2008 Astra XE
Default Re: Hello! New Astra owner with a couple questions..

Indeed. The mounting bracket bolts required some muscle. When they did finally come out, they looked almost pristine on the inside, with factory blue thread locker still visible. The dust shield looked awful, though.

I'm happy that I went 122k on original brakes, but surprised that it was the rears that bit the dust first.
