front disc caliper to pad springs?
#1
hello looking for your advice on this a couple of years ago converted to front discs (long story short not too happy with supplier as npd would not ship to my mate who was in us on business as my card was not registered to his work address in us something about anti terror laws) anyhow they arrived and i fitted them o.k except rubber flexi hoses rotted out in a year!! so had stainless made up they operate ok and have definatley improved the brakes but what i seem to be missing are anti rattle springs/clips that hold the pads into the caliper housing so at the moment the pads rattle around and there appears to be to much slack before the pad grips the disc just seen a picture on here with someones disc conversion and lo and behold there are clips/springs holding pad in to disc at the moment due to this i am losing a few thou of movment before pad contacts which obviously i would like to lose where is best place to get these realise this my be a modernised version of 70,s technology and in those days you americans never used anti rattle springs/clips then it is a single pot caliper with holes top and bottom which look like there should be retainers in there thanks in advance cheers mickmatt

If the brakes are OEM style this may be what you are looking for. http://www.napaonline.com/Catalog/Catalo...cType%3aA)
