I just installed the rear disc brake conversion kit, it came with the cobra rotors but I put just the regular gt rotors and calipers on. The caliper does not seem to be in the proper position. I was under the assumption the bracket was the same for both the gt and cobra it was just the rotors and calipers that are different. Anyone have any experience with this swap?
