Easy to do 5 lug swap + Z32 front brakes and Rear Z32 brakes
Parts sheet
(For Base S14 and all S13’S)

Parts needed for 5 lug swap:
S14 SE Front spindle/knuckles
S14 Knuckle to Strut Mounting Bolts ( Some have used S13 bolts)
S14 SE rear Hub or Z32 Non-turbo rear hub (both will work, only hub)
*S13 will need an S14 ball joint pressed into the control arms (ONLY S13)
S14 SE rear rotors.
You’ll also need more lug nuts.
And a set of 5 lug pattern wheels.

Parts needed for Z32 front brakes:
Z32 calipers. Would be good to rebuild them. With new seals, shims, pads.
Z32 Front rotors.
New brake lines made to mate with the Z32 calipers (PDM sells them)

Rear brake upgrade WITHOUT E-brake.

Z32 rear calipers
Z32 rotors
Cut dust shield to fit Z32 rotors

Rear Brake upgrade WITH E-brake

Rear Z32 N/A Hubs (Can’t use S14 SE hubs because of a mounting hole only the Z32 hubs have)
Z32 rotors
Z32 rear calipers
Z32 rear dust shield with Inner drum brake and E-brake cables (will need to extend the lines)

can anyone clarify the difference between the rear brakes w/ or w/o e-brake?

z32 rear brakes use a drum style emergency brake, and our 240sx's dont. &nbsp;If you do just the swap of rotors and calipers, you will lose the stock ebrake.
If you get the entire rear hub assembly, you will get the drum ebrake attached to it. &nbsp;Then you extend the line to your line that is ultimatly attached to the ebrake lever. &nbsp;You now have the z32 ebrake system on your 240sx.

so if you don't do the e-brake conversion w/ that rear brake conversion, you won't have an e-brake <img src="http://www.zilvia.net/f/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt='???'>?

Can anyone give me a ruff estimate as to the cost of this brake conversion? &nbsp;I want to upgrade my braking system soon!
