Those that have seen a complete seal rebuild kit from Porsche/Brembo can attest to the kit including four things:

-Square cut pressure seal
-Dust scraper or boot
-Hard anodized piston
-Packet of grease

More recent kits i've seen have Kluber grease in them. Which is basically the same type of Sil-Glyde silicone grease that Shaun uses.

This grease helps get the pistons into the bores w/out hanging up on the pressure seals. The pressure seals are purposely shaped with a square cross section to grip the piston and retract it a tiny bit after you release the brake pedal. That tight fit & grip on the piston swipes off brake fluid and makes for difficult sliding of the piston within the seal. The grease is a MUCH better lubricant for inserting the pistons into the seals versus plain brake fluid.

I got some Centric brand seal kits (seals only, no piston, no grease) for a set of 964 calipers and they were a real bear to get the pistons inserted. I totally whiffed on using the grease I have on the shelf (mine is a tube of Dow Corning 111 that I had on bought for oil return tube o-rings years ago) and damaged the pressure seal pushing the piston in place.

Another set of Turbo calipers done. These were the roughest set I've gotten so far. We ended up replacing every single piston. They turned out well for a very special car.

Yes, that's the 32C I mean.
Had to ask for my number after I saw a few members post their's. I did not receive it initially.

Window of my office-container on the construction site.
Too bad 32C never gained enough momentum.
