so... something strange going on.

Stripped the rear of the car a while back, and just got round to rebuilding (new bearings, cleaned hubs, new backing plates and rebuild (not split) calipers.

I'd marked RR/RL on the parts.



First issue was when I had RL written on the hub with R stamped on the back. Thought - must have had an off day, and made a mistake.

So fitted the R backing plate to the R hub and fired in the new bearing, same with the Lefts.

Got to mounting the newage 2 pot rear calipers (car is a R180 rear so these calipers fit directly to backing mount - no extra brackets).

When the caliper with R stamped on rear ( i had it marked as the RR) is fitted to the R backing plate on the R hub (on the right/drivers side of the car) the bleed nipple is at the bottom.

WTF is going on. Anyone come across this before?

Ive swapped them round (calipers) and all seems well. Just strange....

forgive my lack of scooby knowlage, are the newage rear calipers leading rather than trailing? as thats the only thing i can think of that would make them work the other way around if that makes sence ?

Is that the wrx newage 2 pots?

I fitted the newage STI 2 pots a while back, i'm sure I had to remove the backing plate as the calipers were too big for the R180 98 rear hubs... might be a better upgrade?
