Drivin sub again

Finally got a job closer to the house and I'm back to driving my sub. I had forgoten how much fun it is. Of coarse the first day I got a cop to lockup the brakes, I waited till the last second and hit my brakes. Could be why I've been seeing him more. I love givin them a hard time but they know they can ask for help and I will

The calipers for a Cadillac have an e-brake and they are supposed to work perfectly. I think you need the ones off a 78 El Dorado.

DIY4X makes a bracket kit for $65, click the link. You could probably make up a bracket like it yourself.

I'm having to wait on a few guys to get their trading done so I can get the axels. Trying to get the springs to I'm tired of halling a trailer an the back sags. Those brackets look good and I probably could make them. I just know too many engeneers that have acces to cnc plasma/laser to do it buy hand with a torch. Thanks for the info. I'm also having to rebuild the wifes tranny on the 93 sub. Thanks again. And if your wondering why my son isn't doing it. Well he got a job and their testin his mettle.

I used some grade 8 bolts for my springs. I just ground down the head so it would fit in the hole. 3/8" diameter are what you need.
