Emergency Brake Hardware Kit


This kit includes hardware that you may need if you’re adding a set of disc brake calipers from a 1976-78 Cadillac Eldorado to your vehicle.

One Emergency Brake Hardware Kit fixes both ends of the axle and it includes:

  • Actuating levers
  • cable mounts
  • Return springs
  • Installation hardware

*Emergency Brake Cables are not included but you can order Universal Emergency Brake Cables here.

NOTE: If you don’t already have your own 76-78 Eldorado calipers, then you don’t want this kit. You want our full emergency brake kit here, or one of our full disc brake conversion kits here.

If you are converting the rear drum brakes on your truck over to disc brakes, you may lose your parking brake.

If you want to keep your parking brake, you have a couple of options:

  1. Buy a disc brake conversion kit that includes a set of calipers that have a built-in parking brake (like our rear disc brake conversion kits), or;
  2. Find a set of ’76-’78 Cadillac Eldorado brake calipers to go along with one of our kits (assuming you order our kit without calipers)

If you go with option #2, then this emergency brake hardware kit is for you. This is a hardware kit only, and it is for people who already have their calipers, but the parking brake actuator is damaged or missing.

The kit includes the following for both rear brakes:

  • Actuating lever
  • Cable mount
  • Return spring

NOTE: This kit does not include emergency brake calipers or the emergency brake cables that run the brake to the pedal or hand lever.
