My god I'm shocked, that's the biggest response to any thread I have started on here!

Ask a technical question and I'm lucky if anyone replies but state some facts about whats happened and everyone answers.

So please tell me what maintenance do you do to a rear cailper?
For it to seize, i would presume its a Nissan type caliper rather than a Brembo, therefor the rear would be a slider, which needs periodic checking, cleaning and greasing of the slider bolts.

As far as not getting answers to technical questions, you have to remember that there are not many 350GT owners in comparison to the GTS/GTT/GTR owners here, and even less of them are active, i always try and answer questions in this section if i can, and have answered many of yours.

The slide pins are nice and free. It's the piston which has siezed.

If that first post is a technical post, I really don't want to know what a standard post would be like. :disappointed:
