Can anyone tell me why one of the two caliper bolts has a rubber bushing around it .

I believe that the front calipers are like this also. The bushing goes in the lower caliper bolt position.
There are discussions about this. Anti-rattle?:

I just looked at the service manual. I think it's to prevent squealing when backing up.

CAUTION:
When installing the caliper guide pin bolts (2, 3) make sure that the one (3) that has a special sleeve on the end is installed in the upper mounting hole.

As seen in this photo from my car, only one bolt needs to be removed to change brake pads. The brake line blocks access to the top bolt. It's genius. Some people take the brake line off but the slider makes that unnecessary.

Ive taken these rubber bushings right off when doing brake jobs due to some genius mechanic before me using brake lube that swells the rubber and seized the pin up, and have never had a problem with rattling or squealing.
