    I have the SKY brackets, mainly because they do not have spacers. They fit perfect. I also used the Front calipers from a 1975 3/4 Ton 4x4.

    My friend has the ORD brackets and they are good as well. I just did not want the spacers.

    I know they're not the cheapest, but I really like their quality...

    At the end of the day I won't be patting myself on the back for finding the "cheapest" brake parts for my truck. :crazy:

    I like the brackets made by Kert (cybrfire), a vendor here. I have bough two sets, and both were awesome. http://www.diy4x.com/brakes.htm He uses solid spacers in his kit instead of pipe.

    I second the SKY brackets. I used them b/c I did not want spacers. They fit perfect and were nicely made.

    The $300 kit isn't just brackets. If you read the $300 one includes:
    (2) 2 Piece Brake Brackets

    (4) Spacers

    (2) Vented Rotors

    (8) 1/2 - 20 X 1 1/2 Grade 8 Bolts

    (8) 1/2 - 20 X 1 3/4 Grade 8 Bolts

    (16) 1/2 – 20 Grade 8 Nuts

    (8) 1/2 inch Grade 8 Lock Washers

    Thier rotors are raybestoes made in US ones too, not the china ones that warp straight away. I didn't poke around enough, I know I asked them once on the phone what they wanted for just the brackets and it was like $99 or something.

    I have the azkickin brackets which i don't believe are made anymore, but are similar to the DIY and ORD ones. I have had no problem with them, but I would run Sky's if I had to buy new ones today. I like the no spacer thing as well. Great products and pricing:waytogo:

    tsm's old kit didn't have spacers,they added that to enable the use of regular chevy 3/4 front rotors. The old kit, which I have, used no spacers, and uses ford 3/4 ton front rotors.
