I have read a few older posts about this topic but nothing recent.
The car I`m getting has the brake upgrade but the rear brackets turn the calipers upside down so they have to be bled off of the bracket.
Does anyone still make the brackets which will mount the caliper right side up.
I`m not familiar with this upgrade so excuse me if I`m missing something.
Thanks

I don't think there was a bracket made to do that. I have those brackets (bought the car with them on). I think people reversed sides so the bleeder would face up, but doing that meant you couldn't use the emergency brake cable. others will chime in I hope to correct me if I've mis-spoken.

I did see a write-up that placed the brake cable below the axle but I`m not sure what year it was and what is involved.
Thanks

Here's a nice summary of brake options

http://www.fiero.nl/forum/Forum2/HTML/109048.html

I believe the bleeder/ ebrake cable issue was resolved. You don't hear much about lebaron anymore now that 12" and 13" kits are available.

Thanks Jonathan, for the link.
I will stick with the ones on it for now.
I have other work I need to finish first.

I know this post is a few months old but just found it. I'm using the original bracket style designed by Walt Zettner and my rear calipers are right side up. My bleeder screws are on the top and my e-brake cable goes over my axle with no issues. I'm using Pontiac 6000 rear cables which have a metal sleeve abouth 4 inches long to keep the end straight over the axle and supported on the opposite side of the axle where the hose clamp support would normally be.

can't post any pics, photobucket is down right now.
