Default Caliper rebuild service?

I'm pretty sure someone here used a service to rebuild their calipers ....remove from car, send away, it comes back nice and cleaned. I can't recall who does that work?

Anyone have a link?

What kind are you rebuilding? Common ones are often cheaper to buy as remanufactured.

Those are not hard to do once you know the little tricks.

Might not find good remans for an S2 at AutoZone.

The set is a little screwed up. I bought used and they have corrosion pushing the guide rails. So the pads need to be ground down a bit. At least that's how I remember it. Been on the shelf a long time.

As mentioned above, PMB Performance is the one-stop shop for all things Brakes and especially for Porsche. Eric Shea is a great guy and total Porsche enthusiast. My only connection to PMB is they did my brakes on my 914-6 and they are so beautiful I hated to put them on the car.
