He's probably looking for more like attaching bolts or slider sleeves....... ....re, HARDWARE kit.

Man I have never bought that stuff in 40 years, I can always make the originals still work. Must be this forgiving Texas climate, it burns everything up but does not rust bad at all.

I preferred to always rebuild calipers myself but now they have taken that cheaper option away by simply not supplying the kits any longer. Calipers are cheap but nowhere as cheap as those kits were when fairly priced.

I figure it's easier than guessing LOL. Either those are what he needs with links to get em or he doesn't know what the parts are called that he does need.
