Even though you installed new metal slides, you may want to take a close look how they mount on the caliber bracket. This bracket is made of steel and subject to corrosion. Check under the new metal slides for corrosion build up on the caliber bracket. That basically decreases the distance between the top and the bottom of the caliber slides. Too much corrosion may cause the pads to bind in the new slides because there is not enough clearance.
