Rear Brakes

Hi a quick question
What rear cylinders and brake shoes are people using on the type 4.
as i need to change a rear cylinder and fit new shoes as i have a leaking cylinder.

Front pads are they the same as T2 ones as these are low on the reading and one is binding.

There was a 412 LE on gid it 12k,
So the thing is how much will someone pay for it

412 brake calipers,

Hi I think the calipers on my 412 could do with a overhaul,
Is there a kit available,
Or alternative calipers available,
Wireless said there's a thread on here, but I can't find it,
Cheers
