    kinda like flogging a dead horse tbh

    your standard 256mm discs are fairly dire even if u replaced with brand new discs, calipers pads and hoses etc

    if this is what ur adamant you want to remain then new discs, pads, rebuilt calipers, fresh rubber hoses or braided hoses, full fluid change etc would be the best you could do

    i wouldnt bother with uprated discs/pads tbh as they are just as bad as standard spec

    you could do a 4 stud 280mm upgrade for anything upto £150 or even bigger discs if u so wish

    if u wanna keep things simple and the budget happy then get some standard discs and standard pads, remove the calipers and make sure the pistons are operating correctly (common to seize) so get a rebuild kit for £30 and rebuild ur existing calipers

    brand new hoses and fresh fluid and youll then have the best you can whilst retaining your existing setup

    give the rear drums a damn good clean and adjust the shoes if necessary.... clean and adjust the handbrake too if applicable

    Ive got 2 sets of front braided hoses if u want some - if so send me a PM
