Hi guys just changed my front brake discs and pads on my mk1 mx5.under slight braking there is a slight clunk before you come to a stop? didnt do it before,i greased the slidders up etc and thought everything was working as it should.

Cheers Adam

i bought mintex discs and pads and did not come with the shim plates but the ones i replaced never had them and never made a noise. weird. They never came with the springs either does that make a big difference?

The springs help to keep the pads off the disc. You can buy spring kits from MX5parts.

My rear brakes used to clonk like I had a stack of plates in the boot. Silent since fitting the springs.

What was the outcome of this??

I've had a clunk from my brakes since fitting new disks and pads, I have the springs but there weren't any shims on the old pads.

Autolink want ?2 per shim
