    Update on racks brake situation

    Thought I'd let you all know, as many of you were trying to help.


    It's fixed



    Front spring that goes on caliber was wrong way around so wasn't fully pushing on caliper.

    And pistons were slightly seizing.

    All back
    Now and perfect again! She was about to call scrap people last week that offered 120 as it stood! Glad I convinced her.

    I've never itched those front springs either which is a bit weird, but least is done

    That seems very odd symptoms for JUST that tbh... I mean I've seen people drive without them :/ they dont really DO that.

    I'm not saying it's not fixed, it probably is, but pad clips just dont do that really

    Bleeding system properly probably made the big difference
