Brakes - Rears + Fronts?

Postby AndyAdmin » Wed Apr 25, 2007 11:49 am

Just been advised that i need new rear brakes on my meg, i have also been advised that if i fir ebc greenstuff pads that i need to fit them to the front as well...can ayone confirm this?

if this is the case i think ill just get the standard ones that i got last time on the front as they seem to be doing the job.

cheers

Yes I think you need to replace your front pads as well if your going down the Greenstuff route.
Make improvements, not excuses!

you would need to change rear AND front as having different brands of pads on front/rear would change the front-rear braking balance....or so I think 8)
