Rear Brake, what is this?

Post by BIMWing »



I replace my rear brakes and a thin piece of pressed metal fell out while I was removing the brake caliper and I have no idea where it goes? :roll:
I'm thinking it's part of an anti-vibration system, no extra hardware came with my new calipers.
Any ideas as to where it goes? Thanks!
See attached photo.
