Caliper pin upgrade. Where to buy?

Hey guys, I'm out of town right now and am looking to do this upgrade as soon as I get home.

The link can be found here: Welcome to guzzle's Front Caliper Slide Pin Upgrade Web

I can't find a thread where people claim to have bought the upgraded caliper pins. Can anyone point me in the right direction so I have them ready to go when I get back?

I bought mine at the local ford dealership. I don't remember exactly what I paid for them, but I don't think it was too bad. I couldn't find any reference to them when I looked on Ed's web site just now. But I might have missed something.

I purchased the upgrade from a diesel shop and found it to be a waste of my money.
The pin with the rubber bushing on the end will not allow the caliper to float on the pins and will therefore lock up and wear one pad more than the other.
I have seen them at the box part stores also.
If you put them on definitely make sure the caliper will slide on the pins. That one pin is a bugger to remove after it has been installed.

Good luck,
