calipers

hows it going guys
so i bought what i though would be 30mm z32 calipers but when i got them and looked at them i noticed they were not here are some pics calipers.jpg picture by titopr06 - Photobucket does anyone know what calipers these are?? i have searched and im thinking they are either r33 gts-t or r34gt-t calipers so i need to know exactly what calipers they are and which rotors they use, because the r33 uses 296x30mm and r34 a 310x30mm rotor please correct me if i am wrong i just need help to find out what rotors they use and where i can purchase some, thanks

thanks for the input guys, bejota i took some more pictures look at these
DSC00717.jpg picture by titopr06 - Photobucket
im pretty sure they are either r33 or r34 gts calipers but since they basically look the same i cant tell but they use different rotors so thats what i need to figure out, also the calipers have 2L and 2R on them i know the l is for left and R for right but what do the number mean anyone know???thanks guys

dont think the numbers really mean anything though maybe the batch they were made. I would measure the top part across where the hole is and then you can kinda go by the specs on what size rotors you will need.

Z32 TT : 280mm x 30mm (4 pot ali sumitomo caliper)
S14, S15 : 280mm x 30mm (4 pot sumitomo caliper)

Well, we can tell it's 4 pot so we can cross out all the others...
It's not a brembo so cross those out...
It looks exactly like my r33 caliper which is gts-25t ("gts-t") so your rotor is 296x30. Unless I was mistakenly told mine was r33, then we're both fucked.

i think, from the pictures, but since you didn't position the ruler correctly but i think you have 32mm brakes... you will need r32 rotors, courtesynissan has them, but if you want to check first...

try this... measure the space where the disc would go not between the calipers but after them you will see like the shape of the disc, measure from one side to the other and use a converter online to change from inches to mm or something like if you can't do it yourself, if its 32mm then you have r32 calipers which is what most people find around here in PR that AREN'T z32 calipers... i doubt you might have r33 and r34 calipers cause in PR nobody brings those parts... most r32 calipers come from republica since there are a bunch of them over there...

and like sileighty 85 said, they might be s14 calipers... why do you think they are NOT z32 calipers? they do look a bit rusted like iron calipers (unless its brake dust and the pic makes it look like that) take a magnet and see if its atracted or not...

you should get someone to measure their calipers that they say look like yours and compare numbers, then you have your rotor size

its your only option, because if you purchase rotors and they wont work, you get burned on shipping and restocking fees etc.

i bought the calipers of ebay, the guy that sold them to me told me they were z32 but im sure they are not look at this The Definitive 300ZX Brake Swap! check out the brake comparison and look at mine and all of the z32 ones the ones i got have some dimples on the sides of them by the nissan sign and the shape overall is different.

mano deverdad no entiendo de donde medirlos si me puedes espliicar te lo agradesco gracias por la ayuda.
