    If you're doing your rears then you could do with the tool to wind the pistons back in the caliper. You can do it without but its a right faff.

    Machine mart sell them.

    The pistons are threaded so its not just a case of pushing them back in, they need winding in mate. (A3 ones do anyway)

    You will need the wind back tool makes life so easy, and possibly a impact driver (thinks thats the name havn`t woken up yet ) to undo the disc holding screw. It may come undone without but its easyier if you have one tbh.
