    I've got Mintex M1144 pads on the front and Mintex Xtreme pads on the back - they don't do MM114 for Lucas calipers, only for Bosch ones. But even with a softer pad on the back the balance is spot on.

    As for discs... if your staying with an 'OE' size setup, I can't fault Nitrac discs - they are by far the best ones I've ever had

    Thanks Ffoeg for reply.
    The idea is I'm thinking about making some chassis mods.
    I want better stability and safety. and breaks are the most important.
    Taking in consideration of bad roads I thought about Koni FSD
    Thanks God they are available here.
    But Do I need new springs too?
    There is also koni and FK springs. (Don't know what to go I don't need lowering BTW).
    BTW what is strut brace?
    My car is 1.6 do I have to go to brake upgrade? or pads are enough?
    I don't know about Mintex but brembo is available here I think, what do you think about it
