Recently upgraded from stock brakes on an 05 coupe to this kit with hawk HPS pads, the difference in pedal feel and braking performance is night and day. They originally forgot to include the front adapter brackets but got them to me very quickly when I called. When installing, be sure to check the bolts for the brackets. There are two bolts that are slightly longer than others, and those are the ones to be used with the spacer or else they will rub on the back of the rotor.

After months of research and debate between different braking setup. I decided to purchase the Akebono brake kit with slotted rotors, pads and stainless braided lines. The install took about 3-4 hours including bleeding the brake. The quality and fitment of the front calipers bracket was excellent. Brake shield was easily cut and modify to fit the bigger rotors, and the overall fitment of pads/rotors was perfect. The car stopping power has been improved by a huge percent with zero brake noise.

Description

AkebonoLogo.png

Your search for an affordable, high-quality big brake kit is over! The Akebono 14" big brake kit was made available on the Nissan 370Z Sport and Infiniti G37 Sport models, and offers a drastic upgrade in braking performance for the 350Z!

CZP designed the original mounting bracket, and tested it on the track: SuperStreet: CZP Akebono Brake Upgrade



Featuring 14" diameter, 32mm vented rotors in front and 13.8" diameter, 20mm vented rotors in the rear, these brakes are absolutely huge. The front calipers use quad opposing-pistons with a 40mm bore, and the rears are dual opposing-pistons with a 36mm bore, and both front rear calipers are constructed from aluminum to save weight. The sheer size of this kit provides stronger braking performance through increase leverage and pad contact area, while the large rotors increase heat capacity, making these brakes hold up against brake fade longer on the track. For serious enthusiasts, we also offer our lightweight 2-piece Rotors as options above.

The basic kit includes all parts necessary:

  • Akebono 4-Piston Front Caliper
  • Akebono 2-Piston Rear Caliper
  • CZP Custom Front Caliper Adapter w/ All Necessary Hardware
  • Front & Rear Nissan OEM or Centric 14" Rotors
  • Front & Rear Centric Posi-Quiet Brake Pads
  • Front & Rear Brake Pad Hardware w/ Pins & Clips
Our kit can be customized to fit any build and budget! Just use the options above to build the perfect kit for your car!

Please note that, like all big brake kits, you will need to trim or remove the rotor dust shields to fit the larger rotors. Also note that due to the size of this kit, aftermarket wheels are required. The Akebono kit requires at least 18" wheels, and fitment will depend on the size and offset of the wheel. To ensure this kit will work for you, use our printable templates to check fitment with your wheels:
