    Hi and welcome.

    It must depend whose pads you buy...the OEM Honda ones come with shims...apparently there are issues with the old ones expanding through corrosion and causing the pads to bind on the disc.

    Hello sayama, think the pads were ferodo, filed pads, greased pins red rubber, general clean up, thanks for advice.
