    it's usually whatever I find - be it rocks or mud or sand or just dirt. I'm not really extreme about any of it. 'spose I should do sumthin' with them lines. :thinking:

    How well do they work? I had a set on my truck and replaced them with a high angle e-brake kit because they didn't hold and one started to leak around the arm bolt. I have another truck I want to disk out back, but since it is a manual I have left it alone to keep a parking brake.

    If i set the brake it will hold the truck, now if i start the truck and put it in gear it also will hold, but if i give the throttle a blirp it will roll forward slightly then stop. I have not taken any time to adjust it up any tighter so maybe if i did it would hold even better. I will get around to that after i get my tranny issues fixed.

    I pulled them from the wrecking yard off of a seville/fleetwood caddy. IIRC you have to get one side from a seville and the other from a fleetwood, this is because they mount the calipers one on front and one behind the axle.
