I'm doing the brakes on the Astra in a few weeks. I will be changing the brake fluid for Dot 5.1 (because I heard it was good). Greenstuff pads will be put on the front and if I can get them for the rear, there as well.
New discs and shoes on the rear (standard stuff) and uprated groved discs on the front. I was planning to get some Black Diamond ones unless anyone can recommend any better?
A few questions.
1. How much is all that stuff and where should I get it? (Rear discs and shoes will be sourced from a motorfactors).
2. Are there uprated pads for the rear discs?
3. I'm assuming its not as easy to change the rear discs/drums as it is the front (which I've done before). Any tricky bits?
4. Recommendations for discs for the front and everything has to fit under standard wheels. No caliper upgrades yet.
