    Default Brake discs from Oz

    Am going to order the brakes below (hope they fit lol), however, as I've never changed any brakes in my life (and may well end up getting someone to do these), what other bits will I need, ie hoses/pins/brake fluid etc?

    Thanks

    (Only really need the rears but may as well get the set for the price I'm thinking....)

    Correct diameters. Assume they are correct thickness too (32mm front, 26mm rear).

    You'll need a new set of pins and anti-rattle shims too.

    Shouldn't need anything else, although fluid should be flushed every 2yrs.

    Keen pirice but no brands mentioned, so difficult to estimate whether they are any good.

    Hmm. I need new discs so this is tempting.

    I was planning on new DBA discs plus DS2500 pads from Monkfish, but it is a big price difference. But will they be up to the pounding that the OEM items can take when I'm on my jaunts up in the highlands.....

    Any idea of the total landed cost - including all taxes?

    I looked at these but had reservations about the Ceramic pads.

    V8, not for everyone but 10/10 for your effort.

    Wonder how many sets I can get in my luggage, could subsidise the annual trip Down Under!
