Id still like to know this also.

All depends on bore/piston size you want!

I dont know what i want/need or what the different bore sizes affect?

Due to my general busyness and too much to do I got the guys at ric woods to fit my wilwoods while they were sorting out the cracked spring retainer cap and doing my proper mapping. Interestingly they had to machine the pads down a bit as the brakes were binding and the car wouldn't move.

Anyone else had this?

I did have this but I was able to spin the wheel ok. so drove it round the block a couple of times and then they didnt bind anymore! :lol: ghetto machining.

Top tip from last weekend: If you have any spare allen key bolts from where the driveshafts bolt onto the trailing arms or diff flanges, they are a good match to bolt the calipers onto the brackets :wink:
