Z1 Motorsports 14" Akebono Big Brake Kit (350Z / G35 Front & Rear)

starstarstarstarstar_half 4.5/5 - (2 Reviews)
Fits models: 350Z / G35

Product Description

Z1 offers this complete brake upgrade package for all G35 & 350Z owners looking for an economical, complete big brake kit, in comparison to the much more expensive aftermarket kits already available.  Produced by Akebono Japan by request from Nissan Motors for the '09+ Nissan 370Z and the '08+ G37, the quality and durability of these calipers and hardware are undeniable.

The beauty of the Z1 Motorsports 14" Akebono brake kit, as opposed to much more expensive aftermarket brake kits, lies in the fact that it uses OEM Nissan/Infiniti parts.  This means there will not be the added headache associated with extended wait periods on expensive replacement parts.  Almost all of the parts found in the Z1 Motorsports Akebono Kits can be purchased from any local area Nissan or Infiniti Dealer any where in the country! The rear rotors also fit your current parking brake shoes meaning you do not lose your parking brake!

Z1 Motorsports Akebono Sport Brake Upgrade Package for all Infiniti G35's and Nissan 350Z's comes standard with all (4) NEW OEM Akebono Calipers with pins, clips and springs, Drilled & Slotted Rotors, and Centric Posi-Quiet Brake Pads. Each of the standard items are configurable to your needs in addition to the options to add much needed accessories such as lines and fluid.

Choosing the proper pad and rotor configuration relies on your needs. Is your Z/G a daily driver (street only), weekend warrior (street and occasional track use), or race car (track only)? The way this question is answered will determine the necessary pad and rotor configuration.

Brake Calipers

Silver Infiniti calipers come standard with the Sport Package on Infiniti G37's. Grey Nissan calipers came standard with the Sport package offered on earlier 370Z's. Red Nissan calipers come standard with the Sport Package on newer 370Z's.

Brake Rotors

OEM Nissan blank rotors have flat smooth surfaces to provide the most quiet consistent brake operation under normal driving conditions. Drilled and Slotted rotors offer a more sporty look and improved cooling over blank rotors. Slotted Only rotors provide better cooling than blank rotors and more consistent heat dissipation than drilled and slotted rotors with more subtle styling. Z1 2-piece Drilled and Slotted. Slotted Only, & Sprinkle Slotted Front Rotors provide the same benefits of both styles while also offering a 10lb weight savings PER front rotor along with substantially improved cooling! Z1 2-piece Drilled and Slotted, Slotted Only, & Sprinkle Slotted Rear Rotors NOW Available offering a 5lb weight savings PER rear rotor along with substantially improved cooling meaning you can take up to 30lbs off of this kit by selecting 2-Piece Rotors!

Brake Pads

Centric Posi-Quiet Ceramic brake pads are the recommended choice for most vehicles due to their low dust and good performance. These pads are used for street cars and weekend warriors that choose to swap pads before track days. OEM Nissan brake pads are the same pads they put on the cars from the factory, dusty, long life, non aggressive pads. StopTech Performance brake pads offer similar low dust and low noise characteristics as the Posi-Quiets and offer more linear performance regardless of temperature for a more predictable feel for spirited driving and light track use. Hawk HPS 5.0 brake pads "offer more stopping power and get resistance to brake fade, elevating your street car’s performance". Hawk Performance Ceramic brake pads offer low dust, low noise, and a linear friction profile in a wide heat range. Hawk HP Plus brake pads are ideal for track events. On the street the dust and noise output may not be desirable. Carbotech Performance brake pads are for the track. These aggressive pads, with their predictable friction, initial bite, and heat tolerance, will provide the confidence necessary to complete track events. (XP10 front & XP8 rear included with the option below)

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 to even further enhance pedal feel.

Customize your Akebono Brake kit to fit your budget and driving style by choosing the appropriate selections from the options list below:

International Customers outside of Canada and the Continental United States are asked to contact the Z1 Motorsports Parts Department to receive a shipping quote based on shipping destination.

Installation note:
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. Z1 CANNOT guarantee fitment on all 18'' wheels, please be mindful that inner barrel clearances vary between different types of wheels. Z1 recommends using the afformentioned template to verify fitment on ALL 18'' wheels prior to ordering if you cannot verify fitment.

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 can also custom tailor your Akebono Brake kit to fit your budget and driving style by choosing from the options list below:

If you're unsure which brake pad would best suit your driving style, please see the video below where we discuss the benefits of each pad we offer!

Excellent kit with great parts! Overall not a difficult job, but it's time consuming without a lift. I did this on my 2004 within one day. Order an 11 mm hex bit for your torque wrench so you can tighten the brackets to spec, as my local AutoZone didn't have any on hand (Amazon for the win). Last thing you want are your calipers falling off when you need to go from 100 to zero real quick. Also, I am running stock 2006 5 spoke rims on my 04, and needed to 20 mm spacers to fit without issues. The rears went on without any clearance issues. Very happy with the kit as is, and my Z stops on a dime now!

well made bracket, bolts right up. only issue i don't like is how the calipers sit at a slight angle and doesn't use full pad surface. also had to grind down the top part of the caliper on that one side so it wouldn't rub the inside of my 18" rp03.
