    you can tell from looking at the caliper whether yours are Bosch or Lucas

    I can't remember how to tell the difference between the two, but a search should give you the answer.

    Bosch have the ridges, Lucas are smooth and kinda look like a oven ready chicken (from the top) for some reason.

    51 plate is most commonly the Lucas caliper.
