Where to buy 1986 944T caliper rebulid kit?

Where can you find rebuild kits for 1986 Porsche 944 Turbo Brembo calipers?

Thanks,
Randy

Pelican Parts has the following listed:
Sorry, but as of right now, there are no rebuild kits available for the 944 Turbo or 968 calipers.

I have not seen any on Ebay for the last year.

Thanks,
Randy

I'm pretty sure that if you look on pep boys or auto zones web site that they say you can order kits through them, and they are options in the search...I have not "talked" to anyone about ordering them. So you know JR

Brake seals for Porsche turbo brakes are sold by the seal you will need to buy 4 seals for each caliper. The seals will cost about $16 each. The last one I supplied was about 6 months ago so the cost could be more.
Contact KC at McKenna porsche he can help you with the seals.

Steve, how easy do the steel bolts that join the caliper halves come out of the Aluminium? Is there a gasket between the two halves?

I'd like to renew my seals if I can get them.

PepBoys lists them for about $12 per caliper. This is just for the seals though, not including the pistons.

Yeah, I was really shocked too. I asked specifically if that was per piston, and he said "no, for all four in one caliper". He still could have had no idea what he was talking about though.

...for $12 buck's each it's worth a look. (compared to $45 each w/piston)

In a daring longshot, I went to Pep Boys.
You are right, they have no idea what they are talking about...

Anybody know how to get ahold of Brembo?

How about just carefully levering out a few seals, and getting a (good) parts jockey to measure and match?
There HAS to be another car out there that has the same seal dimensions....
