When you are barreling down the road in your Maxima and its about that time to hit the brakes. Don't you wish they would stop that much more and not be so slushy?? Well IRotors may have something to solve all of your braking system woe's come in and check out what they have to offer you all. It surely wont break your wallet and add some style to your ride all at the same time.
Basing our review from factory rotors there are two additions to these new IRotors, one being the slotted and drilled nature of these rotors and also the Zinc plating which is meant to prevent these rotors from rusting while the car is not in use. As you may notice these start out as being standard Brembo blank rotors and are then slotted and drilled at the IRotors facility. Also in the pictures you may notice that the IRotors are of equal size to that of factory meaning you will not need larger than 17" wheels if you are concerned about that. In the second set of pictures below you will notice the almost equal size and measure of the IRotors compared to factory.

Where To Purchase:
Irotors 1994-2001 MAXIMA Front/Rear Combo
Irotors: (888) 8-ROTORS)
Tools Required for Installation:
Sockets and Rear Brake caliper tool
Possibly a hammer (removal of factory rotors)
Installation Process: FRONT
Now that you've successfully removed the factory rotor, all that needs to be done is replace the IRotors. Put on your new pads, and reconstruct the brake assembly making sure that the brake fluid isn't pouring out from the reservoir in the engine bay while you compress the piston enough to fit them over the new rotors. Repeat on the other side and your fronts are complete. *Apply anti-seize to guide pins(14mm) for easy motion and equal braking force across the pads.*
Installation Process: REAR
The front is done, and you have the rear up on the Jack/Jack stands ready to go. Start by removing the tires as usual and unbolting the caliper (14mm) and torque member/caliper bracket (19mm). The rotors should fall out but in some cases will need some taping from a hammer to help break them loose. Replace with new IRotors and reconstruct brake system. Repeat on opposite side.
Breaking in new Rotors:
There are plenty of different techniques to breaking in new rotors/pads feel free to follow whichever you wish, but take caution as you are using new equipment and that initial test might not working too great so take it slow.
