Porsche Crest WTB 951 brakes

I am looking for 951 brakes.

Name your price if you have any for sale and any that catch my interest I will PM you for more discussion.

Edit: can be 951 or 951S.
I have a front caliper already but do not know what side it is supposed to go on (the arrow was ground off) so those of your that have partail sets, apply within too!

PS: it is not really a big deal if the caliper is right or left 'only' is it? All I would have to do is move the fluid transfer tube to the other side and vice versa depending on the side it is on, ja? So the bleeders are still on top as they are supposed to be?

no, you can't reverse sides. the calipers will have a larger piston in the "rear" of the caliper body. If you reverse sides, the pads will wear into a wedge.
The Previous owner of my car did exactly that - he must have obtained a replacement caliper somewhere and put it in - it was backwards, and it baffled me when I saw the pad wear. It did still have the arrows however, so once I saw the arrow pointing the wrong way it made sense.

Thanks for the headsup! So from what you said I have a driver's side front caliper!



So if anyone has the right side, let me know your prices! If you do not want to sell individually still let me know your prices!

Ive got a rear set for $115 that works but has come corrosion on the bolts. Have a nice rear set for $150. I have a front turbo S set of calipers for $250 that has some corrosion on the bolts but was off a running driving car.

I have a set of spindles, hubs, and calipers from a late model 944 turbo (not S). PM with any questions. Thanks.
