I use real nice serrated flange bolts that are 1-1/4" long, but I use 1/8" thick washers under the caliper mounting bolts. That gets you the ideal 1-1/8" length. 1-1/8" bolts are hard to find at a good price.

Ace is the place to rape your face. Like 15$ for all the hardware. Wilco farm is my favorite. You buy grade 8 by the lb.

I found 1.25" non serated flange bolts for 1.15 compared to ace's $1.70 shenanigans.

I bought all four, they have no more. Fckin' fantastic.

At least you realized you bought 400. I would have bought 4 thinking they were 23 each

For all of you small garaged jealous people. I have now emptied 2 pickup loads of stuff (8 foot bed) into my garage. And still have room for the truck and Miata. And extra space.

You go to hell, sir!

Mostly because I know EXACTLY how big that pickup actually is. I don't think my dentside would fit in my garage if it were empty.

Well, either I suck at it or the tse lines I got were ****. One of the tapers cracked, and I'm **** out of luck. Now I have to bleed stock calipers, ******* ****.

Be gentle as hell with those *******.

Yeah, the 3an taper seat cracked. The entire line is toast, the adapter in the caliper is alright.

Damn I've never heard of that failure on a AN fitting before. I always figured the threads would strip before that happened! How tight were you torquing it?

Yeah, I've never broke an AN fitting like this before. I think the brake line was defective, because I wasn't on it all that hard, just a little stubby 11mm wrench, nothing crazy.
