    Brake Squeal/Spacer Question

    Last night my cousin asked me to get some SPACERS from TEQUIPMENT to make my car look better. Can someone shed some light on the pros and cons of using SPACERS? He did mention that after putting his on, his car's suspension has actually softened a bit.

    Finally, it looks like my brake is still squealing/squeaking when I apply my brake and it is getting a bit annoying and embarassing. A few Rennteam mates did mention that this is a known characteristics of high performance brakes, is this true? I know the SLR's brakes for sure scream like a cat. Actually, mine is minor compared to what I heard once when a 997 base equipped with PCCB stopped beside me. It was pretty embarassing cos his yellow caliper while looking good actually produced a rather high pitched squeak.

    Maybe I should go in and ask the dealer to adjust my brake pad angle? Or should I leave it alone?

    Re: Brake Squeal/Spacer Question

    Spacers widen the track, enhance cornerign but induce more tramlining, particularly under braking.

    Its a trade off between looks/handling and driveability.

    The Tequipemnet ones are 5mm so the effects either way will be fairly minimal. You also need longer bolts.

    Re: Brake Squeal/Spacer Question

    My 997 C4S has a set of Tequipment 5mm spacers fitted. There is subtle but noticeable difference in terms of handling - cornering seems more stable.

    The Tequipment spacers come supplied with longer bolts.

    Re: Brake Squeal/Spacer Question

    ERdoc, you recommend my getting it? It doesn't seem to be that noticeable. What about sports tailpipe, do you pros think it adds noticeable "SWEETER TUNES?"
