Caliper rattle springs, need help where they go
 
I just bought new brake calipers for my late 2002 Grand Cherokee. It has the akebono calipers. I got 5 rattle springs 4 of which I understand where they go, but the 5th one, which is very small, I cannot figure out where it goes. Can anyone out there help me? Thanks!

I am going to try to add a pic of the 5th clip. It should be on the left of the caliper. Notice it is quite a bit smaller than the ones on the caliper. Can't figure out where this small one goes....

I do reckognize the left most spring, it is suppost to be installed on the brake pad itself. There is a small indent on the pad, where it fits onto. When im not wrong it fits on the inner pad.

Thanks I appreciate that. I will look at that tomorrow. Although I thought all the pads were the same. But I will check.

Just checked on my car, and this clip is mounted on the inner pad at the lower side. The pads are indeed identical, and they have all an indent at both ends, here the clip will fit.

I've had a rotational "squeel" from my left front ever since I had new brakes installed. This spring is installed on the outer pad on upper side. Would this be the cause of the squeel. The noise happens at 30mph and above, drive train speed related.
