Are those 944 brakes? How did you fit the rears, spacer or get the rears machined? Where did you get the adapter to wide 5?

They are just cheap empi brakes with 205mm adaptors. They were already on the transaxle. I would rather have a set of stock 67 type 1 brakes so i could have my emergency brake back.

heres the kit your asking about though.

The caliper bracket is installed 180 out...not that it matters now. But that would have solved your spring plate clearance issue.

I thought about that too. But clearancing the springplates just seemed to be way less pita at the time. It works.

I really want stock rear brakes for sure once i run into a set.
