Rear 30/28mm

These kits come with everything needed for front and rear axles, no need to buy separate for each wheel, at this price point I don't think there is a better deal out there.

My experience with Stoptech dust seals on Brembo calipers hasn't been good.

I know they "should" fit. Spent better part of day trying to fit the dust seals on Brembo F50 calipers. Cleaned the dust seal grooves with Brake-Kleen using Q-Tips and toothpicks. Cleaned the brand new Stoptech seals squeaky clean.

Dust seals wouldn't stay seated. Properly sized and purchased from Dave Z. Piston seals worked fine.

Gave up on Stoptech dust seals. Ordered Brembo seals. New Brembo seals slid right in place and stayed seated with no drama. Can't explain why but I was warned by others and they were right.

Just my .02 worth.

Default Re: 996 Brembo Rebuild Kit - Dust Boots / Seals

more specifically im looking for the part number for the 40mm front caliper piston (the larger of the two).

i have searched high & low but i cannot find a good source for the accurate part numbers for them.

i see a full set of stainless steel pistons for like $160 bucks via one site, but i only need one and the rest would be a waste of $$$

Thanks for the reply but I'm not looking for the seal. Everyone keeps replying with the seals...I need the 40mm PISTON.

Again, I'm looking for the piston itself...NOT the replacement rubber seals. Thanks guys!

Everyone is replying with dust boots/seals because this is the name of the thread and what OP was looking for, however, replies 8,9,10 can be used for pistons, in fact reply 9 gives you the part number of the PISTON...
