This setup is for boxster brakes on LP dropped spindle. The hub and caliper bracket are modified, but consumables (rotor, pad, caliper) are stock Porsche stuff, easy to find 10 years down the road.

First up spindle check. Ive seen all kids of problems from tight/loose shafts to wrong threads machined (go figure). In this case the radius on shaft wasnt right and the bearing backstop off by more than a mm.

Heres other side:

Measure difference

Put on lathe to fix:
