    Default Best place to buy rear pads??

    Looking at buying some rear pads for my 1.9 but I don't really want to buy the disk/pad set unless there's not much difference in price to buying pads only.

    Any recommendations as to best value for money?

    I always get pads from dealers, as I find pattern ones to be different thickness' affecting fitment.

    Vauxhall will sell you pads on their own, as well as disks on their own.

    But it's generally better to buy both at the same time (ie, a brake kit) as it is cheaper than buying both separately.

    true, but changing the discs would be changing for changing sake as they are ok atm. Will go for the pads and buy a rewind tool this time around. May change the discs when they next need doing.

    What ever you do don't buy cheap pattern pads.
    I learnt the hard way and suffered from jamming, squealing and a BIG tilt ( from me)
    VX parts if you like or EBC green stuff ( better)
    Cheers
