Friend of mine has just replaced a pair of 7.9" or 7.5" with calipers bought from DSN. The nipples are very long and catch the lower suspension on full lock. Anyone know if there are short or angled nipples available?

Yup nipples on top or the brakes will not bleed correctly and you will suffer very spongy brakes.

Don't know about DSN calipers but my 7.9" KAD'S have nipples top and bottom so they can be run left and right handed.

Well the OP needs to let us know exactly what brakes he bought. Are they 4 pots, standard callipers etc. If its a standard calliper with one bleed nipple then it must be fitted uppermost.

Didn't know that they weren't handed. Never done them on a mini. Thanks.
