Default Rear Brake Noise

The rear brakes on my 1994 R model make a clanking noise when I go over any sort of bumps. I pulled the wheels off and it seems like the caliper is rocking on the post that holds it in place. Is this a common wear point? If I put my foot slightly on the brakes the noise doesn't occur so I think I've isolated it. Any ideas? I could either buy new posts or I have a contact that could nickle plate them.

im not 100 % sure the rear slide pins are replaceable, after a quick search im not seeing them for sale on advance's website. new calipers or brackets are not that expensive so thats the route i would chose in that situation. also be sure to check your suspension for looseness.
