The only thing about setting the brakes up the "right" way is the bleeder nipple is on the bottom side instead of the top. Has anyone had issues bleeding them with the nipple on the bottom?

if the bleed nipple is on the bottom, it means the calipers are on the wrong side.
if you swap them from left to right the bleed niple will be at the top....

Troyman, that's the thing, the "wrong way" pic has the bleeder nipples at the top and the "right way" pic the nipples are at the bottom.

eitherway righ,wrong.. you will never be able to bleed the calipers properly while mounted with the bleaders at the bottom, there will always be a pocket of air in the top of the caliper.. so if the supposed right way is with the bleeder at the botom the brakes will need to be bled with the caliper not mounted to the upright..

Which makes a little sence and its simple seeing as its a floating caliper.

no rbs uses elgt 1 piece rotor/hub where rbm uses hub that takes a mustang 330mm slip on rotor which retains e-series offset.
don't have any part numbers for race brakes sydney.

You can pick up a c5 corvette caliper from eBay us . Not cheap . Or get one of a bf . Difference between ford and Holden would be mounting bracket I'd say

Can you post up some pics of which way your calipers are?
