Brake Tab thing hitting rotor

I have new rotors, calipers, and Fords pads on my truck.

It is squeaking and putting a small grove in the rotor. I checked it out and it's one of the four silver tabs that hold the pad tight into the grove. I took it apart twice, even switched sides, and bent it straight to sit more flush.

Still squeaking.

I bled the brakes twice, and lubes the slide pins.

Any ideas?

Is yours an early '99 or a late '99, because I think there's a difference between them. If not in the '99 model year, then a little later.

My guess is you got the wrong part #'s for your truck.

Did you compare the replacements with the ones removed?

It's an early. There is no difference between calipers and pads, just rotors and hub bearings. Which the truck now wears late model bearings and rotors.
