    does your state require an ebrake?

    also toss in cost of fluids, and maybe a proportioning valve to adjust the brakes afterwards. Heard that makes the brakes alot easier to adjust post swap.

    New flex lines to the rear calipers
    Replace the hardline with shorter pieces...no sense in having a loop from using the current lines
    Caliper pins
    Brake Pads
    Fluid

    I just rec'd a set of brackets from Dan at Ruff Stuff Specialties.
    Top notch parts & he offers a CK5 discount on them (look in the vendors section)
    I liked the fact that there is no need for the spacer & longer bolts .
    Just another option for you to look at

    Its a brake line inverted flare nut... you can just use the ones that are on your lines right now, but if you want to replace:

    Dorman P/N: 321413.1 3/16" Steel Nut
    Any autoparts store should be able to get it for you... i think they are only a couple bucks each\
