I can take a couple of pictures of what I did and emial them to you if that would help. I cut a few V's in the bracket and re-welded them in order to help change tha angle of the pull. You'll see in the pics. I think it will work well. The only thing I should have done while the axles were out earlier is install 2 longer grade 8 bolts in the axle flanges. There is enough thread through though.
On the hose brackets, I didn't have the original mounts to weld to the axle, just made my own. I had no clearance problems with the 17" rims, with either the shocks or the calipers. That might be because it's a 2nd gen axle which is 1 1/2" wider than stock. I made the clearance work with backspacing on TT 2's.
