Re: rear disc/pad change
Aye that's a great price for a full kit, cheapest I've seen
The pistons went back pretty easily on my car but they can sometimes be a bit tight to turn. I knocked up a wind back tool from a strip of steel with 2 x 10mm bolts (6mm thread) through it to spaced to match the holes in the piston, just a case of turning the piston while applying a pushing pressure to get it back into the caliper.
When working on the rear calipers make sure they are free to slide on their slides, you may have to remove the rubber inserts and clean the caliper where the inserts sit. The alloy calipers are prone to corrosion in this area which cause the rubber insert to tighten up on the slider pin.
