Some of the Chrysler calipers used an 0-ring under the upper caliper retaining clip as part of the anti rattle devise. Other than that I have never seen a caliper bushing on a first gen assembled caliper. How big are these bushings?

i had bent the tabs in the outboard pad to make them sit nice and snug against the caliper. what i replaced so far seem so work way better than what was there. at least now the one front tire to move way easier when it is off the ground. after i do the brakes on the other side i should be able to turn that side also. just hope the weather co-operate with me and gives me the warm and sunny weather i want so that it make working on my truck easier. also have to pick up some more brake cleaner.
i guess it might be but the picture i posted was from rock auto and they had that caliper bushings listed for my truck. anyhow i went to replace the caliper and pads on the drivers side today and the both looked almost brand except for a bit of rust. i just pushed the piston in on the caliper and put the old brake pads back on and bled the brake and everything seems to be working like it should. both tires now spin freely like they should when in the air. i think whoever did the brakes on this truck last must have been an idiot since the passenger side pad was about half warn on an old caliper and the driver side looked brand new on a fairly new caliper.
