i thought it better to start a new thread since this just covers brakes. for those that missed my broke brakes in my other thread...








heres the new brackets. i had the chassis guy at work design them and cut them out on the plasma table. i brought them home and welded everything together. they turned out better than i expected since i just gave him a cardboard cut out with measurments scribbled all over it.

Keith you really know how to lay down a bead. Great job on fabricating a stronger caliper mount.

Have you welded the tubes solid to the case? If it could rip off that initial mounting bracket it probably won't have too hard a time busting loose the factory plug weld from applied brake torque (which is generally twice to three times your engine torque).

Funny you mentioned one thing after another. Seems to be my problem too. Who knows we'll get there eventually. Tax collectors? secret What's up with that being a problem?

Wouldn't the ladder bars have to also rip away first before the plug welds?
