    front is straight forward push the piston back type, as for what type that will depend on year and engine size I would have thought.

    Best bet buy all three and then get them to refund you the two you do not use most good shops will do that.

    no worries the audis are so damm easy to work on compared to fords its unreal , it makes ford look complicated

    although some bloody arse monkey f**ker excuse my french has bodged the caliper carrier so ive had to buy one from a scrappy in dorset after ringing round for ages, the lower bolt to undo the caliper would undo but when you fit it back up it was out by 5mm and wouldnt budge for love nor money, even with a good feckin clout with a hammer ! so iam carless now till tuesday when it arrives !

    other from that its a joy to work on and so easy, the coilovers will be nice to fit too compared to ford too
