A device comprising a connection plate having a first end and a second end and two or more spring arms connected to and extending from the second end of the connection plate at an angle and having a portion that extends back toward the connection plate, wherein the two or more spring arms, when moved during a brake apply, provide an axial force toward the connection plate. The device may be used within a brake assembly, which further includes a caliper; a support bracket having a leading end and a trailing end, wherein the leading end, the trailing end, or both, have one or more projections; a rotor extending through the support bracket; and two or more brake pads located within the support bracket on opposing sides of the rotor.
