I actually bought a pair of redrilled ones but were way too thick to fit in between the pads. Just wanted to see if possibly someone can send a link to a pair of rotors they're possibly running.

That means something is wrong. They are called 30mm calipers because the rotor is 30mm thick. Measure your rotor. If its 30mm thick then you either already have 26mm calipers or you have pads that are too thick and need to be ground down or replaced.


You could easily have the same problem with 26mm units. They are interchangeable fit on THE EXACT SAME CAR. Swapping the whole kit out to 26mm will likely fix it because you are replacing the incorrect piece along with perfectly good pieces. Not Because the 26mm magically bolt up but the 30mm doesn't.


You can't have 30mm z32 calipers and 30mm z32 caliper brake pads and 30mm z32 rotors and not have them work together. One of those three HAS to incorrect.


Here's a site with fantastic z32 brake parts comparisons.




Find the problem, don't just throw money at it.
