Factory brake calipers slide on guide pins through rubber bushings. This design is adequate and widely used from the factory by Audi/VW.

For more precise braking, bronze bushings and 304 stainless steel guide pins allow for a more positive feel at the pedal and more even pad wear.

ECS Performance Caliper Guide Bushings are C544 bronze to complement anti-seize, providing additional lubrication - all of which is held in place by an integrated o-ring and dust cap.

Working in concert with new stainless steel guide pins allows for a much longer service life and less maintenance.

What about rear calipers? Those pins tend to either seize (in the NE) or dry out / wear out and rattle (in the SW).

What about rear calipers? Those pins tend to either seize (in the NE) or dry out / wear out and rattle (in the SW).

The rears seize/dry up due to the rubber grommet failing. Once the seal is broken that allows moisture and road debris to enter the slide pin and cavity. Which in turn gums it up or allows grease to escape.

Unfortunately, these caliper bushings will not work in that application. The best thing to keep the rears from seizing up is to be sure the rubber grommets are in good shape. With these vehicles getting older and higher miles it would be a good idea to check those once a year and replace/service the slide pins for good measure if you notice any deterioration.

Are the slide pins even available?

Seems like for B5 they were not available separately from the carrier. B6 models had them available. I'm not sure if they would work or not.

Either way B5 carriers are pretty inexpensive.

Wagner and TRW make them, but I'll do my own out of stainless. Thx.
