Hi All. I changed the brake pads on my sc this weekend. The hardest part was probably getting off the two big bolts to get off the caliper. I had to use a breaking bar. Compressing the brake piston was also a pain, but I eventually figured it out.
My question is about the brake pins on the caliper( see below in the pic). I put them back on but they are not tight. Is there a trick to getting them back on firm? Maybe I should buy a new pair?
Also, I saw on several posts that the anti-squeal shims are not necessary to put back on as long as you use anti-squeal lubrication. Is that correct? I used CRC ant-squeal disk brake lubrication.
Any comments are appreciated. Thanks! Lex
