    Brake pads holders?

    Heya everyone!

    I was in the process of changing my rear brake pads and rotors on my '90 Teg and while I was looking at some information in the Teg Tips, I saw that I should have some shims? They were not installed when I've bought my Teg, are they really that important?

    If you don't have problems with brake noise(squiling), no need to worry about them.
    However, if you do, most likely shims will cure it. If you are replacing them, might as well install them too.

        you dont necessary need a shim if you get oem replacements... but if you get the cheap aftermarkets once... you will most likely need them..

          I've bought Raybestos pads and rotors, just standard stuff as I'm not a racer. Are these what you rate "cheap"?

            well.. that's what i use, since local pepboys sell them for pretty cheap.
            I definately need shims for those. Without shims, it's going to make noises..

              A friend of mine runs Raybestos on his Neon and they don't squeel at all. He put on some "anti-squeel" lubricant though.
