awright? fairly newby here. ive got a 2000 corsa b sxi. ok problem im havin is that when braking the whole car judders and the harder i brake the worse the judder is. although u cant feel it in the steering which sais to me its something to do with the rear brakes. so the other day i changed the rear shoes but the judders exactly the same and to make matters worse now that ive changed the shoes, the brake pedal feels like a sponge. was thinking they need bled but i dont see how i cud have let air in to the system just by changing the shoes. any ideas wud be spot on lads. cheers

Sounds like warped front discs replace discs and pads, don,t know why you touched the rear shoes you need to get the shoes right upto the drums close as possible, good time to upgrade the front brakes me thinks.

that's a rip off price I only paid 40 for brand new disks and second had calipers, make sure there 2 litre ones because the calipers on the 2 litre's have better braking power.
Get yourself on egay or there will be a few sets floating around on here

What discs where they for 40 quid new, size, grooved , drilled, the link was just an example to give r40kyl an idea of what he should be looking for, I have also seen cheaper and dearer on the net.
