you should be able to find the info you need on like the S12 forums, I know a few people have done it in them..... was it the sub frame that is giving you issues or the CV shafts?

I need to still get the R200 half shafts but idk if they will bolt to the hubs also is there an easy solution to get the drive shaft to bolt up but I didnít get to even try to bolt it to the sub frame yet so idk if it will just bolt in originally it was sold to me by a little Nissan dealership as a R180 cuz my current R180 is very very worn out

yea measure the side to side distances and front to back on the 4 bolts that hold it to the subframe, I want to say the R200 is bigger but I could be wrong. whats the bolt pattern on the stub shafts on the Maxima if it's the 6 bolt with 2 side by side then I think they do.... if nothing else I have a R180 out of my S12 that I will sell cheep since it's just sitting in the scrap heap right now, it's in decent shape could use a good cleaning.

I am putting an r200 in my maxima too. I bought a custom mount from a guy on one of the forums. He is currently running his maxima with the same mount I bought. I know other people have hacked up their stock mount to make it work. I have not done the mod yet, but from what I have read it is a plug and play mod if you have the parts and can get the mount right.
