1982 911SC Brake Lock-Up


Vehicle Information: Model: 911 SC; Year: 1982; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 100k;

I recently installed remanufactured front calipers, overhauled the rearcalipers, and replaced the pads on all with what I believe are regularstreet-use semi metallics. The caliper pistons are all rotated correctlyas Porsche specifies. The rotors were fine, so I cleaned them up and leftthem alone. The car has stainless brake lines. I bled the brakes with aMityvac pump and used ATE Blue fluid. Previous to the work the caliperswere sticking, so I wasn't critical of performance, and I can't tell youif the following was occurring before the overhaul. My issue now is thatfar more pedal pressure is required to get the rear brakes to achievelockup--the fronts achieve lockup much sooner. This is especiallynoticeable on wet roads. Tires are new S03s. Is this abnormal or just theway Porsche intended the FR/RR balance to be?
