Default 98 Cirrus - do disk brake pads have clips?

Hello all,

Taking a wild shot in the dark here - this forum looks dead - just 12 threads in the last 4 months, half of which have zero replies - but, just in case anyone out there is reading.....

On 98 Cirrus - the steel rails where the front brake pads rest on and slide against - on many vehicles it's a removable caliper mount. But on these cars, it's integrated into the steering knuckle. So when that surface develops a notch where the caliper foot normally rests, the calipers stop sliding properly.

On many other vehicles, that slider rail has a small metal cover, or clip, to serve as the sliding surface, and it gets replaced along with the pads. But I've never seen one on this vehicle.

Is there such a thing out there as a Cirrus brake pad slider/clip to cover the slider rail? Even as an after-market solution to the notched slider rail?

'Cause I don't want to have to replace the entire steering knuckle for something so simple.

Thanks, if there's anyone out there.........

Appreciate the reply!

Thing is - the slider rail has become notched where the pad foot rests on it. So pads aren't sliding properly. The corrective measure is to replace the entire steering knuckle. I was hoping ther might be such a thing as a clip that would clip onto the rail and serve as a new sliding surface so that I don't have to replace the entire steergin knuckle.
