Re: Front Brake info

I got the parts from Oriley's also.

Except for the pins/bushings on the passenger side.
Oriley's was out of the pin kits, so I pulled the one free pin from each OEM bracket and re-used them.

I just took the passenger side apart and the pins move freely.

Still I pulled the bracket, put it in a vice, and slid the pins out to compare the bushings.
Eureka! The bushings are made of a different material.
The Oriley ones are soft and squishy, the OEM ones are hard.

To clean the bores, you could try a drill bit the size of the bore, or a brush from a gun cleaning kit.
