    2C4DC0A4-3783-41B2-B0E8-2B90F1198A15.jpeg Hello all i have an 04 Jeep Liberty full discs all around I recently am in the middle of doing my rear brakes and got a hardware kit for it ,,,my question is why are there longer slipper caliper clips and small ? My Jeep currently has all 4 of the smaller caliper clips installed, however in some YouTube videos I see people with the longer clips ? , should I be using the longer clips or stick with the 4 small ? my kit also came with these two Brake Anti-Rattle big Clips
    Where and how do they go on there ? My Jeep never had em but it’s listed for my Jeep ? Sorta lost here if anyone can help pls chime in I’ve included a pic of the hardware kit

    Should all be the same size , compare with the old ones you take off

    Ye thatS the only thing I could think of , weird because I requested those small clips to begin with as it was an option but then told me they can’t get it I have to buy the whole kit , oh well worked out , :) regardless
