Default Nissan 370z Akebono nismo Front caliper or set.

Hello, I'm looking to buy either a set of 370z nismo Akebono front caliper set or a single caliper(any side). I'm actually test fitting these on my Nissan sedan and I want to see if I can do the conversion. Please let me know what you have available, Thank you!

Pretty sure you know what they look like, but just for a reference(top one).

Try Z1 Motorsports. You'll be better off with a new set IMO. Chances are, used sets usually require new pads/rotors. They sell the fronts as set with your choice of finish. The infiniti branded ones are cheaper and you have an option to get them powder coated. Otherwise it's grey, red or the infiniti gold...or was it silver. I cant remeber the moment. Worth a look at before investing in a used set if you haven't done so already.

If the mounting points and wheels clear, I don't see why these wouldn't work on a Maxima.

The standard caliper color for all 2013 Z's with the sports package is "ricer" red, but you probably knew that too, right?

Thanks, and yea, I've been done with red calipers, they should've made them black or gold. I could've gotten the Infiniti ones, but I don't want there logo on my caliper.

I've got a complete set of 2010 Nissan 370z Calipers in gunmetal with 5k miles on them. Comes complete with Calipers, Rotors, Pads, shims and lines. I would be willing to sell them complete for $1300 or part the calipers if the price is right.
