They were the correct brackets. It looked so odd sticking out that far.

When we were done, I took a 2 legged square and made sure it was perfectly vertical before sinching everything up. I replaced the factory nuts with nylon lined ones so they don't loosen and wont oxodize as bad in the NY winters.

Glad I could help, Scott

Time to put some Disc brakes out back :)

Mine was doing this for a while too. I got so fed up, I was in the truck going down a really rural road (my driveway, LOL!), opened up the door with my foot on the brake, reached under the rockers, and played with the brake cable until I heard it pop. All I did was just pull it down, up, left, right, whatever, just to get it loose.

Now I just refuse to use it. Kind of a habit, though, when I use it all the time in the Dodge.
