    Default I need old pads please

    Hi peoples, as the title says, I need a couple of old rear pads from a 3.2 GSI, I am happy to pay postage for them. The reason for this is, I bought second hand calipers for a GSI all round but they were not sure of what year it came from and the part numbers are different, so if I can get a few sets from people with the registration numbers then I can source the rear red stuff pads. All registrations will be in confidence obviously.....

    You've lost me for starters! lol

    What info is it you're trying to find out? I'm sure we can find the answer without people needing to send you pads.

    On the GSi it was only the front brakes setup that altered from 302mm on early ones to 314mm subsequently. Rears have always been 292mm vented from the start - same on all V6 and the 2.0T - if any of that helps.

    I have looked here and they seem to list different part numbers for different years. spoke to Chris at regal too and he spoke to EBC and they stated that they needed to know the year in order to get the correct one, but on the list it only states one part number for the rears but 2 part numbers for the fronts, 302 and 314 ones so I cant see where they are coming from....all help appreciated peoples

    I can't see where they're coming from either. All I'm aware that changed was that the read pads had a slight design change (around 05/06 models I think) where the anti-rattle spring design was altered and the part number changed.

    On the rears you mean? 292mm rears have always been vented as far as I'm aware.
