    I run 4.25" BS wheels and have no clearance probs with a 14BFF. I have never really heard of anybody having clearance issures in the rear since the WMS is farther away from the brakes. here is a pic of mine.

    I make these brackets and a friend of mine has them on his rig with 15" wheels with 3.5" backspacing and no rubbing issues.

    The two calipers for the rear that I bought from Autozone were different enough that I had to grind just a bit off of one of them.

    Of course I checked clearance on the other side and after mounting, I rubbed a bit of paint off the new rims. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif But, just a hit with the grinder and all was well. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I am using rims with a 4.25" BS too. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    can you use stock dana 44 caliper brackets for this, and does it matter if calipers are mounted more towards front or rear ?

    thanks
