    i will be doing a rear disc conversion on my 14 bolt ff. what is the best approach to the e-brake,or parking brake issue? i see the cadillac calipers with mech. parking brake. also driveshaft ones. any other options? i know you can use the cheaper 3/4 ton calipers without e-brake. a cable pull setup isn't really what i want to do since i don't have any of the stock e-brake stuff. any ideas thanks! /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    Those are about your only choices, I am going the caddy caliper route. what t-case do you have?? That will decide if the t-case e brake will even work for you. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    wheel chocks...that's about your only other option, unless you wanna design some one-off setup like i'm gonna do.

    the line lock works with you hydralic braking system so there would be not point for it if your brakes failed.
