    When I first installed my D60, I put new pads, calipers, rotors, and bearings in it. Now I get a kind of clacky knocking noise from the front sometimes. It seems to be the pads shifting forward and backward against the supports and making a clack. Have any of you had this happen? Any ideas on how to either quiet it down or fix it?

    Did you make sure to reinstall the little clips that go on the bottom of the inner pads when you installed the new ones?

    There were no clips on any of the pads when I took them off the old truck. Any ideas where I could get them?

    The clips help keep a little tension on the pads but will not keep them from making noise. The shoes have tabs on them that can be bent in to make them fit tighter and not rattle or clunk.

    Okay, I got the clips but haven't pulled the wheels off. Should there be a clip on each end of the two inner pads -- 4 total? Or just one per pad. Also, does the spring tab thing stick toward the truck or toward the wheel (or is there only one way it will go and I'll know the answer when I pull the caliper off)? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif
    Thanks

    I think if I was missing that piece I'd be having more problems than I am /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    not necessarily im talking about a smaller piece between the actual piece that holds it on and the caliper. if its gone the caliper will not fall out it will vibrate. thank you.

    Oh, I get it -- the spring thingy is in there on both sides.
