If you are able, might be an idea to take OFF the Discs and have them machined at someone like say Midas? They will then tell you whether the discs are worth machining. You could more than likely buy disc pads cheap from Super Cheap and if your discs are not able to be machined, Super Cheap will have some available at a good price I am sure?

I agree, $440.00 seems a little expensive... :roll:

That's weird, genuine ones are still available and the aftermarket ones are too.

Yes Grambo, a good manual will help. Just make sure you put things in a container when you take them off and don't leave on the floor. :)

One thing though, might pay you to get NEW bolts to hold the calipers on, would cost you are $10.00 for the 4 of them. You can buy from a Ford dealer part numbers 2x V800233S100 and 2x V800234S100. Mo0st people don't change them and can run into trouble.

If you take your time and do what it says you should have no trouble. Do you have any mates that can help? Try reading through it first and if there is anything you don't quite understand, come back and ask. :)

Hey champ,changing dics and pads aren't very hard at all. Might as well just go slotted all round with decent pads like EBC Greenstuff. New wheel bearings would go down well too.Caliper compression tool and rear caliper rotating tool makes life so much easier also.Workshop manual is what first got me into tampering with cars in the first place.You'll be fine give it a crack it'll be heaps of fun. :P
