Easier too. The Maxima was built on the 280zx platform and although the vented rotors and calipers aren't an exact match they are very similar in size. The boots are still un-torn in these 710 struts too. Isn't there a way to replace the shock oil? The Maxima springs would be stiffer too?
If the Maxima strut has the original OE oil damper still in it, it's an easy re furbishment Mike. Take the top hat off and then remove the strut nut. Have a look down the tube, if there is an "O" ring around the top of the assembly, then it's probably the OE damper. To remove it, get a small, fine dental pick and gently remove the "O" ring, if you don't puncture or tear it in removal, you can re use it. Get a big basin of some sort and gently remove the damper assembly, don't let any of the valve parts fall off the bottom or you're gonna have to figure out the order and orientation of re assembly, not fun, I had to figure one out before. Place the damper assembly into the basin and let stand and drain of all old oil. Pour the rest of the oil in the strut tube out and you can spray it with a little brake clean and wipe out any gunk on the bottom of need be. Refill with your choice of Motorcycle fork oil (for it's anti foaming agents) I used 20W on my Nissan Euro springs and 30W on my Specialty "autocross" springs. I don't know the refill capacity of the OE Maxima assembly, you're gonna have to look that one up, I do have the 510 ones around though. Be careful not to overfill! Reassemble and you're good to go. Total cost is about $18 for the fork oil! Yeah, Ratsun!
With the brakes, I'd imagine that the real problem would be the calipers, not the rotors! You might have to make up a new mount for the Maxima stuff.
