Do you have to have the clips that go on the brake pads when replacing pads?

Bought some of those high dollar Hawk brake pads for the rear dics on my 2006 F-350. They didn't come with clips. I don't know why but they didn't. Got them at the local Ford dealership cause the diesel mechanics there really like em. Long story short, the dealership is closed. the clips on my old pads are rusty and trashed, and it seems nobody sells just the clips. Do the Hawk pads not need the clips? Is that why they don't come with clips? Help, gotta get back to work on Monday and truck is down. Thanks.

I used my old clips when I did my pads. I don't think it matters if they are rusty or not.

Yup. Got to reuse your old ones unless you get ford pads or some that come with them. I forget which brands come with them. However, I cant stand the noise of non ford pads so...

If you go to an autoparts store, Advance/Autozone/Napa, ask for a "brake pad hardware kit". Comes w/ all the clips for either front or rear set.

Hard to believe everybody has the pads but NOBODY has the clips or hardware kit. Autozone was able to order them for me this morning (sunday morning) and got them this afternoon. Didn't think that would happen on Sunday. Check this out, on the way back from getting the parts this afternoon the van quit and wouldn't start. That left me with 3 vehicles and none running.......ouch. Rough weekend! Got the pads back on the truck though so now 1 vehicle is back up and on the road.

The clips are a good idea. you'll notice when they are installed correctly they will cause the pad to retract slightly from the rotor. This is essential for good brake life and no brake drag. I find those clips rusted into the bracket all the time, up here you have to file out the rust from the caliper bracket to get them freed up again
