Looked all over and nothing comes up. I don't want to do the metric re-tap because I have to modify the bracket to accommodate the bigger hex. I think I am just going to make a new bracket and use the old Corvette bolt.

Why not a rear brake location if you are going to make a new bracket? Other than losing the dust shield.

I like your billet bracket, the stamped oem one is pretty crude.

I was tempted to tap to 18mm x 1.5 but I decided to re make or modify the aluminum bracket instead.

The brackets are for Brembo calipers. I had to change the rotors to C6 because the other rotor hat offset put the calipers back too far in the wheel. Looked awful.

Yeh, I wish there was a cheeeeeep way to get the stock calipers up/out toward my '89 vette wheels, with 2.5" thick wheel adapter in there...they all lost in space now....like to paint them Gloss black metallic, not that it would show all that much, but with the green car....RED/etc would look like crap....

Has anyone made a bracket to move the front caliper to the rear of the spindle?
