996 c4 break rumble

Inspect the brake assembly...any debris? Are the rotors wearing evenly or are they warped?

pads and discs are new so cant see these being the problem.

I doubt it is your ABS - does the ABS light come on when this happens? If not, then it is highly doubtful.

cheers loren

no the abs light dosnt come on.

another question please will a rear suspension damper and spring from a c2 coupe fit a c4 coupe

No C2 and C4 have different weight balances (4WD in C4) so the spring rates and damper rates are different for the weight differences.

Similarly the weight difference between a 6 speed and Tiptronic also require different suspension components.

It could very well be the ABS at fault and there will not be any codes or light. If the ABS sees a wheel speed difference it will activate. This often happens from a damaged sensor,incorrect air gap or damaged sensor ring. The odd time metal filings will accumulate on the sensor due to it having a permanent magnet and change the sensors A/C output signal confusing the ABS unit in thinking the wheel is measuring a different speed. Only a few KPH difference in wheel speed will trigger this effect and not set a code because there is nothing electrically wrong as far as the ABS controller is concerned.

Some simple points to look at, are the calipers, pads and tension springs, rotors and wheels properly fastened? have the tyres on the same axle, the same dimensions allowed by Porsche? are they or some of them worn?
