Looking at front discs and pads for my van (2000 2.5 tdi - 88bhp) after advise during it's MOT.

As well as bushes and lower ball joints, it needed front discs/pads.

GSF's discs come in at 64 +VAt and their pads are 32.50 plus VAT. 96 +VAT for the set then.

Mintex brake box on ebay seems good value at 92 ish all in. Has anyone run these?

On a budget as want to replace rear springs with some HD jobs and then need to get all wheel geometry set up again once all is fitted.

I've just fitted a lovely new set of wheels with part worns and keen to fix this before too many miles with the camber out!

Thanks

Dave

I personally think mintex are rubbish - They kill discs and squeal like mad. The last set I used on a master I took back for warranty after 2000 miles.

I use Ferodo when I can.
