I have possibly a very dumb question.
When I converted my car to discs from drums, I used a secondhand disc setup. I replaced the ball joints, wheel bearings, pads, and CV joints, but I retained the discs that were provided as they were thicker than the minimum thickness. Since then, I purchased new discs from Minispares, and this past weekend I decided to fit the new discs.
The pads had closed up to the old disc, so when I fitted the new discs, I needed to force the caliper over the discs by lightly tapping the caliper with a rubber mallet.
I was wondering how long the pads would rub against the discs and after roughly how many kilometres of driving the rubbing sounds would subside? Generally, noises coming from the wheels and suspension make me very uncomfortable.
Thanks for the assistance.
