Re: Front brake question
Straighten the pins out and then you might have to file or grind some of the pad backing away so that they can float freely back and forth. Many have had to do this as the stamped backing is not perfect. There are some raised places at the top where the pad contacts the caliper ( same side as the pin). This area on the pad needs to be adjusted on some makes of pad. They should be dry but should pass all the way through and have the pin inserted easily. If the pin does not pass through almost as easily as it does without the pads in ( because of the anti rattle springs) then you need to grind some more to allow the pad to move closer up to the caliper.
