Re: brake rattle & squeak... fixed, I think

thanks for the reply! yeah, i was thinking about looking at OE pads...

Looks as though you might have! Haha now worries though. I'm sure I can source some at some point. Two other jobs take priority until then. Brake lines need replacing pretty soon and thinking of the stainless steel bolt kit from Shaw Stainless.[/quote]
