What kind of guide pin do I want? There's some oversized self tapping ones and then ones with a gold colored screw?

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, how do you have time to do it over.

pins and boots every pad change is a good idea. If it seized that tight, replace the bracket too.

The lower pins on both sides of my 2000 front calipers were seized. A pipe wrench, long cheater bar, PB blaster, some heat, lots of time working the problem eventually got them off. I'm amazed they didn't snap with the amount of torque I had to apply to them. Since I didn't have new pins on hand, I cleaned the corrosion off the old pins and reassembled with antiseize. Since then I've sourced new pins AND the rubber boots that keep water out. Now I have to go back in and do it all over to get the new pins in. I'm sure the lower holes are corroded as bad as the pins that came out so I want to clean them up back to original tolerances. Since the upper holes were fine, I'm going to use them to select a drill bit size that fits snugly (I have one of those drill bit kits that has more sizes than there are people in New York). Then I'll chase the lower holes with that bit to be sure the corrosion is removed and they are opened back up to the same size as the upper holes. When iron corrodes, it expands (making the hole smaller). I'm not drilling the holes bigger, just drilling out the corrosion so they are back to the original stock diameter. The antiseize will get flushed out with Brake Kleen and the new parts installed with the correct type of brake pin grease. I think the problem was caused by the rubber boots. They were deteriorated and letting water in.
