My 200sx rear calipers for my 510 are bolted on witha bracket. I was wondering what you guys did for the parking brake cable? I have read that you switch the left n right calipers. I have tried it, but the bracket for the cable hits the a arm.

Thought I would keep u guys posted even though I am replying to my own question. I was reading my Dime Quarterly issue with 280zx brake upgrade, and I was looking at his calipers and the size is the same,BUT the bracket that holds the line for the parking brake is facing the wrong direction and in the way of the control arm. ANYONE??? I have heard of a lot of people doing 200sx, but noone ever said anything about parking brake problems. Maybe they just run without parking brake. Yikes

"Be hardcore and run a hydraulic handbrake "

That is cool, but I want a cable in case hydrolics have a leak or break.
