Is that on standard suspension? May be my eyes or the fact I've not seen an r32 on standard suspension in a while but that looks high riding to me.
Could just be the angle the pictures are on.
Sorry guys, been mega busy with work for the last week or so. Yeah, it's all stock at the moment except the stereo head unit. I'm gradually working my way through fixing things. I did have plans to lower it, but I'm in two minds about it now.
Anyway, I have a bit of a conundrum that maybe someone can help me with. Here's the story:
I had brake pads and discs replaced by my local garage a month or so ago. Haven't been driving much for obvious reasons, and I didn't think to inspect the calipers myself after the new discs and pads. Few weeks after getting them done, I noticed one of the anti-rattle springs had fallen off while it was parked on the drive, and the other one was missing entirely.
I've no idea if this is the fault of my local garage, and I've no idea if the car even had the retainer clips when I bought it.
I bought two new anti-rattle springs and took the wheels off to fit them since it seemed like an easy job. It was only after I tried fitting them that I realised that the retainer clips that the springs fit into are missing from both front brakes.
The retainer clips look like the ones in this photo:
After spending an hour trying to find somewhere to buy these clips from, I've concluded that they're only sold with new pads.
Now here's the really fluffing annoying part that's properly stumped me: my new pads don't even seem to have a hole for the clips to screw on to. As you can see from the photo below, there's a grommet or something there and I really don't fancy trying to remove it (ignore the filth and rust, the calipers are going to get refurbed at some point).
Short of buying brand new pads with the clips attached, I'm not sure what to do. I can't blame my local garage because I've no idea if the previous pads even had these clips...
