    Replacing sticking calipers?

    Well it appears my coupes rear calipers are sticking, they're the old bosch type so i'm wondering whether its easy to change them over for the newer lucas calipers? and if so, what would i need?

    you can still buy brand new Bosch calipers (or even fully rebuilt - essentially brand new) for around £50 a side so id just go this route if u were planning on buying new lucas anyway... if u went lucas then youd need new carriers etc..

    personally ive got bosch and need the same too but i have a brand new set of lucas i got cheap so new carriers shouldnt be too much of an issue
