    XTR Disc Brake Pad springs

    Are the XTR springs that hold the disc brake pads the same as the ones for XT pads? The pics look similar. Does anyone have 2 XTR springs they want to get rid of cheaply? or if you have a used set of disc pads (frt and rear) + springs ... let me know:
    - what you have and how much you want
    - your location (city and major area or intersection)

    XT's caliper are the 4 piston type (M755)

    I guess i should have mentioned that my XT are the older 4 piston type (M755) that use this type of pad (see pic)

    Just a heads up.

    I have noticed that the newer XTR return springs are much thicker than the 03 models. I'd try to find the newer ones. I think it's their attempt to fix the sticking pistons.

    I got springs with a set of pads I bought once. You might try that angle. Search around.

    Those don't use the same XTR springs.
