    Did you ever think about a price quote for your twin caliper mounts that I asked some time back? I'm still interested in some and ready to pay.

    how do you bleed your calipers with them clocked up like that? pull them off and rotate them down?

    Were we doing the twin standard caliper or like the ones I have on my crew cab? Which direction were we headed? Maybe we should go back to PM's. Kind of a hijack here.

    I used a power vacum bleeder for the brakes, you use a air compresser to draw the vacum u need, great tool for bleeding brakes.
