We're gonna need a good well-lit photo for that one, I can't even imagine what that could be without seeing what you're talking about.

That part the brake pads slide on is part of the knuckle which does not get replaced by replacing the calipers. I would contact mrblaine of Black Magic brakes and ask for his advice, you may need new knuckles if that slider surface is damaged badly enough. Some have welded that area back up and/or filed it smooth again but that's an alloy so it's not something all welders could help you on.

Again, I suggest you contact mrblaine at Black Magic brakes (or email him at mrblaine@savvyoffroad.com) for his advice on the problem. He might even have a set used knuckles that are in good condition.
