91 brake pads keep getting sent the wrong ones.

I have a 91 240sx it used to have abs but I removed the system and ran new lines about 10 years ago.
The front calipers should still be abs versions, but it's been so long I cant remember(was planning 300z upgrade)

I've ordered front abs brake pads twice now and keep getting sent pads that dont fit. Both sets of pads were too long(shim to shim, and dont even fit into the caliper bracket. My original pads are smaller from shim to shim by about 4-6mm.

Does anyone have a side by side photo of the abs vs non abs pads, or can clarify which version is the smaller pad?

You can always go to your local auto parts store and compare.

Perfect! Thanks Tacotacotaco.

After having this project car for 16 years I guess at some point I swapped the calipers to non-abs.

lulz I also discovered you can fit abs rotors into non-abs caliper & bracket if you bend the shims a pinch.
