    Got a set of these from Dave this summer and I'll say, this is a beautiful kit...too bad it gets hidden from view! Top-notch quality too!

    I ended up having the parking brake nub problem too. My car has calipers and e-brake cables from a Mark VIII on it...which are apparently a good bit different than the SC calipers. E-brake cable tensioner from a Mark VIII is a cool upgrade, btw...

    I was able to get the nubs into the bracket okay, but the Allen bolt head pops the cable out of the bracket when you try to pull the e-brake! The Mark VIII calipers don't have a cast recess for the nub to sit in like the SC's...it'll a flat steel bracket instead, which is part of why it pops out easily.

    So if you're doing a Mark VIII install, be careful that you read Dave's Facebook writeup and check your clearances and test your parking/ e-brake multiple times. It may go on without too much trouble, but it may still pop off!

    I have not fixed mine yet, but I suspect that grinding down the bolt head some may fix it. I really don't want to have to touch the nub-end of the cable.

    Dave,

    Any chance I can send you a check or do you only accept Paypal?

    Thanks,

    Hello,

    I would greatly appreciate if someone could help me here. I don't completely understand what's involved with all of this.

    I would like to upgrade my rear brakes and I would also like to go with the 5 on 4.5" B.C.D..

    Dave's brackets are exactly what I need. My question regards the Cobra hubs.

    Are the '99-2005 Cobra hubs a direct fit for the Thunderbird rear uprights?

    A quick eBay search found these:

    https://m.ebay.com/itm/FORD-PERFORMA...-/280269703516

    Are these what I need?

    I am rebuilding the entire rear end so I will be installing new rear bearings as well as rotors and calipers, etc..
    If I purchase these hubs, should I buy bearings for a T-Bird or a 2004 Cobra?

    If these hubs will fit my T-bird up rights without any significant modifications, should I also purchase the Hub rings from Dave?

    Thank you very much for any help you can give me with this.


    Dave

    Yes those hubs will work. Can get bearings for Tbird. Need rotors for cobra 11.65". T bird calipers and pads. Need mustang wheels.

    Thank you very much for the information.

    If I do buy the Mustang hubs, should I also buy the hub rings from Dave? I assume these rings are needed to secure the Mustang hubs in the T-Bird rear spindles?

    Thank you again.

    That is correct. You will not need the hub rings.
