I am in the midst of replacing the rear rotors and pads on my 1998 Vulcan. When I took everything apart, I noticed that there were no anti-rattle clips. So, I went to NAPA in search of some, and they tried to sell me one of these for either side:



Now, I've done a few brake jobs in the past on other vehicles, but I've never seen such a "caliper hardware kit." Where would this one (not two?) clip go? And what about the two rubber boots? Yes, the sliders (housing bolts) have boots where they meet the caliper bracket, but I don't see any other place(s) in need of rubber boots.

On the NAPA website, this part (#83113) IS listed as being for the 1998 Taurus. I'm confused. Any guidance available?

Thanks!
Mark

The boots are for the slider pins, the 'clip' is probably a squealer, the taurus brakepads dont come with a squealer to let you know the pads are dying.

That clip mounts on the caliper in the centre where the opening is. There are springs on the pads and they ride against that clip.
