    Is this driver side caliper on my dana 60 on the correct side? I'm about to start plumbing the brake system and the bleeder position had me curious. Is it possible to put these chevy calipers on the wrong side?

    The Calipers should be marked "L" and "R" on the Bendix models. Check the part number. It should read: XXXXXXXX - "L" or "R". That will tell you if you have them right side or backwards. Can't make it out in the pic.

    haha, yeah i thought they were wrong.. I musta had too many rum and cokes the day I put those on. While i've got the thread started, does anyone see anything wrong with this set-up..

    Chevy Dana 60 front calipers

    Chevy Dana 44 calipers on a 14 bolt

    1-5/16" master

    stock brake booster (82 c10)

    Using 3/16 line to a T fitting in front and then the stainless hoses Offroad design sells

    Using 1/4 line with a adjustable proportioning valve to a T fitting at the axle and then 3/16 line down the axle and stainless braided hose to the dana 44 calipers

    Does anyone see any problems I'm going to run into? I seem to see a lot of mixed info on brakes.
