Hi, this question is about the floating caliper. And how is it assembled? I don't understand the concept of the spring. It is supposed to hold the inboard brake shoe to the piston but I can't seem to visualize how it works.

Thanks for your time

Keeps the pads from moving. The moving is what gives you brake squeel.

It is factory attached to the pad and snaps into the caliper piston
