    Looking to see how people have hooked up their rear brake lines when doing the rear disk conversion. I have the AZ-Kickin conversion kit installed, have the hose kit standing by to stand by, but don't have rear metal lines, at least that I can find so far. I'd like to see though how folks made the connection to the brakes if anyone has pics?

    Bent my own hardlines over, then used 12" braided AFCO lines and the adapter to the caliper.

    I made my own little bracket similar to Az-Kickin's and bolted it to the caliper mount. Ii used 78 K20 front lines.

    Goodridge sells a real nice kit with a weld on tab
    do not have your line floating without the bulkhead connector
    I welded mine inboard of the spring perch as the stock style lines were quite long
    the Goodridge kit contains everything you need
    I think TSM pulls the label off and uses it as their hardware

    I'm sorry for stealing the post! /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif

    I need a little direction, I just found out 15" rims WON'T fit over my caddy calipers. (yes, I did buy 8--lugs. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif)

    So now that I have to buy new rims and tires in the next few days. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif

    What size do I need 16", 16 1/2", 17".

    I'm installing the D60 later, and now I don't want to shave anything off any calipers.

    I sorry again, but I figured you guys would have the most info on the subject. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Where did you get your disc brake brackets? What offset are your wheels? I had no problem clearing Caddy calipers with 15x10 wheels that have a 4.25 inch backspacing. They fit fine with TSM brackets and with my new AZ-Kickin' brackets.

    The brackets I bought from another member, BUT thats not the problem. The rims where hitting the calipers just sitting on the rotors. I don't know what the deal is!

    If I ran 16" wheels could I run a D60 and the disc brakes in the back without trimming anything?

    I'm sorry again.

    16" wheels will fit anything Chevy has ever made.

    Highjaxx, sorry to hear you are having trouble. I personally haven't had any experience with the caddy calipers so I'm afraid I can't be of any assistance. I know there are quite a few guys on here that are running them so maybe they can help you out. Good luck.
