Hey all,
I forgot to post this the other day. Is it normal to have play in the caliper? Meaning...I was painting mine the other day (while attached to the car) and you can kinda wiggle it in place. I tried tighening one bolt but it was already pretty tight.

Normal play?

Yes, the calipers are on sliders to pull in the pads on both sides. They will move a little when the brakes are released.

*iagree*

Which is why you pump your brakes after you put the calipers back on...
