Set on the classiifieds right now.

You have the 3.0" spacing lie the S/SC on your rear trailing arm caliper mounts right? You know the later 930 rears are 3.5" spacing? Just trying to help...

Yes, I seen those and waiting for a response. He also has them listed on EBAY for $1200 a pair. What is the real going price for a set of four? Yes I have 3.00" spacing on rear, I plan on having VCI modify rears or do it myself in machine shop. I really just want to get this project over, my aluminum S are pitted around seal and at least need to get the fronts on ASAP. You have any leads on a set here locally, I am in Everett. Jamie

Jamie, greets from the sunny Eastside! Got no leads, sorry - but you might try posting on the PNW forum?

On a '77 930, my understanding is that you have the same brakes that my middie S came with, so you have most of the same considerations I do, except your flares mean you can fit front spacers to clear calipers without fender clearance being so much of an issue.

Like I said, I think 3.2 calipers & rotors are cheap, bolt-on, easily available, a significant upgrade to '77 brakes and perfectly adequate for street use. Heck, SC brakes would be a replacement for your current setup.

I've been watching 930 brakes go up in price all the while I've been dithering for my own upgrade. Those calipers look in nice condition and the price isn't out of line from what I've seen. After all, that's what he paid for 'em... Shame you'll need machining to use the rears (just like I would). By the time you add rotors, hats, pads and a 23mm M/C, you're into that setup for what, $4,000 and some?

For that kind of money, it's my belief you actually have a lot of choices, all of which are better/bigger. If you want to retain 15" Fuchs or something, you'd be more limited.

It is a lovely day and I wish I was driving the 930, not working on it. I struck what I think is a good deal on all four calipers, with master cylinder and new front one piece rotors, all for $2000 shipped. Steve at Rennsport will do the machining to fit rears and I should be good to go for now. We will see how it goes at my first DE. Thanx for input, and I am sure we will meet eventually. Jamie

Porsche Crest brakes

If you would like to save some money and still have great brakes, consider just leaving the "M" rear calipers on, and just doing the fronts only. I just read in a newer book called "Porsche 911 performance" by HP books, where the author, Mitchell Sam Rossi, turns his car into a full blown and very fast, serious and expensive racer, and according to he and other experts, the rears only do about 30% or so of the braking. Maby upgrade the rears to drilled rotors and HP pads, and just upgrade the fronts. I'm just replacing the front pads on my '82 930, pads completely worn out, rears have at least 2/3 of their material left. Both front and rear pads are factory originals...
Just an idea... Craig

That can be done, but then you would also need to fit a brake bias valve for fine tuning.
