Getting all the parts together for my bbk, F&R.
Bought sum refurbished TT rear calipers, allready had sum used ones.
Noticed the refurbished calipers dont have a spring on the back of the caliper.
The old used ones I have have a spring on the back.
Do I need to fit the spring to the new calipers?
They seam to be springy with out the spring?

You can fit without, but the spring aids the release of the handbrake, so if it were my car I'd transfer it across.

Correct name for the spring is "helper spring"....
You can transfer it it will help release the handbrake even when the sliders are sticky.
