You're not the first person to do that. Air goes up so the bleeder screws have to be on top. Chrysler has been famous for good parts interchangeability for many decades, and part of that is making a caliper casting that fits on either side, then they install the bleeder screw on one end or the other, depending on which side it's going to be for.
By the way, you shouldn't need new calipers yet. Many years ago that was a different story, but after 255,000 miles, I still have the original calipers on my '88 Grand Caravan daily driver. No manufacturer right now is having a problem with their caliper designs. The biggest problem Chrysler has on some older models is caused by a restricted rubber hose, but even that has a real fast and easy fix.
Also be aware that the master cylinder on any car can be damaged by pressing the brake pedal all the way to the floor, as in when a brake hose pops a leak unexpectedly or by pedal-bleeding. Crud and corrosion build up in the lower halves of the bores where the pistons don't normally travel. When you run the pedal all the way to the floor, the lip seals can get torn on that corrosion. That's rarely a problem on a one-year-old vehicle, but it's a real common problem on a ten or fifteen-year-old car. Professionals will never push the pedal more than halfway to the floor. I only do gravity-bleeding, never pedal-bleeding.
