Available in VERY LIMITED numbers, the Basic Akebono Sport Brake Upgrade Package is the best value 4 wheel Akebono kit on the market! This kit includes all of the necessities to swap Akebono 14'' brakes on your 300ZX, 350Z, 370Z, G35, G37, Q50, or Q60! This basic kit is ONLY available as optioned below.
Z1 Brake Rotors
Z1 Performance Brake Rotors: These high performance brake rotors feature high quality BPI brand blanks machined with your choice of a Slotted Only or Drilled and Slotted finish. These brake rotors are excellent street rotor and perform well under pressure providing better cooling and more heat dissipation than standard rotors.
Z1 2-Piece Brake Rotors (Front and Rear): Our most popular brake rotor is available in our most popular machined design: Sprinkle Slotted. Z1 2-Piece brake rotors are a must have for any weekend warrior / track car. Tipping the scales at a scant 20 pounds per rotor, our two-piece front rotor design loses 10 pounds compared to the stock 30 pound 370z sport rotors, a weight savings of 33%. By significantly reducing the rotors’ unsprung mass, the front of your Nissan or Infiniti car comes to life. This results in noticeably more nimble handling, sharper turn-in, and remarkable response, all while allowing the car to be pushed deeper into the braking zone.
Z1 Brake Caliper Brackets
Z1 Akebono Brake Caliper Brackets will be included with 350Z / G35 and 300ZX models. Z1 Akebono Brackets provide a true bolt-on conversion requiring only minor trimming of the dust shields.
Centric Posi-Quiet: Z1's favorite low dust street pad! Centric Posi-Quiet brake pads offer the best balance between low brake dust, low brake noise, and sufficient cold bite. These are our brake pad of choice on street driven commuters where low dust and low noise are important.
Carbotech XP10 Front / XP8 Rear: Carbotech XP10 / XP8 performance brake pads are a race-only brake pad with high initial bite, exceptional fade resistance, and unmatched rotor friendliness. Due to the high levels of noise and dust, these are recommended as a track-only brake pad.
Remanufactured Akebono Brake Calipers
Included in this wallet friendly package are red painted remanufactured brake calipers. Because we anticipate that most consumers wish to choose their own custom color, these brake calipers come in a very basic RED finish with no decal or logo. Being a remanufactured caliper, it should be expected that these calipers do have minor surface blemishes. If you're one of the many that plans on stripping and powdercoating your own calipers, or these are going on your weekend warrior / track car this is the perfect kit for you!
Note to 300ZX Owners: Included Rear Brake Calipers are machined for perfect fitment. This is a true bolt-on solution, no additional machining or modifications will be necessary. Due to the incredibly low stock in inventory this machining process is performed after your order is placed. This delays shipment by up to 4 weeks.
Brake Line Banjo Bolts
Short banjo bolts are used when converting your braking system from stock NON Sport brake calipers to Akebono Sport Brake Calipers. The OE banjo bolt is too long and will not seal properly making this bolt the missing link between your Non Sport Brake Lines and the Sport Caliper Upgrade. Included is a full set with crush washers. Additionally, you may choose to purchase Z1 Stainless Steel Brake Lines for your respective model seperate to even further enhance pedal feel.
If upgrading from OEM Brembo Brakes, you'll also need to purchase 4 OE rear brake caliper bolts, available HERE. Purchase of these bolts is ONLY necessary if you're upgrading from Brembo brake calipers.
- You must either trim or remove the dust shields behind the brake rotor in order to all for the proper clearance of the larger 14" brake rotors and calipers.
- The 14" Akebono Big Brake Kit requires 18" or larger wheels for correct fitment. Fitment template for Akebono front calipers can be found HERE.
