Now...

What do you do different if you want to relocate your e-brake to the rear wheels?

use caddillac rear calipers with the parking brake built into them......

not sure if posers bracket is for caddillac calipers or not or

you could install a line lock and lock all four brakes

Caddy calipers were $55 or so a piece. I'm a cheap bastard and will use a line lock if I just gotta have an e-brake.

The ElDorado calipers will fit Poser's brackets, but running the cables to the p-brake and getting them adjusted is not easy. Why would you ditch the stock LC brake, are you doing some TC mods?
I would stick with the Monte calipers and K.I.S.S.

It would be the GM Caliper, so i am Assuming the GM Dealer..

My Local Autoparts Place had the Bolts in stock.. Just bring in the caliper, and find the banjo bolt that fits

David,
Was it a Nissan dealer that you got these bolts from?

I went to the GM dealership and the parts drone didn't want to just look for a couple. He looked them up in the computer... They were like $3 a piece, but they had none in stock and would have to order them from an east coast distribution center or something.

I went to NAPA with the parts in hand and found a couple in a bin of banjo bolts.

Thanks m8's!

I have a GM bolt but the hole in it does not line up with the hole in the Raybestos bajo fitting. I will try the good old NAPA.

as for the cadillac calipers with e-brake cable, my husband hates them on his GMC full size K5 truck, the e-brake cable ratchet mehanism is not terribly reliable, gets stuck, and is a pain to adjust.

As for the rear disk conversion: you will need a proportioning valve or a master cylinder that contains one.........

Brackets, rotors and miscellaneous can be provided by Poser. Money well spent in my book.
