Right folks .... here we go
I need pics of brake pads (make is irrelevant - but mention if u know) from a Mk4 running 280/308s & Mk5 running 280/308s
The reason I ask is that Im due to do a 280 4stud conversion on my Mk4 using Mk5 parts....anyway thats irrelevant here
The calipers Ive got are shared between Astra H 4 stud 256mm, 4 & 5 stud 280mm, Astra H 5 stud 308mm & Astra G 280/308mm.... (Also Corsa C/Meriva/Zaffy) One would assume as its the same caliper then the brake pads would be the same.....
EBC for instance lists (for Greenstuff)
DP21183 for Mk4 280/308 &
DP21520 for Mk5 280/308
93181189 for Astra H 4 stud 256mm, 4 stud 280mm, 5 stud 280mm
93186713 for Astra H 5 stud 308mm
9192157 for Astra G 5 stud 280mm (or 9195145 aftermarket spec - presume this is just better material)
93173734 for Astra G 5 stud 308mm
**Maybe the pad size and dimensions are exactly the same but its just a different pad compound **
Either way Im totally bewildered by it all
I can easily get some Greenstuff DP21520 as these will definitely fit my Mk5 calipers....but Im just confused that if its the same caliper between the models then surely it would use the same pads.
Can someone please advise me here....
Irrespective of them being fitted to a Mk4.... the entire setup is from a Mk5 5stud (they are just being fitted with Mk4 4 stud hubs & 4 stud discs from a Meriva/Astra H 4stud)
Any help would be appreciated....Sorry for mammoth post.
