80 CJ-7 Caliper Clip

All,

My CJ has a click that gets faster/slower with my speed, and from reading other threads it looks like there's a good chance it's the anti-rattle clip on my left or right front brakes.

I crawled underneath the jeep today to see if I could find the clip/spring, but couldn't see anything. I don't know if that's because they're missing, or if it's just because I don't know what I'm looking for/can't see it. What's even weirder is that Morris 4x4 doesn't list a caliper support spring for 1980-81, but it does before and after (see here).

Has anyone replaced these clips on an 80 CJ-7 and know what or where I should be looking.

Here are a couple of crappy pics in case anyone can make sense of them:



Thanks,

Marca

I was thinking that, but would braking stop the click if it's the u-joints?
