Hey guys,

2 weeks ago I replaced my brakes on my NX. They needed it badly. I got pads and rotors all around.

here is my question. I had the parts guy order the ones for abs.. Did all NX'en have abs. This is a 93.

Also I really had to squeeze the rear pads in to get them in. Has anyone else had this problem? I think they were just never replaced during the whole cars life so there was a lot of oxidation and so forth, but maybe I should have gotten different pads?

Dunno about if all NXen had abs.... but.. the rear calipers have to have the pistons "turned" back in before the new pads go in...
they make a special tool for it, bvut if you have some patience you can use a pair of needle nose pliers.
later

no I'm talking about in the actual brake pad carrier. (torque member) They fit tight in there, I know about twisting the piston as you push it in.

Not all NX's had ABS
it was an option as a power package
if you have power windows and locks you got ABS
at least this is the way it was for the 93

Mine does not have abs, or power windows & locks

Um... Yup! My '93 has all options except ABS. In 1993, T-tops were standard on the NX2K. I believe the power package included power windwos, door locks, and Cruise. ABS was a separate option.

Why didn't the '93 come with a leather wrapped steering wheel? AFAIK, the '91 did and so did the SE-R's!

from an actual '93 NX2000/1600 brochure...

ABS is an option on the nx2k BUT it requires the power package.
the power package includes power windows, door locks and cruise control.
from wat i see, in 93 the only options for the NX2k are as follows..
4speed slush box
ABS
AC
and the power package

I've never seen what the ABS distrubution block looks like for SR powerd Cars so Ill take a crack at it.

Somwhere in the Engine bay near the Driver side you should
have some metal box with a bunch of metal lines runing to and fro.

It would be in line after the Master Cylinder.

I would think you would know if it had it or not. expecialy having an Slush box (auto) when your at a stop and you slowly let off the break and the car starts to move forward you should feel the jitters.(well this works for amarican cars)

I may be talking out of my A$$ though

Maybe someone else can chime in

Ok then, say you bought NX brake parts for abs and you don't have it. What were the differences? I compared rotors and they looked to be the same size. The pads seemed the same as well...

What were the differences between abs and non abs for brake parts?

Im not sure what the difference would be if any.
I know that the Drive shafts are ABS/Non ABS because they have little teeth looking things on the ABS ones. But I dont think the actual Pads and rotors are any different.

where you trying to do the big brake upgrade? if so, you needed the JDM brakes. go to the parts store and when they ask you if your NX was built in japan, say yes.

You should have taken the 12mm bolts out and lubed them with something like CRC Synthetic Caliper Grease. Thats what i do. But do not over lube them. You will push the dustboot out with too much grease.

no no, not that. I'm talking about where you push the pads in. they fit tight there. Actually trying to squeeze them in.
