Time for brakes, need help ordering parts

Recommended Posts

I'm going to save some money and DIY the front and rear brakes on my 2005 Cayenne. I'm confused about rotor size (I have silver calipers with 17ZL stamped on the fronts). Also, would like advice on which pads are best for keeping dust low and whether brake kits, like the ones Pelican Parts sells, are better than buying parts individually.  If individual is better, then please suggest good rotor and pad brands. This is my daily driving car (no racing). Finally, I would love recommendations for best online parts sellers. 

 

Thanks,

Mark

I have had good success using BrakeMotive. They are a seller on Ebay. I purchase their drilled and slotted rotors. Many of  their options include pads. I prefer to buy just the rotors and purchase better pads like Pagid or others. Most metallic pads will produce dust. Ceramic pads don't, but do not have the best stopping power. I used the rotors on my 911 and my Boxster with excellent results. Here is an example.

Thanks machster. I'll give your recommendations a look.

 

I still need to figure out the rotor sizes for the front and back so I don't buy the wrong parts.
