    Yes, the kit finally came! I'm planning to do the install this weekend (June 8-9). I'm actually following the steps from: https://micra-forum.com/showthread.p...-RS*R-Down-kit. It's a very good walk-through.

    I have all the tools I need (I'm quite certain... ). But the most important tool I got was my new floor jack (which I used to do the brake job). It is here https://www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/m...1070p.html#srp. Well worth it if you're doing your own work.

    Hi guys I'm new to the forum. I changed my front brake today using Bosch QuietCast pads. Had some issues with
    the diy. The outer pads fit well but the inners were very tight. As a result the inner pad is not flush with the rotor. There is like a 3mm-4mm gap. Also the metal support pads were the pads rest on seem to be scraping the edge of the rotor. Any one had similar issues?
