thanks for replying
do you have a photo of the pieces you are describing, and where they go?
ALL of the parts i am putting on are brand new, so i imagine I should have the parts you mention. If I dont I will go back and ask.
I am probably not describing this very well. I screwed in the caliper keeper bracket into the only piece it could attach to on the rear end. I found where the rear brake pad slides into the caliper keeper, and placed it in. btw, it just falls out the bottom w/o the rotor in place. then I put on the roter, and slide the caliper down onto it bottom first w/ the other pad attached to the roter. all looks great and as any diagram shows it should look, but its just sitting there, you can literally pull the whole caliper off by pulling back on it and that cant be right. another weird deal, im on ym second non fitting set of lug nuts for this 77-80 versailles, they screw on and you can force them, but I know their not right.
