Thanks for all help and for this sticky. Flipped my brakes over and they lined up perfectly using my medium duty leaf springs. Cart sits level brakes work great and cables are up out of the way. Great idea. Thanks again

Has anyone done this with a late model (2013) Precedent? The cable hanger brackets are different that they used to be, they have a bend in them. I think I can swap those brackets also from right to left and it might work, just got to go get a brake cable removal tool to check.

Post a picture. I've done this mod on all year model cars from 2004-2016 and never seen a different cable hanger.

If I have time tonight I am going to see if these can swap sides and be placed on top of the stack.

Ahh yes those. I thought you meant the metal clips that hold the brake cables up. When I build these newer cars I usually order a set of old style plates.

I am going to give it a try with these plates and will report back. Looking at the parts catalog looks like there is a "electric vehicle" version and a "Villager" version. These plates are from the non-descript "electric vehicle" version.

Anyway I think it will work by just swapping the driver/passenger sides and placing them on top of the spring stack. I don't even think I will use the All Sports top plate but just use these instead as they have the both the cable and shock mount. With the bend in them, they are stronger than a flat plate. The pics below show the driver side shock/cable mount plate in the stock position, and behind that the new leaf spring/lift block and the passenger side shock/cable mount plate flipped...this will become the new driver side spring and it seems the angle and position of the cable mount is good. Looks like the only thing that I need to do is cut a groove for the u-bolt in one area and open up the hole to go over the leaf spring bolt. I could stay with a single cross mounted u-bolt and there would be no modification to do (minus the center hole), but I like the idea of two u-bolts per side. Hoping to get this done tomorrow night, will post how it turns out.

BTW...thanks for the original post and following up with my questions. Been a long time lurker here, built a DS back in 2003 and just started building a bone stock Precedent.

Looking at it again this morning it looks like this will not work as I planned, that plate needs to be between the lift block and the spring for proper height. I am going to have to trim off that whole bend to accomplish that and use this plate just for the cable section and use the All Sports top plate for shock mounting.

So I was able to make this modification work with the shock mount/brake cable bracket that came with my cart. I had to completely remove the bend in that part along with the section for shock mounting. Also needed to increase the bolt length in my new HD springs and double nut the end so both this bracket and lift block would be secured. Will attach some pics of the modified bracket and final install. Thanks again to the OP...awesome mod!!
