i'd like to know where you find big brakes that don't cost a kidney on ebay.
post it up, i like to learn any and everything that has to do with minis.
depends on what your kidneys worth. i was 780 for EVERYTHING starting with a bare spindle, Hibs, rotors, pads, bears, calipers, bolts, seals......u name it, its probably inculded in that price.
