Caliper Bracket Question 10-Bolt to 14-Bolt Swap

Recommended Posts

I have a 2004 Silverado SS AWD. Just swapped out the 10 Bolt Rear for a 14 bolt 9.5" 6-Lug out of a 2005 Vortec Max. The 14-Bolt replacement axle had drum brakes, so off with those and installed the backing plates/caliper brackets/disc and calipers from the 10 Bolt. Pretty easy swap! However the calipers went from being mounted in the 9:00 position to a 11:00 position. The emergency cable hangs a little lower than I like.

What vehicles could I pirate the caliper brackets from to get back to the 9:00 position. Wanted to stay with factory parts. 

Thanks for your input in advance!

Nope.

My best guess is that no one has attempted this particular swap. Still rollin with the calipers in the 11:00 position. Seems to stop just fine, might be a little tricky when I need to bleed the brakes next time.
