IMO, shocks and original condition are not related. If you wanted to be anal then Woodhead shocks would be original equipment but I would not wish them on anybody. I would go with OME or Bilsteins.

Brake calipers and pads, the usual suspects...Rovers North, Atlantic British, TLR, RDS, British Pacificm whoever you like, just don't get them from Napa or Autozone.

If you need calipers, I suggest upgrading to vented rotors and associated D90 calipers and pads.

Do the pads and rotors just bolt right on? What else do you have to change?

I suggest you invest in a manual, it is a great help.

The disk (rotor) is bolted to the hub, the vented rotors will replace your solid ones. The caliper is bolted to axle by two bolts that require threadlocker blue when you put them back on. The pads for the vented discs are held into the caliper by two clips that are held in by two rods that are secured by cotter pins. The difference between the calipers you have now and the vented ones is a spacer that fits between the calipers to allow them to fit over the wider vented disks.

It is a DIY job but if you are in doubt of your ability, get a mechanic to do it so that you will have properly functioning brakes and the bearings in the wheel hub will be greased and adjusted properly.

Right, I am not concerned about the work, but don't want to start the job and find out I need something else. I guess my question is more...do the brake lines still fit or do they need to be changed, and what about the caliper mounting bracket? Do I have to get the D90 one or can I reuse the D110 bracket?

Thank you for your help.

The D90 rotors and calipers will bolt right up, ditto the brake line. Sorry I did not know what your level of mechanical aptitude was.

Follow-up Post:

The spacer is in the caliper itself to make them wider if that was confusing.
