Any chance there are vendors/shops on the forum that have a plug N play solution to get the OEM infiniti akebono brake kit fx50 to work with my 2003 fx35?

the front calipers will bolt straight on, you just need a set of the shorter banjo bolts for the hydraulic hoses. The rear are a little tricky as they do bolt onto the stock knuckle however they don't locate properly on the rotor and part of the brake pad won't contact the rotor. You can do that method but it's not ideal. To do the rear properly you should change to a 2nd gen knuckle, but to get that to bolt up you need a custom ball joint adapter. User TurboCad on infinitiscene made a bunch years and years ago but the supply has dried up.

In summary, the fronts are easy to bolt on but the rears are problematic and there is no kit for them at this point. For the fronts you really don't need a kit. Just get a set of calipers, pads and rotors on rock auto, amazon or ebay and a set of shorter banjo bolts.
