    ^ yeap, using caliper bracket from the 2017 would be a key here. I think most wreckers have calipers come with a caliper bracket either way.

    I didn't know there was a separate caliper support bracket. I had been under the assumption it was mounted directly to the strut tower. I haven't looked into the mounting assembly yet since I can't even get the parts till this weekend. Hopefully it'll be a bit warmer than it has been for when I pull it all apart.

    Sorry I kinda fell off the face of the earth there. My trucks been giving me issues that I've been busy trying to fix so I haven't gotten around to the mirage yet. I hope to get back to it soon but my truck is a priority. I'll let you all know when I get to it but it might take a week or two depending on what happens with the pickup.
