I recently realised that some of the excessive travel of the foot pedal was due to the 'anti-rattle' springs on the caliper were deformed, allowing the caliper to float around to much & for the pads to push the piston back in too much when idle.

new springs helpe dhte suitation, p/n's in latter posts.
