I bought my brackets off Ebay for $55 per set. They are the flat plate style with DOM spacers, they come with gr8 bolts and lock washers. Some say the "bent" style are the best. Mine works fine, never had any problems.

I may have a say in that!

And you don't know until you try them, any of them. We were the first to make them bent and I am honored that others have chosen to also bend theirs, it is the right way to do it.




The top 1 is the standard 14 bolt brackets, the bottom one is a C&C axle bracket, we make 4 different 14 bolt brackets & 12 different Brake brackets total. All told we have over 3000 pairs in use, 2300 of them the standard 14 bolt, the first bent bracket we developed. Bending is not only stronger but less expensive to make, thats how we can sell them for $50 a pair.

SAK5, this is where I got mine and Lynne's. They have worked fine. We purchase for $295 but it looks like they went up to $335 delivered. Good luck.

Gravel maker, do you have sets for 14BFF (70") van axle?

Is there an other caliper than the Caddie that has mechanical
park brake?

I was reading somewhere a guy used the roters and calipers off a Dodge truck. There was some modification required.

mine came from sky's off road design, they are exactly like the kit pictured above. I chose them because they do not use the spacers for the flange

It looks like my 14FF came with a set of RuffStuff brackets. Does anyone know what size bolts I need to attach them to the housing?
