I used all front Sammy components. Better to have the same parts at both ends so you can keep the part numbers straight when doing maintenance.

Hi to all i almost finish the swap and YES the performance is outstanding ,i haven't finish the connection of the ebrake .
With the trail t. economy brake kit is a simple almost bolt on kit ,since this kit is for a samurari caliper you will have to modify the bracket of the caliper (shaved )and on the plate of the trail t. kit a tiny modification in one of the holes ,other than that is plug and play ,
for the moment no proportional valve is required I test the brake in dry and wet condition and the performance is excellent ,i an using the subaru master cylinder
so this is a easy conversion using the infiniti G20 rear calipers and the trail t. economy brake and samurai rotors
