    Default Front Brake problems

    So my front driver side brake locked up yesterday. I took off the tire and discovered one bolt lose and both my calpiers pins were missing bolts so i headed to the store to buy need caliper pins and bolts when i got home i took out the top and bottom pin. When i tried to install the new pins i came to find out the pin does not fill the whole so i decided well i got new bolts i will just leave the old pins in for now. so i attempted to put the old caliper pins in they did not fit either. so my Q's in does the pen have to be pressed in or wtf???
    any advice would be helpful.
    This is on a 2006 KJ

    I dont know the particular application but I have never seen a caliper pin that needed to be pressed in. You say you removed the pins and the new ones didn`t fit and you tried to put the old ones back in and they wouldn`t fit?? by not fit do you mean that the hole is smaller then the pin ???are they rusty?sand them down alittle and clean them up, they will need a little persuasion as it is a tight fight.
