No, they are identical with the brackets shown in my photo.

Please re-read my post.

The brackets get bolted to the frame rail in the same location as the original brackets, WITH THE SHANK OF THE WELDED-IN BOLT FACING OUTWARD, AWAY FROM THE FRAME RAIL.

The original cable clamp on the E-brake cable now gets slipped over the shank of the bolt that's welded to the bracket, and secured with a hex nut and lockwasher.

One look at the photo should make it unmistakably clear.
You are right! I was trying to tighten it upside down :P (NOOOOB).

Thanks for you detailed answer.

The welded stud with a nut is now what holds the e-brake line as FJtest is describing.

Sorry, I hadn't read down far enough to see you had it figured out! I remember trying to figure out what they were for too.

Re: E brake relocation for the sliders

It took me a loooong time to figure out how they were supposed to go. Eventually I did - attached are photos of both sides.

I also wrapped it in 3/4" split loom to protect it from pressing on the metal edges, as the standoffs didn't seem to move the cable all the way out of the way.

They are way more rusty than I'd like. I suppose I should have painted them in addition to the sliders...
