New StopTech Brake Options for Early Porsche 911

Industry, Calif. (October 26, 2016)Centric Parts -- North America’s leading manufacturer and supplier of aftermarket brake and chassis components -- has introduced a comprehensive new program of StopTech Big Brake Kits for the iconic 1969-1989 Porsche 911 model range. The program covers the most common stock wheel sizes and model year variations, and supplements the comprehensive range of OE replacement parts offered by Centric Parts. StopTech brake components require little-to-no vehicle modifications and offer significantly improved braking performance, feel and modulation over stock systems, as well as reduced fade.
