(also check the slide pins for straightness as they have been known to be bent...)

Believe its for best orientation of the handbrake cable.

I'd like to have it on the same angle as the front calipers but i think it would hit the rear strut.
Im sure it's due to the length of the handbrake cable but if you could choose a position where would you put it. It would depend on the way the suspension travels under braking and load etc. Very interesting stuff.

You can use the standard brackets and just cut them down. I'll take a picture.
Any chance of making a extra set of brackets for the handbrake mod?
On the same topic i put new kits in the rears and a Brand new 1 inch Master Cylinder but i still only have half a pedal. The Nipples *giggles* are on the bottom on the R31's and i suspect that the air is not getting out. With the old 7/8 it would pump up good but then lose all pressure.

I was under the impression that the position of the calipers would affect the balance of the car (brake bias) under braking. Therefore is there some way of determining the ideal position of the caliper from a braking perspective as opposed to a ideal handbrake cable perspective?
