Default Re: Review 996 Porsche 911 Brembo Brakes Installed!

bumping for another question,

Is there a step by step DIY for the installation of this?
I feel like at this point there would be. If so please provide me a link as ive searched for quite sometime and have not found anything.

Specific areas of interest is wiring in the pad sensor



Finally a fitment question. My front wheels are 19x8.5 et 35. I would assume like Dafoe i would also require the 5mm spacer as well?
(from post#1 his was: "My Apex ARC 8's 18x9.5 et 35 would not clear the front calipers so had to next day 5mm spacers.")

Any brake install diy will do. Just attach the brackets to the caliper first and then it's same process.

Im doing it too, but in Spain is a little more difficult to find the brackets for install the calipers. At least I have the calipers, and the rear rotors. Im trying to buy the brackets and the front rotors on Ebay and Im waiting the four adapters from United Kingdom. I know that Rallyroad produce it too but with taxes it would be more expensive.

I will install it first of all and them I will rebuild it and paint in yellow like the ones of the first post. It looks great

It's the same as replacing calipers, just use the brackets from RallyRoad/P0lar. You'll need to snip some aluminum material from the rears. Just have some good metal snips, they'll do the job.

Yes, you'll need a 5mm spacer. I may have my set for sale, along with the appropriate length studs next week. The six piston Cayenne calipers are about 3mm wider than the 996 calipers.

After reading different threads I still have some questions...

I will be using rallyroad brake lines and front/rear brackets....I know p0lar makes some but at the time he is not available.


-front caliper machining 5mm or 5.5mm?? I can have rallyroad machine but the turn around time and shipping may be higher than my local machine shop.

-rear pad setup to avoid rust ring?

-recommended pads for aggressive street/canyon driving and potentially some light track use on a NON-DAILY spring/summer car.
