New discs & pads for Saab 9-3 were excellently priced and quickly delivered. Discs fitted perfectly, but I discovered pads overhung edge of discs by 3mm. This also prevented refitting of caliper. There was plenty of excess metal on the pads, so very careful grinding of the metal ears of the pads eventually brought the pads onto the discs and achieved the correct (sliding) fit when the caliper was bolted up - took me ages of trial and error for fear of removing too much metal.
Brakes now work well - will check in a few weeks for any sign of binding of pads. On reflection I suspect GSF supplied right discs, but pads for a sportier model with the slightly bigger diameter discs... but on a Saturday afternoon with the brakes in bits, I was not going to start returning them and waiting for replacement.
Have used GSF for many years and this is my first dodgy experience - will not deter me from using them again.
