My problem is,I didn't pay enough attention how the springs fit onto the pads. Got my new Powerstop rotors and ceramic pads in, and decided to do that today. Got the rear drivers side done,it was easy. But the front drivers isn't. Had to take the caliper mount off and spray PB Blaster on the pads and bang them out with a hammer. They were absolutely welded in place. But the springs are confusing me. Other ppls front setup is like the rear,with just the hold-down springs that are separate from the pads. Mine aren't like that. Mine fit onto the actual tabs of the brake pad,then bend around and the pad slides on top of the spring somehow,but before I took them apart,it looked like the springs hold the pad against the rotor? How can that work? Storm came and shut me down,so now I have all my tools and crap laying in the garage. Have to finish it tomorrow.

That dude sounds like a 45 being played on the 33.3 setting.

Several comments below his video attesting to that fact. I'm not sure he has the springs correct in the video,either.
