Loaded calipers from an NX2K (Loaded means it's assembled with pads and has the torque member you will need installed and ready to bolt up) and NX2K rotors.

Just swap the rotors, and loaded calipers.

Done.

Makes a huge difference in braking.

Goodridge makes them. I think they're around $130 from JC Whitney.

Ok this may be a little ignorant as I do not Have an NX and dont know what they came with, but when looking for rotors, I come across those for cars with ABS and without. Is there a specific year and piece that I need to go with to make sure the rotors I end up with arent exactly like what I have on my 200?

Call Brian at courtesy they usually have some kits in stock that have every thing you need to do the swap. I'm not shure about the price. :d

I say your best bet would be to order the rotors through www.nissanparts.cc or Courtesy Nissan. Nissanparts.cc has a parts database on their site so you could enter part numbers and get their prices on those parts. Here are the part numbers:

rotor 257x26mm: 40206-54C01
loaded calipers: 41001-54C03RE & 41011-54C03RE
brake hardware kit (shims): 41080-54C26

Or as an alternative, just get the rotors from Nissan and get the loaded calipers from an auto parts store like Napa, Pep Boys, etc. or an online store like carparts.com. Just remember to look for either SE-R and/or NX2000 JAPAN made regardless of ABS or no ABS. That's how to differentiate between the NX brakes and the SE-R brakes.

I'm going to sound like a moron here for a sec, so please bear with me.....I want a brake upgrade and was wondering if there was any way I could to a BIG upgrade to the front and use the stock front calipers and rotors for the back. Possible? Plausible? any info would be appreciated. BTW, aren't the stock rear rotors solid? That would be the main reason that I would do this. Ventilated rear discs. That would be cool. (no pun intended) TIA

I did this conversion earlier this year for $200 total.

Get loaded Wagner calipers for a Japanese-made NX2000 WITH ABS (nevermind if you don't have ABS, it doesn't matter.) from www.Carparts.com. The loaded calipers come with decent pads and the mounting bracket (important!!!). Use any coupons you can find. You'll pay $100 core charge, but you'll get that back when you return your stock calipers.

For rotors I called up Brake Parts Warehouse in Torrence, CA for some $30 Chinese rotors. Yes, they're OK to use. I race (not on the street, on a real race track!!!) with them. No problem.

Oh, my $200 didn't include SS lines. Get Goodridge, avoid Russell.

Nope... Front calipers and rotors will not work in the back. Torque member mounting points are different (AFAIK). In my opinion, I do not see *any* reason to upgrade the rear brakes, *unless* you're going with an upgrade larger than the NX brakes. The front brakes will be doing more of the braking than the rears. If you want to know of an upgrade, though, the rear calipers and rotors (redrilled to the correct bolt pattern) of a '95-'99 Maxima will work on your car, but it would suck to have the rear brakes lock up before the front. Also, the NX2000 comes with the same size rear brakes as the Sentra SE-R, anyway.

another reason the front calipers adn brakes wont work in the rear is because of the emergency brake cable. you would need to find a way to hook that up.
