      What parking brake cables - A-body with LT-era rear disks

      I know A-bodies aren't quite as well represented as the F-bodies but hopefully someone knows.

      I have the LT1-era PBR calipers, clocked so the caliper is on the leading edge of the wheel.

      What e-brake cables do I need to connect these to my stock e-brake pedal? Didn't find an explicit answer here or on Chevelles.com; someone mentioned Baer but the cable set on their site just says "Attaches to OE front cable NOT included", but the picture doesn't look like it'd hook to anything I have.

      So - anyone know?

      Check out Lokar or Control Cables. I used all Lokar parts with the stock pedal.

      I have a '72 Olds 442 convertible that has rear discs from a 2001 Chevy Blazer, which are very similar to the LS1 F-body rear brakes. I bought replacement cables for 2001 Blazer and shortened them to fit the stock A-body parking brake frame mounts, then I used all the stock '72 A-body cables for the front parking brake pedal cable and the intermediate cable. It's worked out really well and looks stock from under the car.
