    My parking brake isn't connected on my 85 K5. I was going to replace the rear brakes, and reconnect the parking brake, but I was curious as to brake upgrades. ANyone know of a common upgrade to the rear brakes? If I upgrade to say a rear disc brake, will the parking brake need to be changed as well?
    Thanks!

    Use the search feature and read up on it.

    If your truck has the stock rear, it's a 10 bolt, and there are plenty of options around for converting them to disk. I guarantee you'll find posts mentioning parts/kits available for the 10 bolt, from many different sources.
