    How will the stock blazer e-brake cables hook to the caddy calipers when doing a 14 bolt swap with disc brakes using the caddy calipers? What kind of mods need to be done?

    hey, im ready for those brackets like now! how come your brackets are $100 and misfits are $65??? anyway, with my caddy calipers i just cut my stock cables right at the end of the cable where the lead or metal piece starts that connects to the internals of the factory drum. then i just pulled them through the caddy cable stop brackets ( even the caddy bracket holes were the right size for the stock cable-end that snapped into the stock backing plate) then i pulled the actual cable through the spring and e-brake arm and used little tiny cable stop u-bolts to secure it and it wroked perfect, never had a problem. you can also use the lead cable stops with a crimping tool but then that would be permanent. e- mail me about those brackets again, i need them. thx j.c.

    I haven't tried the other suggestion. I am having new cables made. I'll give you the company if you need it.....

    I know why these brackets are $35 more than misfits: DERBINATOR makes the spacers out of one-piece aluminum, not like those individual spacers like misfit's.
