    Brembo Caliper Owners. Do you use anti vibration shims?

    Any of you guys running these:



    Anti Vibration Damper 36mm/40mm. Porsche 986 / 987 / 987C / 996 / 997 - 99635108802/1 | Design 911
    Design911 seem to be the only place I can find that do them and they come to just short of £70 once VAT and delivery charges have been added. I wanted to try them this time round as the OEM Porkas have thenm fitted too their pads and I want to stop my pads from moving around in the caliper.

    I never used them on my 996 calipers, and dealt with the noise.

    I had a full set I never used, which I gave to Pierre, he has fitted them, and the noise is still there with DS3000's.

    Perhaps good for silencing road pads that should be silent, but as near as dammit useless when used with man pads.

    I have them fitted but only because they came as standard though these are on the Porsche not the Audi and saying that I have not tried them without which I guess is what you need someone who has tried them with and without but they are bloody expensive!
    Try Porsch-apart you may get some cheaper or used if they would split

    I like the term "man pads"
    I fitted a set of pads without them on a lads VR6 and the noise was terrible.... fitted some and... still the same noise.

    Brembo Caliper Owners. Do you use anti vibration shims?

    The Porsche big reds were made by Brembo. I used to use the oem Porsche textar pads and had the shims that stuck to the back of the pads and clipped into the calipers pistons.

    Not cheap mind you.

    I used to buy all my Porsche spares from type-911

    I've managed to find the original pads that came with my brembo calipers and they still have the shims attached. I've read about people reusing them so I'll attempt to separate them from the old pads and fix them to the new ones.

    I'm really not sure mate. I don even know the piston sizes of the LCR brakes. The Boxster ones are 36mm and 40mm.

    Unfortunately I had to rip them off my pads as there wasn't enough room for them on new pads with a new disc too. Need to wait for them to wear in a bit.
