    Default B13 Maxima Rear Brake Upgrade Issues

    Here is my issue:









    Here's the car:



    On a cool note, this was my awesome Christmas present:





    Rotors are definitely correct, they measure 10.1 inches and are 4x100.
    Calipers, brackets, pads came from pull-a-part off a 94 Maxima SE. Looks to me like the brackets are wrong because nearly a half inch of the pad isn't being used. I thought this was supposed to be the correct year though?

    You have the right size rotor (258mm) and the right year Maxima caliper (1992-1994) so I wonder if the previous Maxima owner didn't do some sort of swap or upgrade to the brackets and or calipers. I've got a B13 with Maxima rears, and from your picture of the rotor on the hub, something definitely doesn't look right.

    Well I didn't exactly picture my calipers but I will post some pics of them tonight. I have no idea what's going on here, according to the interwebz everything should bolt up/line up just fine.

    94 use 2 different rotors, before 2/94 use the 10"(258mm) while the 2-94+ use the 278mm rotors.

    Okay that makes sense, so I probably got the bracket for the 278mm rotors. I'll make a trip back out to pull-a-part and get some different brackets tomorrow. I can use a P10 rear caliper bracket too, correct?

    I got my rotors from rockauto.com. They were the Centric wholesaler closeout special and were $8 per rotor. I found the calipers are actually cheaper from a local parts store vs rockauto, though.

    And btw, I got the correct brackets from pull-a-part and everything bolted together perfectly. E-brake cable hooks right up if you just loosen the adjustment under the center console. Easiest brake upgrade ever.

    I ran into a similar issue when doing it on my B14, the 95-99 maxima calipers are meant to be used for the 11" rotors. all i did was swap the caliper brackets off a B15/P11 and it fits perfect.

    When I first did this upgrade years ago I got calipers from a 96 SE and had no issues at all. I recently did another upgrade on the rear to the 278mm rotor. The 00-03 maximas/I30s and b15s with the brembo package had that rotor on them. They used the taller bracket that you speak of. I've never heard of the older maximas using the larger rotor.

    ^^ i guess it's the same reason why we have the 10" rotor with the 4x100 cause no nissan in the US came with it!

    I just looked on rockauto. I see the different sizes they list. Don't know why mine worked because I got the calipers and brackets from a 96.

    Bump, I'm doing this now. 95 maxima calipers on a 92 Ser. Nothing exactly bolted up just yet. The caliper sends the parking brake cable right into my sway bar, so I put the left caliper on the right side of the car, and vice versa, and had to route them all stupid.
    Idk bout my rotors yet. Posting pix later

    You're supposed to use the 90-94 Maxima brakes which have the similar design as the B13/P10. (Independent rear suspension)
    The 95-99/00-03 Maxima/I30 share the same design at the B14/15/P11 (rear beam)

    I ran into this issue last night converting my drums to disc. Someone on this forum guaranteed me they were P10 calipers and B13 parking brake cables. Found out the hard way that they are 95-99 Maxims calipers and B14 cables. So now I have my Sentra torn apart with no rear brakes. I ain't putting the drum shit back on.

    That's lame. Poor seller. And you suffer the end results of his oversights. The e-brake location is dead giveaway. I remember looking at rear brakes of my B14 and I had purchased cheap, closeout sale of B13 calipers and noted the differences. I eventually sold the reman B13 calipers to a friend The differences can be noted here here.

    What if we're doing this rear brake upgrade but you wanted slotted rear rotors?
    Then should we just get either ask for 1994 SE Maxima calipers, brackets- or P10 calipers
    and then ask for the rear slotted rotors (making sure they are 258mm) for a Maxima SE?
    I just want to make sure everything bolts up.

    You can get the correct rotors from fastbrakes.com.

    I ordered mine in sorted and drilled in correct JDM NX size so they would match the slotted and drilled 11" Wilwood front setup.
