Old dia compe canti brakes E86 from 02/89 . Pads are dia compe and the posts have vertical grooves. Looking for replacements. They are about 50mm long.

Also those springs...I have only found right side ones online so far.

used to disc brakes

So for a more general question..,

Do I need pads that have the vertical groove post like the one above or is it OK to use something like kool stop pads that have horizontal grooves?

You're reading the model number upside down. That's a Dia Compe 983. There's nothing extraordinary about the original pads. Any pads close to the same size and shape should do.

Good thing you don't have to scrounge around for springs. For a safer setup, you might want to try a long link wire arrangement rather than the OEM straddle cable--unless you're running fenders.
