    I am going to install disc brakes (with Misfit's brackets) on my 14FF before it goes under my truck. I thought about using the caddy calipers but have heard that they don't hold too well. So here are some of the options I was thinking about:

    1) Caddy calipers and a line lock
    2) Driveshaft mounted e-brake
    3) Just a line lock (which I would really not like to do)

    For the Driveshaft e-brake I could:
    A) Have to find a flange output for my 205 and sandwich a disc in the middle of the flange. Than I would have to get a mechanical caliper and fab up a mount for it.
    B) Buy the kit and 1ton CV from High Angle Driveline ($$$ that I don't have)

    I am looking for a cheep, powerfull, and relible solution...any advice?

    Carry a big F'ing block of wood and put it in front/rear of your tire as needed.[​IMG]
