These brackets are $15 cheaper than the ones on fastbrakes.com

Good deal!

Yea I was a little nervous about using 6061-T6 for the brackets. I mean Im sure they are fine. But After talking to some machinists, Design Engineers, and a Stress Analysis engineer. They all recommended I go with steel to be safer. lol. We have alot of engineers at my company lol.

Probally due to cost.

3' of 4140 Steel Cost about $45

I de-threaded my brackets a couple times, I'm already on the 2nd pair from FastBrakes. I kept having to take my caliper off because of crazy squealing sounds. After 6months of try different rotors and pads, it would still squeal. I went from Advics Pads & DBA rotors to OEM pads & Blank CryoStop Rotors. Nothing helped. Until, I cut off the dust shield. NO MORE SQUEAL So happyyyyy lmaooo.
But yeah, I've had that de-threading problem even though, I use anti-seize.

I just sent two brackets back to FastBrakes (Hasty) to get re-threaded.
Cheaper then ordering a new one for $50 lol.
