Default In Search of a Brake Caliper Bracket

Hello all,

My Jag has been doing well since the last time I posted, but the time came to do my brakes and apparently my calipers are shot as well as the brackets. I have new rotors, pads, and even the calipers but I can't seem to find the brackets ANYWHERE! No luck on SNG Barratt, Jagbits, or any of the big names. We haven't gotten to the point of searching junkyards, but I figured that I should try here first. Would any of you guys know somewhere or someone who could be selling these brackets for the front? Thanks in advance!

Will

I recently pulled all four brackets and paid $20 for all of them at my local salvage yard. Be warned that you will need to bring a shallow 1/2" drive 18mm socket and your 1/2 ratchet wrench plus a 1'-1.5' piece of pipe. Chances are the caliper brackets may never have been removed. I bought the calipers too. Once I finish rebuilding the calipers, I will have the brackets and calipers sandblasted and powder coated. Good luck
