93ZJ frt axle and brake questions

1993 ZJ Limited 4.0L, crappy all-time 4 wheel.

I need some help with my bro-in-laws, 185k, untaken care of, ZJ.

First. On the drivers side and on the top of the front diff housing there is a nipple. It looks like a breather, but on this jeep it has a plug over it? Then hanging alittle to the right of it is a rubber hose, that runs up to the side of the air box. It doesn't run into the airbox, it clips to the side and is turned downward. I see no other lines coming or going to the diff housing.

You can see said nipple here. Again it had a plug on the end of it. The rubber hose is also seen.
Anyone know what is going on here?

Second: Does anyone have pic of the stock front brakes? The drivers side makes alot of noise when driving. When you step on the breaks, it goes away. Everything seems to be in order, the pads and rotors have lots of life left. BUT the caliber seems to be really lose. Bolts are tight and I put in new rubber boots. Like its missing some anti-rattle clips/plates/whatever. The pass side makes no noise and I see nothing different between the two. I spoke to my local Advance, and they say there is no anti-rattle clips.
Pic's for clicks

Any input?

Thank you for your support.

is the line attached to the air box attached to the axle on the other end? The breather hose attaches to the pumpkin on one end and the air box on the other

The caliper should be sandwiched between the tire and the hub. If it is moving around the tire should also be. If there is play you may need a new bearing assembly
