    The reason I ask is that I tried both of them recommended for C4 rearends and neither works very well. I ended up using the stainless ones.

    I bought the kit recommended; the Lokar 'Wilwood Clevis Kit' EC-80WC, and I agree with you... I didn't think it was designed very well for the Corvette calipers... Something much more simple and easier to install would have worked better...

    The issue I have is the stainless clevis hits the rubber cover for the bleeder screw. Not a major problem, but annoying. The stock C4 cable has a swaged end connector that would be a better design. The Wilwood clevis was even worse.

    I like the end you used; which is what I was thinking of when I said something 'more simple' and easier to install would work better! I didn't know what the alternatives were and I bought what 'Lokar recommended'.... and it does suck. So where does one find the clevis ends that you used? Or did you make it yourself? It appears that if the clevis were a little shorter (more compact), it would avoid the issue of hitting the rubber?
