    you'll need the rear 5 lug hubs of a 300zx or s14, rear 5 lug disk of a s14 or redrill your s13 disk, front 5 lug hubs of a s14a and both spindles, s14 or 300zx front calipers and disk for the 5 lug fitting and brake upgrade or just redrill your standard disks

    Then you need to redrill your discs to suit the 5 stud, but if you buy my hubs you can put them into 4 stud and when your ready to swap over to 5 stud discs you only need to unsrew the studs into the new locations, they are £450 new, they are not very old and were on the car for 3 months, a normal set from a breaker will cost you £200, i want £250 for the posh ones.

    yeah, basicly, the posh ones i have will just help you spread the work, i.e fit these now and still be able to run your standard brakes, then when you have the mooolar just swap the discs and away you go.

    Z32 rear end set up would be better, but then you may as well upgrade the front also.

    I could do you a complete package if you like, as i have all the parts needed in stock, and can sell you the brake conversion lines for new calipers for £35+vat.

    Wow, that's cheap Clarkey good offer. White car dude, you'd probably be best just giving Clarkey some wedge and getting him to do all the work too :)
