looks like your adjuster spring pretty much connects the pads together well kinda does goes at the bottom of the pads at the 2 holes under the hold down springs on the pads

no i think the previous owner may have, honestly i didnt notice them chipping or anything but now that you say that my plastic below the bumper is chipping and is grey under the black... hmmmmm and the plastic on my back bumper is just grey... never thought about all this until just now. how do they look?!

----------

actually i left for the store cause it closed at 6 before i saw the diagram and then just kinda put the spring where it looked like it fit lol but the diagram reafirmed my decision!
