I know this is an old thread, but I am having this same problem. I have this rebuild kit: https://www.nissanraceshop.com/produ...ont-4112012u25

The dust boots for the larger piston on the front caliper are too big. Anyone ever figure out which kit will work?

I found this one at Courtesy: http://www.courtesyparts.com/41000l-...=714_880_4405&

Any thoughts? Thanks!

I'm in the process of ordering rebuild kits for my Brembos coming in. Did you guys figure out the problem? Is this just a problem with nissanraceshops rebuild kits or all rebuild kits?

I ordered mine from Z1 Motorsports and there was no issue. The front caliper has 2 different sized pistons so I do not know if the guy below did not realize this or if he was shipped the wrong kit either way Z1 kit is good to go.

I found a video on youtube of a guy rebuilding a set of brembo's for a Porsche. He used wood clamps to hold the other 3 pistons in while he popped the one he needed out with the air hose. The reason for the wood clamps is they have rubber covers on the clamps and protect the paint/powdercoat. I did this and it worked very well just make sure to get a proper sized set of clamps and be carefull with your fingers those pistons come out quite fast.

Haven't read anyone mention soaking the piston seals. You should soak them 30mins before installation. It will save you forcing pistons back in. You may have one or two that remain tough but they generally just need to break past resistance and then you can show them in.

They're OEM Nissan parts for the 370Z - any Nissan dealer, or courtesyparts.com, etc.
