View Full Version : Newbie brake caliper install question

07-26-2014, 04:31 PM
Replacing pads and rotors as part of my control arm and coilover project. When the caliper are installed, are they supposed to float and moving some on the mounting pins? It looks like the pads brace against the mounting bracket and the caliper is soft mounted via the pins and their rubber mounts. Is that right? If you grab and twist the caliper it will rock slightly? I'm only used to calipers where the pads mount to the caliper and the calipers are solid mounted to the knuckles.
