Project Porsche 987.2 Cayman S: Making Awesome Brakes More Awesome with Stoptech!

Howard installs the brackets that convert the stock Porsche ear mounts to Stoptechs radial mounts.  We had already disassembled the knuckle and removed the stock brakes when installing the suspension in our last article.

You can see the bracket here.  Most of the time, we take the OEM dust shields off but on the Porsche, the shield is minimal and is designed more as a heat shield to heep heat out of the tie rod end, the ball joint and the wheel bearings.

The rotor is next placed on the hub.

The 309 brake pads are loaded into the calipers.

The Calipers are torqued in place onto the bracket.

Next the brake lines are installed and the front brakes bled.


  1. Hi – Allan from Denmark here.

    Regarding your “Project Porsche 987.2 Cayman S: Making Awesome Brakes More Awesome with Stoptech!”

    We are planning to mount exact same StopTech brake kits on a Cayman R (987.2 – 2012)

    Could I get you to inform me the exact StopTech type numbers on all parts used for this conversion?

    My supplier of StopTech parts have informed that StopTech only have these two kits for the Cayman 987.2 : Front 83.788.6700.xx / Rear 83.799.0046.xx and these are NOT the same as you have mounted.

    Many thanks in advance.

    Kind regards
    Allan Boegh-Petersen
