Replaced the front brake pads on the dually, it went kinda smooth. I had a hard time getting a slide pin out, when I did it had a rubber piece on the end, then the other side also had one but the rubber piece was lodged inside the bracket. Ended up putting it back together without these rubber bushing since they wouldn't go back in, I guess I'm okay, but part of me says get new slide pins.
Ford has a caliper slide pin upgraded part number but it only works on certain years.
Guzzle shows what to look for it could help you. Also it was my mistake but I learned the hard way. Less is more with slide pin grease. I used to much thinking it will only help more to reduce the chances. it didn't. It creates a vacuum and makes the slide pins not slide as easy out lol. I took them off cleaned them and only used a LITTLE BIT this time and whalla!
I know many are smarter than me but just in case anyone was like me before lol.
