    Does it matter which direction the calipers face, i.e. towards the rear or front, up or down....

    I noticed everyone has theirs tilted towards the rear of the vehicle and I am putting mine on tilted towards the front. Does it matter?

    Brent, you can have them on the front or back of the axle, but don't have them mounted on the top or bottom. You need to have the bleed screws pointing up. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif
