Front disk slide pins

Ok, i am going to ask a very stupid question, and i feel stupid for asking but, on the 1997 F350 CC 4x4 front Disk brakes, can someone post a picture of what the slide pins look like?

I am having a very bad brain fart and can seem to find anything that slides.

1997 F-350 XLT Lariat Crewcab long box 4x4. Oxford white with an ugly green. 133xxx miles. Hide away goose neck, banks turbo, exhaust, inner cooler, intake filter and gauges.

Slide pins went away around 94-95 in favor of bolt on calipers. Going off memory as I can't seem to find a good picture... The calipers have two bolts that connect the caliper bracket to the knuckle and another two bolts that connect the sliding portion with the pads. It slides along those two bolts rather than pins.

Like JSchuricht said, no pins on the 95-97 axles

These are the pins for a 94 and OLDER truck

Actually, those "bolts" are the slide pins. They're not bolts in that they don't hold the caliper in place by way of the threads. They just happen to be a helluva lot easier to maintain than the old flat pins.
