    I have decided to convert my 14 bolt FF to rear disk brakes. I am going to go with the newer TSM kit that uses the 3/4 ton Chevy rotors. My question is about the e-brake cables. Will I have to buy new cables or will my stock cables work with the Eldorado calipers? any help would be greatly appreciated
    thanks

    You may want to do a search on this. There have been a couple of posts discussing ebrakes with those cal's. If I remember right the answer is no. And you will need to get the ebrake arms for the calipers at a wrecking yard. I don't think you can get them at the store anymore. Call your local auto parts store and see if they carry the arms. Good luck,hope this helps!
