    Default Different Pad Design(Rear)

    Just bought a disc and pad set for the rear axle and the pads that come with it are different from what's fitted. The old one that sat on the piston has springs either side and on top so you slide the pad onto the piston. The new one has a spring on top of the pad itself and nothing to attach it to the piston, not sure if it fits to the caliper as sadly I couldn't fit them as the rewind tool was the wrong size Anyone come across this or has VX in their greatness gave me the wrong pads. 292mm rears.

    Cheers Simon top man. Went and bought the same rewind tool that I borrowed and I'll just get one of the metal benders at work to grind the keys down a bit.
