CadVetteStang Posted August 2, 2017 Author Report Share Posted August 2, 2017 (edited) One forgotten detail about the REAR rotor size increase (which has z direct implication to the upcoming front brake mod... The repositioning of the caliper on the driver's side caused the brake hose to be pulled tight when the suspension was fully extended. To remedy this, I used a brass fitting that I found in my tool box and a longer bolt that I also had. The fitting had an inner diameter that fit the bolt without slack and the outer diameter was large enough to be a good foundation for the brake hose bracket. This homemade spacer returned enough length to the hose that it no longer made contact with the frame during full suspension extension. On the front, I'll be able to use the Eldorado brake hoses with the 14" rotors by making a spacer for the hose bracket that attaches the middle of it to the strut. (see picture of the FRONT strut brake hose bracket bellow) Edited August 2, 2017 by CadVetteStang Quote Click here to visit the main directory for my subforum about my 2002 Eldorado build for autocross racing: http://caddyinfo.ipbhost.com/index.php?showforum=96 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
