gadget Posted November 27, 2020 Share Posted November 27, 2020 Our original freelander has two identical steel slide pins on the front caliper, and the both move freely without drag. The newer 2005 freelander has a smaller lower slide pin with a rubber bush part way down it. I'm refitting the front brakes with new pads, calipers and pins. The new pins are TRW and the bores in the cradle are very clean, shiny metal. The lower pins have drag that bothers me. The rubber bush is dragging in the cradle bore. The pin is free to move in and out, but I don't like that drag. Is there supposed to be drag on the lower pin? If so how much? I'm tempted to reuse the old upper slide pins in the lower position and lose the anti rattle *upgrade* Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
