big nuts.

On the bottom of the backing plate there are 2 large lock nuts on the adjusters, you adjust them out to stop wheel rotation then back a bit each one seperately. that said you now have 2 seperate designed systems. the fronts are self energiging and the rear depend on hyd pressure, If you plot the curve for foot pedal pressure and stopping for the fronts and backs, they are different, Might give you scarry braking in a panic stop , Some Chevy Wagons in the 70's or 80's, and some other GM cars use self adjustin, self energizing brakes than can be adapted to your rears and you can convert the fronts to self energizing, There is a lot more info on the HAMB forums, part no's ,etc, most of the Info here is muscle cars, Chevy power train.
