Brake Upgrade


Vehicle Information: Model: 911; Year: 1986; Body Type: Coupe; Engine (type, size, modifications): 3.4 Turbo Conversion; Total Mileage: 250,000+++;

I was recently fortunate enough to purchase a full set of 79 930 calipers in great condition which I plan to install on my car. I already have 930 rotors on it (78-80.5 fronts 930 351 047/8 and rears 93035204501/601). I have a number of questions: (1) I have read Stephen Kaspars post in Q&A dated Sep. 13/04 wherein he says that The only way you will get the 930 brakes to fit is to change the front spindle and strut assembly. Yet, in other web sites such as Rennlist, Bill Gregory of Connecticut Valley Region states that I only need shims. Please clarify. (2) what is the easiest way to modify the rears to fit my 911? (3) Some articles indicate that new brake lines need to be manufactured. Why can this not be achieved with steel flex lines?, and, (4) Do you have any recommendation for the flex lines? Always enjoy your Q & As, Thanks.
