Are these standard brakes?

Recommended Posts

My 1990 R32 has these brakes - I was told that these are an upgraded brake caliper compared to normal - Being that the car is totally stock I wanted to find out a little more about them - are they not standard and if so why did some cars come out with them.20201130_125640.thumb.jpg.de318b9cd7cfbf062f141f8fba2f43b2.jpg

R32 GTS-t and Z32 calipers are winged like that, appears to be sitting on 280mm discs too looking at the distance between the disc & 16" wheel.

So are you going for standard too?

For a cheap, effective, and reliable (can't believe those 3x words could be in the same sentence) go for OEM R34 GT-t calipers, with 310mm discs. They still use the same DB1170 brake pads.

All you need to do is enlarge the bolt hole to accommodate the 14mm bolt off the R34 caliper, then the discs, calipers, bolt straight on. Just need to grind off the lip on the disc shield behind. Some remove it altogether, however it's recommended it remains there to avoid debris being thrown at your rotors.
