Does anyone have these fitted, or know where to get them? I managed to source a set for the front, but the rears are rattling and are quite annoying now.................

This common and been discussed many times, best option is to silicone the pads to the piston to stop the pads jumping up and down as the holes in the caliper are too big for the split pins

I've been looking at fitting the springs. Mine has never had them but the are silly expensive for what they are. As are the split pins. Found a few alternatives for the springs but have yet to buy them.

I think these springs worked out at about £1.70 each if I remember correctly.
