Titanium Shims

Thanks goes to JimJim for recommending and helping me get these, and now I recommend them to you. I have used these on my front brakes for a few track days now and have found them effective in keeping some heat from transferring from the brake pads to the calipers. They have also prevented the dust boots surrounding the caliper pistons from cracking prematurely. The dust boots were replaced last year and are all still in great condition. Jim got them through TiSpeed, but there are plenty of vendors for these shims. They are not bang for buck but I think in the long term they will save you some money from not having to replace piston dust boots so often.
