I started to develop a vibration when using the brakes I've chased it down to the slide pins since I can wiggle the caliper around when tight.
I got replacement pins but it seems they are sloppy in the bushing/ female as well. Do they sell replacement bushings or is there another option?
I bought two reman calipers for the back - the slide pins were bad and a piston siezed. Fast-forward 7 months and the front calipers have bad slide pins, but I still remember that siezed piston in the back - so remans it is. My truck has a lot of miles and 12 years on it, I feel better that I didn't skimp on the part that stops an 8000-pounds beast, pulling my boat, down a 6% grade. I don't like those "ochitIshoulda" scenarios.
I have no problem with choking the wallet on somethining that makes it go, but might I suggest that you never go cheap on something that makes it stop?
Lets us know if that fixes the problem. I think i may be experiencing a lil bit of the same. I upgraded to cryo rotors and better pads but have recently developed something like you describe. Curious...
