    Are you sure? You should double check cause 97 was the last year to use the caliper for an E-Brake. 98 on up use a drum setup for the E-Brake!!
    Positive,,,,I have had both the 97 and the 02 apart,,,they use the same style E-brake,,,even my 88 Iroc had rear disc brakes with same E-brake setup.

    My 97 and 98 have completely different setups.

    O.K., then we need more info to figure out the differences. Do either of the cars have Traction Control ? If they do, the 97 should have a 3 channel and the 02 could have 3 or 4 channel?

    98 - 02 uses shoes inside a drum attached to the rotor for the parking brake

    ( probably the reason rear rotors cost a bit more )
