Default nissan 2pot rear same as subaru 2pot rear?

Well, I think we talked a lot about nissan/subaru 4pot front, but what about the 2pot rear caliper? are they the same? mounting holes? nissan rear 2pot can take subaru rear vented rotors?


Anyone done this?

My used subaru 4pot can still lock up the front wheel during autox (before the rear) and I need more rear brake bias.. already used better KVR CF pads in the rear on stock rotors.


thx

No, I have the rear Z32 two-pots, they don't bolt on.

Julian, I assume that you try to bolt the 2pot caliper to new backing plate, right?

Regards,

Ernest

Ernest, I don't know nuthin' about no "new" backing plate, but the bolt spacing for the Sube rear caliper is nearly twice as wide as the bolt spacing for the Z32 two-pots.

MY00 RS, not that it matters.

If I have a choice and for not much money more, I like to get either subaru logo or nissan logo on the caliper

typical rear 2pot package sold in Japan (notice the new mounting plate):

Well the reason why they will not fit is because the Subaru 2pot dust shield is different from that of the stock 1pot. I know because I have the Subaru 2pots on the rear of my RS. To install the new dust shield, you will have to have the hub pulled out.
