Default caliper pins keep coming out on 87 F250

I replaced both Calipers with new ones and new pins and the Pass side lost both pins/slides???


Anybody got any tips?

Yup they get pounded in....They have little tabs to "hold" them in. I may just fire up the Wire feed and zap the tabs to build them up some.

once they are in there i would take a pair of needle nose or hammer and bend the tabs out against the knuckle some to stop them from sliding out

Are you putting them in backwards? The first time I did the brakes on my Explorer I put them in backwards and they fell out. I'm not sure if they are all directional though.
