Hi Bill, need just a small bit of advice mate, you have helped me out in the past which was of great help, I`m purchasing standard boxster front callipers 1997 to 2005 ,( part no. 986 351 422 and 986 351 421) to fit to my 3.5 inch Bilstein struts, I have already purchased (standard front Boxster rotors) a set of 298mm rotors x 24mm , these callipers that I`m buying are not the S Boxster which uses 993/996 callipers, I`m trying to work out what caliper adapters to buy, everything is about 993/996 ,big red etc, can you help with the info given to buy the right adapter set for the above ,I have 18 inch rims ,so no worries on rotor size, if you can shed some light it would be great ,hope there is enough info .
Kind Regards Brett in Australia.
Bill, I've been trying to upload some pictures to the 911 tech forum and it isn't working. I have tried to do it with Firefox and IE but no luck. I use Adblock Plus with Firefox but I have turned it off for Pelican. No problems posting, just pictures. Any recommendations?
The issue revolves about which caliper the rear is
there are 2 possibilities
1)tt w/ 28/28 pistons
2) RS w/ 30/36 pistons
the tt setup will be heavily front biased, this was a safety factor when used on an AWD, ABS equipped car
I have the RS set on both my cars and it's fantastic
Most people haven't a clue as to which is which, see if you can get the rear piston sizes from the seller, they will be printed on the spyders if they are still used or at least see if they are different sizes(this will be very obvious)
