    Was servicing my brakes. The driver's side top slide pin was seized.

    Removed it and replaced the rubber bushing at the end but it wouldn't go into the bracket. Even when trying to reuse the old bushing. It didn't look swollen either.

    It only fits without the rubber bushing at the end. Do I need it? Installed without it now as I had to drive my car. Would the bracket be bad or? So confusing

    Did you try to grease its surface so it would slide in?

    Yes and I think that's why it was seized in place originally. It wasn't swollen up or anything. Looked identical to the replacement

    Btw my brakes were making a noise at low speeds and that's why I decided to inspect them.

    Now without that bushing on the slide pin the noise is gone as its allowed to move. But curious how crucial it is

    Ok so I managed to get it in with the rubber bushing at the end it required a little push. But now it retracts a fair amount. Is that normal?

    Cool. Wasn't sure because the bottom one didn't retract as much.

    What's a good grease for the slide pins? Usually use silicone but didn't have any and opted for dielectric grease

    Idk about what's the best but permatex makes a brake parts grease in a little tube that's what I've always grabbed
