Brake pad vibration dampers

When ordering new pads, I learned that NON - S Boxsters do NOT use vibration dampers on front or rear brakes. But S models do. All the instructions that I have found for this procedure fail to mention this.

Oh, by the way, my 2001 NON-S Boxster, which I've owned for less that 2 yrs, has dampers, (just like an S) both front and back.

What have you experienced? I'm tempted to reinstall them since the brakes were always quiet with them. On the other hand, maybe I'll just hold on to them to install if my brakes squeal wih tthe new pads. There appears to be some kind of adhesive between the pads and vibration dampers. Does anyone know what to replace it with if necessary?


2001 Boxster, GT3 console delete, lower stress bar, RoW M030 suspension package, painted bumperettes.
