I recently replaced OEM brakes with Performance Friction brake pads.
I left the pad guides out because they just did not seem to fit with
the new pads.
Everything works well,the M + W clips are in securely,and the car
stops fine without any noises or vibrations.
Is it OK to run the car like this?
Is there any serious safety concerns by not running the pad guides?
Do you mean caliper pins?
You call the M & W springs "clips", so I'm not sure what you mean by
You may get away w/o shims, except for some noise & corrosion, but not
w/o much else.
