    It's just replace existing parts.

    What parts have you got to do the conversion?

        Need the 98+ PAB brackets and bolts to attach to spindles.

        Brake lines are the biggest issue - I had mine custom made.

            Stock brake lines are too short - both 93-97 and 98+ due to change in style and location of hose ends.

            Stainless Steel Braided Brake Hoses (Goodridge G-Stop p/n 12217-SPL)

            The SPL means "special"

              Thanks for the info Robert, do I just call them and give them the part #? Im going to go with some remanufactured calipers and brackets, ones i have are pretty worn out. The bracket , is that what you meant by PAB brackets, ill have to check on the bolts, if i dont have them, do you have a part # for them?

                Found my bolts, their #18060356 i hope their the right ones, bought them 6 years ago. Any one know if thats the correct bolt number? Found my answer its correct, went on Roberts site and he had the bolt numbers and searched, the one I have is just a updated part number for them.

                            Their making them, just need to wait until their done, they are shipping them directly to me thats what the trouble was. Still need to pay for them. Painted the calipers yesterday, did them in silver, turned out pretty nice.
