    Brian,

    Do you think it makes a difference where the caliper is located?

    I notice that yours is substantially "clocked" up compared to where mine ended up being.....Your's looks to be in about the 11 o'clock position, mine are at about 9 o'clock....?

    Dunno if it make a difference in braking, but might have some issues when it comes to bleeding the brakes.

    Because there are only 4 holes in the bracket, it would seem that there are only ways to install the bracket. In reality, you can also "flip" the bracket too, which means there are a total of 8 ways the bracket can be bolted to the axle tube. This is what I found on mine anyways....

    Its purrrdy. Do you think there will be any issues with the rubber brake line when the rear axle is flexing?

    Mine are about 11 o'clock. I actually wish I put them on the other side, about say 2 o'clock so they match the front brakes. But I haven't seen anything yet to suggest clocking them one way is better than the other.

    When I get my springer setup, I plan on pulling the brakes off and flipping the bracket the other way. Well see then if that makes them stop better or worse.

    I'm sure there would be. Right now the truck stays on the road. Those brake line were a quick fix to get me on the road. When the suspension is done I'm gonna half to get longer ones anyways.
