    OKay on a D60, how do the caliper brackets mount? I know they go on AFTER the spindle but do the "hang" outboard over the spindle or inboard over the knuckle?

    thanks

    They go on INSIDE of the spindle and they hang towards the spindle where the rotor is going to be.

    The way I remember it is that it's the opposite of the 1/2 and 3/4 ton stuff. (with respect to where the bracket goes in reference to where the spindle is on the axle).

    Spindle goes INSIDE and bracket on OUTSIDE and the bracket hangs over the knuckle...
