Right now I have nothing. Working on a new setup this week. I snapped the front cable since it was too tight going down around the firewall.

I will be trying stock setup again, but this time rerouting some of the brackets to allow some give. Then at the caliper I use a a tube as a spacer to keep the cable tight.

Thats for the lifted truck. Also kicking around the idea of going custom cables where it splits.

The lowered truck I said screw it. Its an automatic.

Ok I wasn't sure how the "spacer" worked but found a picture last night, makes sense now, I'll run it that way for now

Rear end just about finished up, will be mounting rotors and pads tomorrow and make sure everything is good.





Had to grind a bit of the inside of the diff cover the ring gear was rubbing









Mustang calipers and brackets mounted up









Brake lines all installed







Installed new parking brake cables, much easier to work with than the original ones.
