Fronts need the flexi changing but backs don't but remember the dust shield either needs bending out of the way or changed to the r32 one's

Front brake shields need changing also as they are much bigger

Got the brakes now and the lines from Hel, Need to order the front dust shields next. I got the rear dust shields with brakes so do they fit straight on or do i just need to bend the originals back?
