    Yes they can be moved left to right. They originally have the calipers mounted to the front, but some cars need them mounted to the rear to clear sway bars.

      Yes, I swap them for installation on pre 73 cars. As stated above on early cars with stabiliser they must be swapped so the car can steer. Hose from a 72/73 b-body must be used then.

          F-body hoses are longer and will work. One of the aftermarket vendors supplys Camaro hoses.

            Any auto parts store you need to buy hoses that do not have the metal extensions that reach behind the spindle used on the 73-76 a-body cars.

            Info is on this thread.
