That is the used part option. If you mean get a donor truck complete then I will say its a lot cheaper to do it buying just the parts.

So older HB style Pathfinder 2WD rotors share hub sizes with 4WD Pathfinder?

Subscribing and commenting: The Heavy Duty version (mine) has many of the 4x4 truck parts, and it is a 2x4 with the VG30 (V6). In fact, you could simply be putting the H-D components on the front!

It does make it harder to get replacement parts from the auto parts guys, though. They just know they are smarter than you when it comes to your vehicle.

EDIT: Since I have a 2x4 with H-D parts, let me know if any pictures are needed or if I can help.

Before we install the rotor assembly lets go ahead and prepare the calipers and brackets for installation.

Separate the caliper from its bracket.
















Now, we have one modification to make. We have to trim the dust plate so that the caliper bracket will fit. Simply hold the bracket in place and mark the backing plate where it needs to be trimmed. I used an air grinder with cut off wheel.

We can now install our rotor/wheel hub assembly. Simply slide the hub back onto the spindle and seat the rear seal.

Put the outer bearing back into hub, slide the retainer washer on, spin the pre-load nut on the spindle and do the proper tightening sequence.






































The caliper bracket is now ready to be installed.

Simply put it in place and install the bolts to the bracket. Notice there is one bolt longer than the other. They must be this way or it wont install correctly.

Long bolt at top, shorter bolt at bottom. These bolts need to be good and tight. Very tight.






Install the anti-rattle clips to the upper and lower bracket slider.

With the bracket installed it is time to install the brake pads.

I suggest using CRC Disk Brake Quiet compound on the backs of each pad. Spread it out and let it set up for about 15 minutes before installing the pads.








There is a right and left inside pad. This pad has a wear indicator tab that makes noise when the pad is worn down low.
This pad goes to the inside of the bracket with the indicator tab at the bottom.

Now its getting good! Time to install those big ol' calipers!

Simply sit the caliper over the pads. You may have to push the bracket slider pins in a little to allow the caliper to slide over the pads.

The caliper must be the correct one for its respective side. You will know if it is correct when the bleeder valve is higher than the brake line fitting block.











The slider pins have flats on them that keep them from spinning when you tighten the slider pin /caliper bolts. Just line them up correctly before trying to install the bolts.
