2 Rear Brake questions

Post by NextGen » Mon Jul 20, 2015 9:19 am

1 is ( due to the fact I adapted 914 rear Calibers to my bug ) I wonder if you guys know of another Caliber that is interchangeable with the 914 rears.

2 Can I get a real part number or info on rear 914 pads, Shims and Pins and clips etc.
On the net I am getting all kinds of weird part numbers and sizes

The Correct size of the overall pad will be helpful

I don't know of interchangeable calipers w/ parking brakes, sorry.

The guy to contact about all things "brakes" when talking about Porsche, is Eric Shay of PMB Performance. www.pmbperformance.com. I've used his products on a few customer cars and they've been top-notch.

Nate, I did not get to tell you have it worked out. I called Eric and the results were fantastic. He rebuilt them for the quoted $299 they worked out fantastic. Better then expected.

Thanks again.
