Somehow this little centering post on the caliper of my rear J7 snapped off. When I went to replace the pads tonight it just fell out when I pulled out the pads. Is it necessary? I'd really rather ride the BLT tomorrow, but not if my brakes aren't safe. Seems a little unnecessary to me - the pads still go in okay and appear to be centered since they also have the spring to keep them fairly centered. Am I taking a risk riding it this way?
BTW: On the busted centering post it appears to be just a little plastic sleeve that holds it in place. I'm surprised these don't just melt off.
