    It depends, some of the pre-face cars had a different anti rattle spring. Won't make a difference to the fitting but you'll need to use the correct spring for the caliper.

    How did you push the piston back when you did the discs? You must have cracked the piston

    When the pad came off the spring on the back of the pad was pushed in to the piston seprated from the pad the pad just fell out and the spring stayed in the piston so had a crack but he said should be alright but it not lol
