Brake Caliper Pins

By Andy Y, January 19, 2009

Brake caliper pins attach the brake caliper to the caliper bracket on each equipped wheel. Using the pins as the form of attachment allows the caliper to “float” along the bracket, allowing even and accurate braking effort and wear.

Some brake calipers do not utilize caliper pins as a mounting mechanism. Instead, they use caliper slides, and mount the caliper directly onto the wheel knuckle.
