The spring clips that attach to the ears on the ends of the pads?
They go on the pad before you load them into the mounting bracket.

I'd like to know too, doing my first brake job on this truck tomorrow. First time to do a super duty set of brakes.

You do need them, and make sure the little finger on the tab stays on the outside of the caliper.
This helps pull the pads away from the caliper. Also remember to apply a nice coating of caliper
Grease on the clips where they ride in the caliper. I just had some seized up in my truck.

Yes they really should be on there. Pads will be too loose without them.

Clean out the slot in the mounting bracket they ride in and put a thin coat of a good high temp brake grease in there to keep them from rusting up and getting seized.
Pay attention to the orientation of the clips when you replace them.

Bleed brakes with fresh fluid when your done too.

What he said about the orientation of the clips. They can be confusing so take one off at a time, find the right new one and pop it back into place.
