I brought my V8 car home; me sitting on the engine lid with my feet on my buddies bumper and another guy steering operating the e-brake. I believe Darwin was on his lunch break ;-)

Long shot, but I'm lookin for the bracket and spring that go on the Caddy e-brake caliper that goes on the LeVair rear disc bracket. I got new calipers that didn't come with and just recently discovered I needed them. Anyone? TIA Cheers, Dave

I'll know for sure when the new ones come in and I can try them. Thanks Matt!

I'm tearing my hair out with the spacers on my car. I drilled out the stud holes on all 4 hubs to fit 12mm studs so that I could use the GM wheels with proper lug nuts. Now that I'm going to use the spacers, the studs are too short. I've been searching and found some ARP studs for a Lexus. I did a pretty good search through Dormans catalogue and found nothing. The problem is that t

Geez, sorry I asked! LOL I'm using all the bits that will wind up in the final assembly to be used in the car. It comes apart fairly easy after I assemble it for a measurement. Just a tug with a puller for the yoke. I have moved the dial gauge for better alignment. I'm going to recheck today, then grease it up and install. It's cold up here for a week or so and I am going to hunke

I've got my rear hub assembled and am ready to test the end play. Bearings are greased and yoke nut at 100ft.lbs. The pic shows my set up. I will move the spindle support back and forth and the difference will be the end play, right?

Anyone out there using the Scarebird brackets with Cadillac calipers on the rear of their LM? Got them mounted, having to grind the torque arm a bit for clearance. Looking for some pics of how the e-brake situation is handled. TIA Cheers, Dave

Will a fully assembled rear hub mount into the trailing arm, or does the yoke have to be off? TIA Cheers, Dave
