Throw on one of your freshly painted rotors and secure with 2 lug nuts hand tightened.

Now it is time to put on the calipers. Here is another tip...forget what the instructions say and put the brake cable retainer in the new brake cable bracket first and then put your clevis pin and bowtie cotter pin in before trying to line up the caliper. Much easier this way. Then you put 2 bolts through each caliper and through the mounting bracket and tighten. There are sleeves that go on the bolts that the calipers slide on.

Tomorrow I will be adjusting the brake cables to make sure there is no drag. First side took about 2 hours and the second side was about 30 minutes tops. This was a learn as I go project and the first side taught me some lessons. The brakes look like they will function nicely and the cables don't hang any lower. I have heard of folks switching brakes from one side to the other to keep the cables from hanging, but not an issue for me. They fit very easily behind my new 14's and there are no hang ups. (so far )

I missed the product update where Ausco made this kit fit Precedent models. I wonder if the brake cable bracket was the main modification.
Keep up the good work
They kit is described as "bolt on" but when I see things in the instructions that say cut this off or cut this out I think it goes beyond bolting on. I want to say this kit even said no modifications needed. I am not complaining, I just like to know what I am getting into!

You did a great job of showing the product and install. Some people would balk at cutting a piece off of the cart to get the kit to fit but most of the guys who are doing this type of upgrade are quite capable, like yourself. Nice of you to post this so we have a reference to show what to expect. I look forward to reading your conclusion.

I have been working on other projects and finally finished this one up. I did not have enough adjustment on the equalizer so I added a few washers to the back of the equalizer bolt. This worked great and I have plenty of adjustment room now. The brakes stop on a dime and the parking brake holds much better than before. If you want some extra stopping power this will do the trick.

So, the next step is to take the mounting bracket and bolt it to the axle tube (on the outside lip) with the four bolts you saved from the brake assembly. (all are 1/2" bolts) Directly afterwards carefully slide your axle back in and replace the snap ring. I like to push on the snap ring in a few spots with a flathead screwdriver to make sure it is seated properly.
I am agreement with 1970buick on the painting of bare metal parts. That can be done before the replacement ever starts. Be sure to keep track of your left and right parts during disassembly for painting. I too, had to add the washers on the main adjustment rod to get them adjusted correctly.
