Nice guide, but I have a couple of questions.
Why can't I use copper grease on the back of the pads, when other guides recommend it?
I tried to change the discs but had problems taking the screws out, rusted solid! I have had to leave them until I get an impact driver to have another go. Any advice on how to remove badly corroded bolts/screws would be gladly received.
I also couldn't remove the caliper guides due to the bolt heads being corroded, and I dread having to replace the trackrod ends.
