FAQ - Frequently Asked Question - Disc Brake Edition

Question: What size lugs do I need?
Answer: Most brake kits come with 14mm x 1.50 studs pressed in them, so a lug nut that fits those, but in the seat that the wheels need, either acorn conical, ball seat or mag lug. Check the wheel manufacture for specs the wheels require.


FIVE STAR Reviews

Reviewer: Marc Sherriff

As to the installation of my brakes, and the couple of minor hurdles I had to overcome. None of them were deal breakers, just time takers. For future reference to make the installation easier for new customers, the first thing I would suggest is actually source, include & charge for a 19mm dual circuit master cylinder. This was something that I found a little frustrating, but in all fairness you did let me know this was the case. The next thing was the reservoir. I had to source one that I could mount out of sight, which I did under the steering box inspection panel, mounted on an L bracket secured between the master cylinder and the body of the car, so no new holes. FYI, I used a reservoir from a Porsche 944, which cost me all of about AUD$19.00. The hoses, and t-piece needed to convert to dual circuit were other items I had to source. Finally, a note that I would have to trim the brake pedal pushrod would have reduced some cursing whilst jammed under my dash.

The fitting of all the axle components, and calipers was straightforward, and fit was impeccable, could not be better.
The actual braking of the car since installation is unbelievable, it is the best braked 356 I have ever driven (not the only one), and better than most early 911s I have driven.
