Yes, or it should be. If it's missing you'll have to buy a brake hardware kit. Comes with the springs and shims, or at least it should double check before purchasing.

Wait? isn't the clip a part of the brake pad? I know there are three different kinds of front brakes. The early model's have that spring or clip and it slides over the caliper to hold it in line. I'm thinking the SVT's is similar, but on the early models the pads have that spring on them.
