    Should they have a rubber bushing? Which pin goes in which hole? Having issues with the front passenger bottom slide pin sticking again and again.
    Thanks!

    I can't remember which pins goes where off hand, but I had problems with them also. Tried greasing them. Got new bushings. Nothing would help. Ended up saying screw it and just a new bracketed caliper. So far so good. Good luck with yours.

    That’s what I’m planning on doing tomorrow. Did the bracket/caliper include slide pins? What should I lube them with?

    Got the caliper from O'Reilly's. Yes it came with the slide pins. They were already lubed so I left them alone.
