Brake Rotors 370GT, 2008 Coupe Type S


Recommended Posts

G’day all,

 

I can’t seem to find much about this topic on the forum so thought I would ask.

 

looking to swap out the original rotors both front and back and have been looking at DBA assemblies.

 

I have measured (roughly) both front and back rotors and have come up with this.

 

front is the 355mm rotor DBA 2314 (they come in a number of series and drilled/slotted versions).. that’s great… but

 

the rear is the 330mm standard 2337E which has no other alternatives. The next size up is the 350mm that comes in all of the 4000 and 5000 versions.

 

I could just get standard on both front and back but if I’m gonna change them out I want to get something aesthetically pleasing…

 

can anyone recommend either a caliper swap out (and with what, and handbrake assembly) or another brand that supplies both back and front (especially the rear in the 330mm) to suit the front.

Does your car not come with the big brakes from Akebono? If so, they use the same rotors and pads as the 370z - 2314/2315 range.

Yeah, on the front. But I want to match the rear and that is the 330mm. Not with the 170mm handbrake.

Did you install them yourself and it was not stock? If stock, front and rear Akebonos use 2314 and 2315.

Nah, I mis-measured them… they are 350 rears and yeah they are the stock Akebono. I ended up getting the 2314 Gold X and 2315 Gold x. Great rotors

    • The price of gtrs has just gone completely stupid. Are they worth it? Hell no. Bout 7-8 years ago R34s went down to $38k, r32s on this site could be had for $9k-$12k and people were shit talking them by saying they wouldn’t tough one at those prices coz of the work needed  I had a r33 gtr. it was good value for money at the time  if I had $200- $400k to spend on a car, I sure as shit would not be buying a gtr 
    • Don't know about this one. Though I spent a lot of time looking at cars that I couldn't buy. This worked for me:   1) Make account on carsales 2) Search for the car you are after, eg. R34 GTRs 3) Save the search and tick the box for notifications 4) Receive email / notification every time a car is listed 5) Save the car by clicking the heart button 6) Go through your saved cars periodically and see which ones stay listed for ages, which ones go down in price and which ones are gone in no time   I haven't looked at GTRs, but I noticed a good bargain won't last a week, sometimes not even a weekend. You won't see those if you only search occasionally. The ones that ask for too much don't sell and stick around forever.
    • IMO anything less than this isn't worth it
    • Contact East Coast Customs they have been working on them for a while and know their way around them https://www.facebook.com/eccustoms
    • The car has been around for awhile now and is popular. So a good portion of mechanics have probably worked on them.  I just did a google search of "Brisbane import mechanic" a few popped up
