    Errrm, you would need the calipers and carriers too, but if the kit includes everything you would need then go for it!

    edit: just seen the link, you need more than just disks and pads if you are thinking of an upgrage, but if anyone is looking for replacement drilled and grooved disks they look ok

    bought the calipers and carriers off SRI-RICH, arrived on Friday, cleaned on Saturday, stripped down on Sunday and they are going to be sand blasted and painted, going to get some decent pads too.

    Hello peoples. Another question about brakes I'm afraid but Gonna keep all questions in this thread to keep it tidy. Done some more research on all round brake upgrade. Phone stealers today to order some new guide bolts to go along with everything else. £13.80 + VAT. unbelievable. so, had another thought, while on phone to parts man I asked him if the guide bolts on a 3.2 are the same as the 2.2, yes, Excellent. my car has only done 10,500 so gonna change them with mine. Now to the question, It says in the Haynes manual that you should change the caliper mounting bracket bolts after removing them, Has anyone done that or just cleaned and replaced the originals. Got a price today too for sandblasting them, he is also going to etch prime them all for me for £30, Well chuffed with that..... I wont put pictures up until they are looking a bit different to normal, after all, we all know what calipers look like.....
