For the fronts you can use Z32/Z31/q45/s13/etc front calipers on the SE strut tube. You will need hubs/ wheelbearing from the 88-89 z31 turbo front hubs(5lug) or m30 front hubs(4lug) to accept slip on rotors.

The rears you can upgrade to Z31 rear vented brakes(swapping arms) or Z32(hardware swap and modify arm). There is a sticky for the Z32 brakes and my thread has info on the Z31 brakes. As for other rear brakes, I'm sure they'll work but you might end up losing the cable ebrake function or something similar. Just keep searching around for more info.

I think there's a two piston(Pathfinder) caliper that'll fit in the Z31 spot if it's any help.

Just to get an idea of what replacements, conversions, upgrades, whatever you want to call them will give you heres a list:

240sx 1 piston
z31 turbo 2 pistons
z31 84-86 1 piston
z32 non turbo 2 pistons
z32 turbo 4 4 pistons
q45 2 pistons

edit: sorry, this info is only for the fronts not the rear...


if im wrong please correct me, all the information was pulled from a google shopping search haha
