D90 caliper brake pin - cotter pin help

The retaining pins on my D90 calipers rattle like hell and its getting really annoying,
i think the cotter pins that retain the retaining pins are the source of my angst...

Does anyone have a cotter pin size they know offhand that fits and helps control the rattle??

Its driving me insane

Thanks

Dont the front supposed to have springs and the rears have 2 little metal clips per side? I am assuming you are talking about brake pads.

I don't think there is any way in the world that the little brake pad retaining pins (which are held under sprung tension)could ever make enouh noise to be heard over road and engine noise.

It can't be those pins or the metal retaining clips. unless you have superman's hearing. If they are loose and rattling then you have a very strange issue. how can the brake pad stay firm in the caliper when you brake and unbrake and have the retaining clips and pins jiggling around? sounds odd so I don't think thats your problem.

Check all the nuts and bolts under the truck. one of those might be loose instead.
