If it's the original mount, it's not the wrong one, I'd blame the new caliper.

Take some right side, left side measurements, some thing will not be the same.

Don't mean to argue; but no they don't.

Calipers and mounts are sold separately.

Not lately, Ray. Caliper mount came in the same package for my 04 Burb. I kept the factory bracket and returned the new one for the core charge.

That makes no sense, why would anyone need to replace the mount.
I've had mine off a number of times, unless a bolt gets broken off, no need for new ones.

So @bytem3 , I suspect your mount/caliper is not the right kit number.

Let us know after you get the new ones, good luck.
