    the inside of the groove hits the pad first.

    That's the way I fit mine. Be prepared for a clicking noise from the brakes under braking, I think it sounds nice now I've got used to it.

    It's the slots running under the pads which causes it.

    Maybe it's the drillings doing it on mine then, or a combination of the 2.

    My discs are Tarox Sport Japans and the pads are Tarox Fast road pads. Great combination which works extremely well.

    I think mine were torax discs, but im using mintex pads..

    Maybe they might make the noise once theyve bedded in, ive only done 3 miles on them.

    i replaced new front pads, calipers and discs today...

    Im still looking for some rear lucas calipers though, i dont want to pay £170 for the kit from Vauxhall. (thats including the brake cable and pads though). I've alread got the new rear drilled grooved discs, i'll fit them once i get the other bits maybe.

    You don't need the brake cable if you've already got rear discs, only if you've got rear drums. The Bosch cable fits the Lucas calipers fine. I've sold quite a few sets of Lucas calipers and everyone has used the old cable.

    Just found another set of Lucas calipers but already promised them to someone else on site. If I find another set I'll let you know.

    Mine took a few weeks before they started clicking, think the pads need bedding in for it to happen.

    Question Lucas

    If you could keep and eye out for me that would be great. You 100% sure i can use my exsisting rear bosch disc brake cable on lucas calipers..

    I was under the impression it had to be changed!
