Yep. I figured I would have hit the frame on just about every bump. That's why I swapped sides.

Rob,

Any update on the e-brake set-up?
I am thinking about trying to use the factory F-Body e-brake brackets flipped like the calipers.....

I need a set of F-Body e-brake brackets to mock it up....
Do you have any to donate to the cause?

Thanks,
Dave

I wish. Every time I think I have an idea when I start working on it I don't like it. All I have is my original brackets.

Rob,

Do you know how tall the new bump stops are that you put in?
