Brake pads front and rear - original
Posted 19 March 2012 - 10:33 AM
You all keep talking about ebc red or green stuff but if you put grippier brake pads on without modification. Would that not make the car dive more sharply than before? And thus handle less predictably?

It's a simple job just don't take the calliper off and then try and fit new pads with the piston still set for the old pads.

i just fitted Green Stuff pads to my esprit this morning, it took about 20 minutes each side including removal and refitting of the wheel. You just need a 12mm spanner and a big 'g-clamp' for pushing the piston back in before you fit the new pads. One of the easiest jobs to do on an Esprit. Just use the old clips and clean them up a bit.
Undo 1 x 12mm bolt and the caliper swings up clear of the wheel. Pop the old pads out, push back the piston, fit the new pads and swing the caliper into place and put the bolt back in. job Done.
