From my old pictures the fittings appear to be different but it looks like you found your answer: https://my350z.com/forum/brakes-and-...ake-lines.html

$1k+ is the on going price around here. If your really lucky, look harder and you can find them below $1k shipped...

The server is currently down, but try mynismo.com and click on factory parts. It will take you to their "detailed" online guide of parts. It should give you all the information you need. GL

The bolt is a grade 6, if you go to ace they have this patter
Tell them you need a 12mm 1.75x35mm grade 5 bolt

I looked everywhere for a grade 6, the dealer had them only. They were $4 a piece, The bolts from ace were just over a doller. The tensile strength from grade 5 to 6 is not enough to worry about. From what I heard, just brakes uses the bolts all the time when doing caliper repairs.

If I'm switching my 03 OEM brakes with some guy who has brembos, we can reuse eachothers parts right? Or is there anything else that I will need to purchase?

Are the OEM Brembo rotors directional? I would guess I could use them on either side, just wanna be 100% sure before I do the install.

^ I didnt think so, I know with some aftermarket rotors, the heat sync inbetween the two rotor faces is directional. Thanks for confirming.

Does anyone know the torque specs for the caliper mounting bolts? I need to get some 22mm to do this and wondering if i need 3/8 or 1/2 drive sockets? Would i also need a wrench or will the socket wrench suffice?

For the bolt specs refer to post #33 in this thread :
https://my350z.com/forum/5142697-post33.html

As far as a socket or wrench - if you're using anything to torque it to spec then stick with whatever it is and whatever size that is. -use whatever works.

I suggest:

Also is it necessary to bleed out the entire system first or do it after the brembos are installed???
