Also, when you guys did your rears, did you have to switch your lefts with rights, and rights with lefts?  My right is installed on the left, and my left is installed on my right.  It was the only way they would fit with the brake line brackets oriented in the correct position.  Was wondering if anyone else had this situation.

I installed my rears yesterday and had this issue.  It depends on the reference D2 is using.  I think they are looking at the car from the front and determining left and right and not from the back.  I would like to see it labeled drivers side rear/front and passenger side rear front.

I had to use the provided relocation brackets for the rear lines, otherwise they were stretched a little with the car sitting low with the lines bolted to the stock locations. You want to use the brackets to lower the brake line mount points.

Ahh .. So THAT'S what those extra brackets are for. Just put my rears in and it took a little massaging to get the brake lines back on.
I hope to be tearing the fronts apart and welding tonight :)

Not for the rear but you just bolt it to the stock location, bend it how you need, put the grommet over the line and slide it into the notched end.
