G'Day,

Is there a way to upgrade the front brakes of a GU 2,8 RD28. My steering wheel is shaking during breaking, becaus the brake rotors are warped.

Maybe there are bigger ones, of a Gu with more hp output, which will fit in plug and play. Or from another Nissan.

Do a search for slotted rotors.

Either DBA or RDA brand make them to bolt straight on for both front and rear (standard size so you do not need to spend heaps changing calipers). They are cheaper than replacing Genuine Nissan rotors. Even with standard nissan brake pads the slotted rotors make a difference.

You could also look at the rotors and calipers from a 4.8 petrol GU, they have bigger brakes. The rotor diameters on the 4.8 are 316mm fr 330mm rear, All other models are 306mm fr 315mm rear But if you have 15" rims they may not fit depending on the offset.

Thanx alot for your fast replies.
I like the idea with the bigger brake from the 4,8. I've done a similar swap on my 180SX. But it could be difficult to get the stuff in Germany.
Do you know if they have different master cylinders and boosters?
