Re: front brake kit ? or just pads ?

I did both front and back discs and pads last year.
They were not Reno but from motor factor.
I think the spring guides were a seperate item. The originals were ok once you give them a good clean, they might be stainless steel...
I reused original bolts with a little thread loctite.
The front discs were quite reasonable priced but the back are more expensive, but they came with new bearings, ABS ring, new axle nut and end cap. Still half the price of gen reno.
Think the pads were Mintex.
Used a little copper grease on back of pads and guides. Keep well away from disc and pad surface.

Hope this helps
