Installation

Akebono Big Brake kit adapters

Unlike Brembo Gold Akebono brake kit is normally designed for another car(370z) and doesn't fit bolt-on to 350z and G35(V35) so for installation it's required to use special adapters to align front calipers properly against the rotors. The could be manufactured by various companies, bellow are just some of them. Please note these adapters are required for front calipers only, so it's needed just two of them.

Manufacturer OEM
CZP 41G37-VP100
