Where to find caliper guide pins?

Anyone know where to find the front oem caliper guide pins?, problem is places carry only the bottom pins since they think the top and botttom are the same sizes( top pins are shorter than the bottom pins)

Any help?

Bottom and top guide pins are diff. part #s, stores that have them should know the difference.

If you're in a hurry your best bet is your local dealer service dept, otherwise tischer and a few other stores have them online. I used to go through 2-3 sets/year.

The dust boots are part of the caliper rebuild kit I believe.

I know they are different and part stores and online stores think they are both the bottom sizes, supposedly bmw will only sell a pack of each not 1x each

nope, I've purchased the bottom ones and the top ones separately several times from JMK BMW's parts dept (since you're local). typically the bottom one breaks first.

give them a call
