and everything all together using the pre-existing caliper mount. no real issues, though it seems like grinding a touch off the caliper ears would help. previous solid axle calipers had about a .090" shim (or so, I didn't measure or look closely)

the SA calipers were mounted about 1/16" too high, the IFS calipers using the same mounts are about 1/8" too high. I'm not sure that I will change the mounts....but maybe
