Brakes

So, my mechanic isnt certain but he thinks my steering knuckles are on the wrong sides because the brake pad isnt sitting just right. The spring and wedge for the caliper are up top and so is the locking screw. Is this the correct position? He seems to think they should be on the bottom but doesnt have a reason other than thats just how he feels about it. I bought a few manuals but they dont show any of those parts even in the exploded diagram.

Ugh, yep. I found an image from a diesel and they are clearly downstairs. Had they not already had it for inspection i'd swap the brackets myself but now I'm paying for it to be done. Damn the mechanic who changed out the kingpins prior.
