New after-market pads did not have the small stainless steel clips to place on the ends of the pads. These clips ride on the disc brake caliper bracket. I have 4 clips from my replaced pads but need 8 clips [2 clips per brake pad]. I have not found a supplier [including ford] that will sell the clips. However ford supplies the clips with new brake pads.
1. Are these clips important?
2. Do you have a suggested supplier?
3. Should the old clips be used on new pads?

  1. If you have the old ones, I would just use those.
    About the only way to get new ones is to get them with your pads.

    You do not have to use these clips in order for the vehicles brakes to operate and stop the car. These are commonly referred to as “Anti-Rattle” clips. I would grease the slides good, install the pads and test drive it. Later if you find you hear a rattle(not likely) you can buy pads that have the clips the next time you want to replace the brake pads.
