Re: espace front pads

you did get the correct pads for your calipers, there are at least 2 versions available of caliper (ATE, LUCAS. Brembo)
and you may well need a G-clamp or use the rear caliper compresser with a slip shim plate to compress the piston right the way back into the caliper.
(its that or keep the original pads in and use a big screwdriver/crowbar to lever them to open up the gap (the not so recomended way to sort it out)dont scratch the disc face!)
Currently in mord's garage:
