Question about 1993 Ford F150 SuperCab
Don't drive the pins in too far, or it will be necessary to drive them back out until the tabs snap into place. The tabs on each end of the pin MUST be free to catch on the spindle sides!

Remove tire . With a medium center punch drive out slide pins at either end of caliper ( the metal pin with rubber inside) .
Tap caliper of rotor with hammer. notice how pads are clipped to caliper, Push piston in with lange C-clamp or channel lock pliers. Remove and replace new pads in the same way place caliper on rotor. Tap new slide pins into place so that they are fully seated in saddle. Replace tire.Check brake fluild level add fluid if needed, Pump brake pedal multiple times to seat pads. Carefully test drive vehicle.

heck thats easy
first put boards infront and behind rear wheels
2 place jack under truck at front remove some weight from wheels
3 free the front wheel nuts
4 relieve the rest of the presure from front wheels
5 remove wheel nuts and tire from spindle
6 crank wheel out meaning right wheel right turn
7 now you can see the caliper sorta top front
8 loo on the inside of the caliper see the rubber looks likee plugs
they are on sone models they are actualy pluged still
9 get out those alan keys unside the ruber sleve there are 2 alan screws righty tighty lefty loosy right? )
completely unscrew the alan bolts lift the caliper off the mount you might need a pry bar but dont be afraid to pry a bit
once caliper removed theres only 1 thing left break pads
remove old ones 1 at a time replace with same use break lube in the sliders not on the pads clean em out if truck is newer it wont take much heck if you want paint the calipers since there off and hanging free any way
NOW DO NOT BE A MORON RUBBER WILL BREAK DO NOT JUST DROP THE CALIPERS AND LET THEM HANG BY THE HOSES THEY WILL STREACH AND WEAKEN THEM AND THEY WILL FAIL UNDER BREAKING...
USE A COAT HANGER BENT LIKE AND S AND HANG THE CALIPERS OFF THE FRAME OR SPRINGS

they are to stop the vibration from the rotor to the pads to the foot pedal.
not so much of a shim as a vibration damper. most have a sticky side on them so check for it first before installing.
