgrade? And do I really need the ABS calipers if I don't have ABS on my car?

you want the ABS calipers and rotors because they are much larger. as for the jap built or us built as far as i know it dosent matter at all.......they are all the same one is simply cheaper.

Do the abs calipers have the solenoids and sensors for abs, and will it hook up to a non abs system?

You tell them its a Jap car, the NX's were all Japanese I believe. Anyway, I said Japanese and got the right parts.
Search for Part numbers, I posted my Raybestos part numbers, and there are other brand part numbers posted.
Good luck, also search for instructions, I cut and bent my dust shield, others cut it away.
Re: next post, the brakes were on an ABS nx2000 car, but there are no abs parts on my car or the brakes I installed. So no problem.

whats the difference between the abs and non abs brakes off the NX2k?
Its my understanding only the ABS NX2000 had the ad22vf brakes. (or its the easiest way to get the big brakes as all the ABS cars had these brakes)
Yes they are thicker as 1.6 pete says but also larger Diameter.
If you search you will find out more about the stock sizes, from memory the ad22vf's are 10.1 inches
Good Luck......

Slotted Rotors

Mossyperformance has the perfect package. AD22VF calipers, powerslot rotors and axxis metal master brake pads. You can even upgrade to stage 3 with crown stainless break lines and Motul break fluid. I myself am going to get the stage 2 AD22VF calipers, slotted rotors and axxis pads for my 94 B13. Im just wondering with this kit is it bolt on and go? Does anyone have any experience ordering the AD22VF break upgrade from Greg? Just wanna know if theres anything extra I need.
