    How much backspacing on 15\" rims.....

    ....to fit WITHOUT grinding the D60 calipers and mounts? Thought it was something like 2" or 2.5"? /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    I don't think that any will fit with NO grinding.

    I ve got 3.5" Barts, and I didn't do a lot of grinding. Some one here is making a bracket to fit 3/4t calipers on a Dana 60.

    With 2-2.5" you will probably still need to clean up the bracket a little bit since it was designed to fit the curve of a 16-16.5" wheel.
