Seville rear disc

What does the wire clip on the caliper's piston do. The ends attach to the pads but just barely. Is this for anti'rattle and can I not use. Thanks

If you don't use them you'll get some brake squeal. The liquid you put on the pads for squeal only lasts a few months, so that's not a real option if you drive a lot.

midsize gm disc brakes

Thanks for the reply. On the front I have 1970's mid size gm brakes that everyone uses. I get a clunk sometimes when I put on the brakes. I can move the pads by hand a little when installed in the caliper. Are the pads poorly made or is there some type of clip I don't have? Driving me crazy. Never seemed to have problem before last rebuild. Every thing else in front end is new and bearings are tight.
