the reason people are using the 300zx calipers and geo rotors is to get parking brakes on the rear for cheaper than trying to run cadillac calipers (which are similar to chevy truck calipers, but with a built-in parking brake).

if you don't care about a mechanical parking brake in the rear, then you can't get much cheaper than ford rotors and either chevy s-10 or 1/2-ton calipers and some quick brackets.

pirate4x4 has a big thread on the import calipers with mechanical parking brakes:
