Brake Caliper Stiffening Kit ~ How To Install and How it Works

How to install Tyrol Brake stiffening kit on MK4 R32. This Brake Stiffening kit prevents the caliper flex inherent in the stock rubber design. This flex leads to uneven pad wear and rotor deposits under hard usage. One note after talking with Tyrol, this is not meant to change pedal feel. If you experience any change in pedal feel, that is an added bonus. The kit is very simply meant to apply more even brake pressure with less flex in the caliper.

This DIY is pretty straight froward and requires only some basic hand tools. I have listed some tools below if you find you are missing anything. Be sure to follow the rest of the R32 restoration and rehab.
