Well, if people got their caliper refurbished from familiar places then the core charges aren't somthing you want to pay + shipping. I have $160 core charges associated with my calipers alone. Maybe you'll get lucky though.So anyone that has done this wanna sell me there stock b13 se-r rear brake setup (calipers, rotors, pads)? I have drum brakes.
As long as it is a J30 Maxima SE (92-94), not the Infiniti J30. The Infiniti uses a completely different rear brake setup. You will need the Maxima brackets as they are different than the B13 brackets. Look at the 1st post on Page 1 and you will see what I mean.so back from the dead...can i use the calipers off a 94 J30? do i need to swap the brackets to keep th e brake?
As DC recommended in his article, I am swapping to the Ferodo DS2500's now. I did not like the Hawk HPS; besides lacking in both initial bite and higher temp operation, they threw a nasty rust colored dust I found very hard to get out of the black finish of the Motgei Traklites. Possibly if the front works more effectively I won't see this behavior in the rears. At normal speed for autox, they just lock a touch with can be good or bad, but from higher speeds, both rear wheels will lock if you push down hard, even briefly, that sucks especially if your car is not going perfectly straight down the track.:eek2:Project Nissan Sentra SE-R - Boxcar Vs. Jellybean said:Trying to scrub 50mph at the end of the short straight is terrifying. Sadly, the brakes we just installed aren't working as hoped. Initial bite is great, but the harder you push, the more things get numb and spongey. There's a moment of terror, as you wonder if the car will actually slow down, then surprise rotation as you realize the rear brakes have been locked for the last 100 feet and you're turning your new R-compounds square. Blame the pads for this one.
