Well champ, the bill probably!!!
I don't know what they have done, but they did mention flying brake parts in from Aus so I hope we're talking seal kits only.
It seems all my woes were down to sticky pistons and I hope they're right! One or more of them weren't returning properly. Not sure how that caused the vibration but certainly pad wear and fade seems logical.
That being the case, then here's a list of things I didnt need to buy over the past two months or so:
1 x New Disc
1 x Set wheel bearings
1 x Head stock bearing
4 x Sets of pads
18 x Gallons of brake fluid
The good news was the front suspension, nought wrong with it. I'm afraid the bottoming out was down to poor setup. I only have myself to blame!
As a bonus, they found some minor stuff with engine. Valves needed adjustment badly as they well out of spec. Pots 2 & 3 were being fed treakle instead of fuel mixture which wasnt helped by the overgenerous fuel map I had downloaded from the web!
They say they've re-calibrated the injectors from 'cake mix' to 'fuel' but even so, the map was a bag of wank and I have had to promise never to be smart and try 'shot-in-the-dark' mapping again.
