    Default Swapped caliper mounts left to right?????

    OK, so I just put new bearings in the front of my 06 Mazda 3 Sport. It's like budduh now. Very nice. I did the brakes too: old calipers, new Raybestos pads and German made Zimmerman rotors. Anyway, I was showing it to the dealer's service manager and he noticed the pads were not contacting the rotors flat but the inside edges of them closest to the hub was contacting and as you get further out to the edge of the rotors there was about a 1 to 2mm gap. Could I have got the caliper brackets on the wrong sides or are they interchangeable? It brakes just fine but it's not right.

    Thanks all.

    Thanks for that. I'll switch them around and see how that looks.

    Just an update. The pads weren't touching on the inside. The guy didn't realize they had bevelled leading and trailing edges and they just looked crooked.
