I wonder how much these added. These are standard on everything now that doesn't have severe knock-back problems (c-clip stick axle performance cars that take high g turns).
Prius has them front and rear.
Mustang had them up front but not the rear bc c-clip axle hero car. :P

Upon further review apparently the oem strikes a balance between long brake pedal, zero pad friction, and anti-rattle.

The drag racing boys love them though. Especially the NA Honda guys. Low drag entire corner assemblies for all da watts.

This seems like a great idea. How are they installed? Are they universal?

They work best with free floating pads. Your Jeep pads clip to the caliper on the outside and into the piston on the inside, I donít know if you would gain much. You would need to drill small holes in the metal backing to slip the springs into. The Ford F150ís I work on have these springs from the factory.

They are basically springy wire clips that go between the pads to help pull them off the brake rotor when the brake pedal is released so they don't drag against the rotor constantly, they are really easy to install. They are specific to your vehicle, but it's not too hard to find the ones you need.

They look pretty cool. I have disc brakes front and rear so I think this would be pretty good. I think this is what I will do after I finish my current project (making headlamp covers and partial grill block from lexan plastic).

Yeah why not as cheap as they are and as easy as they are to install. Also lubricate where your brake pads slide on the caliper bracket and clean and lubricate the caliper slide pins with silicone grease while you have it apart.

Just did the front brakes on the Fit. New calipers, pads and rotors. The calipers actually came with a set of these, calling them "retention clips".
