    I'm being lazy here, so bear with me - those of you running 1/2 or 3/4 ton calipers on the rear, how are you "clocking" your brackets? 10 and 2?, both pointing forward?, both facing rear? I know its just a matter of looking at where the bleeder screws are on the calipers,and how they will need to be, but I havent torn the truck down yet - still driving it and assembling the 1 ton stuff.

    from what ive seen everyone runs them tilting towards the back aboot 10 and 2. Then you just put whatever caliper will point the bleeder up on whatever side it needs to go on...

    However you place them, try to do so with the bleeder screw facing up. That way you can bleed them without having to remove the caliper. :waytogo:
