    The calipers are the same, but the brackets are different so it holds the caliper at the correct distance form the hub.

    At present on the 288 "oddity", does the pad make full contact with the disc? if yes, then you'll need a new bracket, when you refit the 308's.

    Any piccies of the offending item?

    no piccies (cam on the blink)
    pad is full on disc so it must have a 288 bracket on as well!
