squeaky 951 brake

Hey guys. I have a 1986 951 and my brakes sound terrible. They are very squeaky kinda imbarasing. I have newer pagid orange brake pads with slotted rotors. When the brakes are cold they don't squeak. I tried sanding them down, and putting disc brake quiet lubricious on and it only helped for a couple times. 

 

Rear calipers for 1987 944

Having problem finding anyone who has rear calipers for 1987 944, in stock.  Any contacts would be appreciated.

 

Brake caliper piston . . .

Can someone provide a source in which I can buy a front brake caliper piston. My right front brake is sticking. I replaced the brakes due to the right front brake pad being down to the metal while the left front brake was almost used. I replaced the pads and put grease on the caliper slides but the right pads were still sticking. I took the right caliper off again and disassembled it. I removed the piston and cleaned off the crud and filed it and the cylinder down. It moved freely, so I replaced the seals and removed the old brake fluid, pouring in new Dot 4 fluid.

ABS Light on full time

Model: 968, Year:1993, Mileage:130000, Type of use:Both Street & Track
Just before I put my 968 up for the winter the ABS light came on and the speedometer quit working. I have inspected the wheel speed sensors and could find nothing obvious. When I start the car the ABS light is on and does not clear. What would be your recommended trouble shooting path?I reviewed the past questions on ABS issues and did not find any useful information. I do not have access to the Bosch tester or the test plan.

In Sept. 2011 you referred to a " youtube" that would show the rear shoes, etc. I tried to get it and my computer said it was no longer available. Any way I can get a picture of what the inside looks like. As you said, the hole in the hub "ain't much" ! I assume the adjustment would be at the top but that would be a guess.ThanksJohn D

My parking brake handle has excessive travel before engaging. I think the car was drivin with it on for a bit. Can it be adjusted back to normal?
