For those of you that have done the swap is there a difference between the brackets other than drivers and passengers? I have a set of brake pads that only fit into the passenger side bracket and will not fit into the drivers side bracket. The pads stick out too far not allowing the pin to slide through to hold the caliper into the bracket. These are cardone brackets. I'm not sure if they're new or reconditioned. In any case I was sent another bracket as I thought that was the problem but same exact issue. I also went to a couple different parts store to check pad fitment and again the same issue all with different pad manufacturers.

Thanks,
Mike

I seen a thread about this issue.
Were they need to ground down a pin to be able to fit the cobra calipers n pads

The only grinding I read about was for the brake line fitting to the caliper.

Anyone else? I know there's plenty of guys who've done the swap, as well as a handful of Cobra owners on here.

Thanks,
Mike
