There are studs hole on brake caliper brackets, just insert the cable into it and tighten it then will be ok.

Testimonial: "Sorry, I may have misled you. My problem isn't wondering WHERE to attach the cable to the caliper but how. I guess the proper way is to adjust the cable tension first. I have been using a screw driver to try to push the spring away from the end of the cable while pulling the end of the cable with a pair of vice grips. I was able to attach the driver side but the passenger is more taught. I have since found the adjustments, one along the passenger side and one at the rear which I can see but can't even get to. The one along the side is all rusted."

91 Buick Park Avenue front left caliper slow to release. Replaced caliper and have same problem. After running a few miles and jacking up front end the whell cannot be turned by hand on left side. Right...

The caliper is probably rusty inside, and is stucked. Take it apart and clean it. You may need new rubber seal as well. This will save you money over buying a new one.

Hub bearing

The hub bearing takes the place of the two part bearing set that was used on older cars. generally it is a sealed double roller bearing in a housing that is part of the flange that the rotor fits on and your wheel bolts to. A binding brake caliper is a caliper that either has sticking slide mounts, a rusted piston or in some cases the rubber hose between the body and the caliper internally fails and keeps pressure in caliper after the brake has been applied, failing to allow it to release. This condition usually is evidenced by one wheel either smoking, or being much hotter after driving, when compared to the temp of the opposite wheel, or by a rotor that is blued instead of the normal color.
