    Default advice on disk brakes

    hi peeps! the front disks on the old bus sound like they might need changing, so i would like a bit of advise from all you technical types out there!


    1, how long would you expect a set of disks to last?

    2, would i notice any difference if i fitted drilled & grooved disks and if the answer is yes can you recommend any ?? oh and how much do they cost?

    thank you all and happy new year by the way!!!

    yorkshire peeps will see you on 22nd!!

    How long do they last?? Peice of string really.. Abuse them and they'll be dead in no time.. Guage the wear by the outside ridge on the lip of the disc..Be kind and they should do 50K.. Fast fit places will do an inspection for you if you aren't sure.. But beware as they often have a vested interest in your wallet..

    I don't know of anyone yey doing grooved and drilled disc's.. Drinky did his own for the Vectaru..Look the muts too.. PM him or Mrs D for a how to..
