Caliper slider pins and boots

Have an 06 TJ. I need to replace the slider pins and boots on the calipers. Does any one out there know if the aftermarket replacements slide better than the OEM ones. My OEM ones are clean smooth and lubed with the proper grease. But won't move with out a clamp or pliers. Has any one else had this problem. And how did you fix it? Money is very tight and replacing just the pins and boots would be the most cost effective for me!! I hope! Any help would be great!!

Pull the pins out and take a wire wheel to them to get all the crud off. Then lube them up again. That should fix the issue.

There not cruddy they are as clean as can be! That's the problem. They just don't move inside the boots. It's like the boots inside diameter is too small or the pin it too big around either way it's way too tight of fit.

Do you think there's corrosion on the inside or something's broken? You should be able to pull the boot off and get something in there to clean it up.

No corrosion at all I've had the boots off. Cleaned soaked. Rinsed and when I put the pins in the boots they slide fine. But once the boots are in the caliper, and I go slide the pin in the boot I have all I can do to push it in. And that's either with grease or no grease
