    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.

    Got an auto tranny and np241 tcase so no stock ebrake! In a Pig so offset rear end and ctr output tcase doesn't hurt me.

    David,


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

    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

    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.........

    Does the center of the k1500 discs (listed in the first post) need to be machined out?

    Yep they need to be machined out to .419 or something like that. Poser has them already done also.

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