    I'm putting disc brakes on my '78 K25 and want to use Eldorado calipers to retain the e-brake. Will your stainless extended lines work for this application? Thanks.

    I'm using the DIY4x 14 bolt kit with '78 Cadillac calipers. My truck is a '78. The rotors are stock fronts for my truck. Thanks.

    They're supposed to fit well. The rotors are still on their way here, so I'm not positive. There's a few people here who have this setup though. Anyone running this setup that can help?

    I got my stainless lines for my El Dorado calipers from TSM. It was $50 for any length. I forget the AN size, but just give them a call and they'll be more than happy to give you what you need. I know, a little expensive, but they do look nice. :D

    Just tell us the banjo bolt size and you're good to go, not a big deal. TSM's lines can be a little short unless you specify what you want. We go with a bit longer line to give a little slack when you remove the caliper and to let you loop the line over the leaf spring instead of under. It's usually a bit easier to work with that way.

    You mean I could've got my lines from you? :frown1: I didn't know that or else I would have given my money to you instead. Guess I should have asked. :doah:
