Wanting to see what it would take to put a hydraulic parking brake setup for my foxbody. Currently have front and rear disc brakes. Ive researched online and it all pertains to newer stangs or imports. Thanks guys

should be basically the same as installing one on a newer mustang. I assume your rear disc brakes are something like an sn95 5 lug swap?

not trying to be cheap but i like to do a lot of research first hand prior to spending the $$$, but yeah not in a rush to make a purchase but this is the site where a few of my import buddys reffered me to http://www.partsshopmax.com/page.php?4

not interested in these import items tho. whats the link to the asd items your speaking of

no, it works exactly like a reg master cylinder, just hand held. there is two to choose from, in line or separate system. one goes in line of the reg rear brake line, hence in line, very easy to install, cost effective, but minor set backs with experienced driving, when trying to use both brakes simultaneously, the separate system is the pro stuff that has no effect from one system to to the other, cost more, more labor involved.
