Just removed, cleaned and lubed the caliper pins on my W22 chassis. Does anyone know why some of the pins are all steel and some are steel with what appears to be a polyurethane splined sleeve?

How did you get to caliper pins? Did you remove the tires?

The pins are accessible from the inside of the caliper. Therefore the wheels do not have to be removed if your only interested in lubing the pins. Required 18 MM sockets and/or wrenches. The upper pins on the rear of my chassis are close to the leaf springs and there isn't room for a socket and ratchet or braker bar. All others can be removed and installed with an impact wrench. I removed one at a time which allowed the caliper pivot on the installed pin making room to remove the pin and clean to mounting hole. Not a big job.

A couple of days ago I had a front axel seal replaced on my MH. The mechanic lubed the caliper pins at the same time. I had one each of the pins you describe. He told me it was a common situation and that there was even another type that had an O ring on the inside end.
