Do you just need the brackets? Calipers? Pads? Rotors? Send me a PM.

Please tell us more!

Why would you want this vs. the subbie 4 pots? Bigger rotors? Where would we find the calipers?

Have you thought of shipping these USPS flare rate box??? Under $5.60 bucks for shipping, and they provide the box. Maybe cheaper if postage pay online.

Just a thought.

To my understanding:

Subbie 4 pots use a 26mm thick rotor.

These would use the 30mm rotor and it would be also 1" larger in diameter.

So you would have a lot more contact surface for braking, and as it is thicker, will take more heat before warping... Less fade...

The Nissan calipers also take the same pad as the Subbie 4 pots.

These use the Legacy GT rotor, which is both bigger around and fatter than the 295x24mm Subaru 4-pot rotor.

People have used the Legacy GT brakes as a WRX upgrade, but this is a better overall design, both from a brake torque / bias standpoint and that they're fixed position calipers.

The Nissan z32 caliper is essentially the same as the Subaru 4 pot in design, except that there is a version that can accomodate 30mm wide rotors... like the LGT rotor. Most auto repair places can order remanufactured calipers.

Hopefully KNS puts a caliper link on that page, so we don't have to shop elsewhere for the calipers.

Very interesting, this might be more brake than I need on the BRZ (thinking of just the Subbie 4 Pot) But this would be an awesome upgrade for an LGT which has a decent amount of rotor, but could use a good caliper.

The calipers are around $200 from Autozone - without hardware but no core required.

We are trying to see what we can negotiate w/ them.

We do have 1 set if someone wants.

what is the minimum wheel size for these? would they fit under 'gravel spec' wheels like the subaru 4pots?

16" RS wheels...?

There is some discussion of this in the thread in the brake / suspension forum. Brakes with 316mm rotors will definitely not fit 15" wheels, gravel spec wheels are right out. They should fit some 16" wheels, but clearance is something that will need to be test fit.

If the offset is the same as the Subaru 4 pots, then I came up with a way to make a template you can print out, cut and check against your wheels to be reasonably certain on fitment, check it out here:
http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show...&postcount=149

But that does make some assumptions, so not 100%. The 2 most important assumptions are that the caliper is 3mm wider from rotor centerline to outward face of the caliper than the Subaru 4 pot and that the rotor offset is the same between LGT and WRX / 4 pot rotors.

The caliper shape is extremely similar to the 4 pots, so this should be a pretty close approximation for a template that has clearance built in.

It will definitely fit "some" 16x7 wheels that have good spoke clearance (or spacers or low offset.) The team Dynamics Pro Race 1.2 is easy to verify that with, since you can print out the PDFs and overlay them. ET45 of that wheel has a bunch more clearance than the Pro Rally 15x6 ET49 when you add 11mm to the centerline so it "templates" like a 16" wheel. Even the ET50 is really close, it clears the 15x6 spoke, but fails to have +3mm clearance everywhere. But I don't have the RS 6 spoke wheels anymore, so I can't check those with this template.

Ive been running these calipers for years with a custom bracket KNS made for SVX rotors. Its its always worked great. I sort of want too buy these brackets and a set of lgt rotors...

I need rear gravel rotors too.

Spectacular. With the brackets, new rotors, remanufactured calipers, AND a set of new brake pads (front and rear), WITH shipping, for under $500.

Where have you been all this time?

Can't you just make a bracket for Subaru 4 pots that space it out enough to fit the bigger Legacy Rotor if the Z32 caliper is the same?

No

First - the FHI caliper only fits a 24mm thick rotor - -plus you would have to clock the caliper so that the holes didn't interfere. The tabs on the Nissan caliper are closer together and the offset is different.

I meant similar in nature to what he has. I know yours obviously look different then his bit he's asking WAY too much for them.

The only perk is that he has adapters that allow the use of both the front AND rear calipers.

Thoughts on something like this?

Ah - I see.

Well this was a way simpler bracket than say the rear Brembo one - so I am not sure why he has the multiple pieces. Certainly rather it be solid.

For the rear - the nissan caliper offers no real advantage. So just use the Subaru one and we already have that bracket.
