5mm Spacers (Long with pics)

Recommended Posts

That was my point I've see kits with them and without them -- maybe a little too tongue in cheek - :lol:

Took me about 14 hours, but I finally get it. Frankly, I just wanted to use 'gizmo' in a sentence--almost drew a yellow box around the screws.

How to unscrew? it was impossible for me!

The screws are not held on with much torque, so they must be seized. Try to use WD-40, PB Blaster, or another penetrant to loosen.

As I recall the screws don't come with the 5 mm spacers either. You use the two that hold the rotor on.

I just put the 5mm spacers on and they came with the little screws. The car

hadles better with the spacers and it is easier to clean the brake claipers.

I recently purchased 2 5mm OEM spacers with bolts (eBay). Is there any reason why I can't install spacers on the rear wheels only? I have an '06 Carrera with Classic 19's.

Probably should work you are only increasing the rear track by 5 mm.

Thanks for the quick reply. What I mean is, does it do any harm to only install the spacers at the rear?

Thank you!

I put 6mm spacers on my rears (02 Cab). Rode fine. I got 2 more for the front so the tires filled out the well a bit more. Only suggestion I have was that Porsche recommends 38mm bolts, rather than 30mm for the 6mm spacers. I did buy the 38's, mostly because I'm paranoid.
