So to do both front brembos you need to order two kits? and two kits for rear?


This should be the rear set:

I'm confused? It says for the front you need two kits, one for each caliper I assume.

"In the Nissan universe, this part is known as SEAL KIT-DISC BRAKE.
The 350Z (Z33) uses a quantity of 2 of this part in this location."

On the rear it only mentions you need 1 kit

I think that is wrong no? You will probably need 4 total one for each caliper. Can anyone confirm?

They probably upgraded the forum software and the original link is broken.

I found that same thread here:
