    Installing rear disk on my 07 nnbs single cab short bed. I have seen some calipers mounted in the 10 o'clock position, and on some, in the 2 o'clock position. Any advantge or disadvantage in mounting either way? Or is it in relation on how the front calipers are installed. Thanks Jerry

    Daredevil- Purchased rotors, calipers, backing plate, pads, and parking brake and banjo brake line through NAPA. Bought anchor and lever hardware for parking brake through GMParts club. All OEM parts. The only problem that I am haveing is trying to get the correct length on the parking brake cable. So far I am about 900.00 into parts. Jerry
