    And how easy is it to fix? I might attack it when I install my Eibach drag springs and upper lower control arms

    Yes, that is why. It just hooks onto your rear caliper. Pretty simple compared to anything complicated :doh:

    There's a loop on your caliper. You'll pull that spring away from the metal tip and the steel wire will fit through the loop on your caliper. Then the spring will press the caliper which in turn will press the metal tip. Sorry if that sounds confusing. I'll take pics with my car tomorrow if you need.

    That's a drum brake e-brake cable. So if you have rear disks, it's not going to work. Are both of them zip tied to the sway bar?

    If you have rear disks, you'll need completely new cables.

    Then pull the wheel, pull the drum off, feed the cable into the hole on the backing plate and you should see where it wants to hook to. Might be a bit tricky.

    That actually makes sense my vehicle was factory equipped with drums. When I bought the car it had disc. That would explain my e-brake barely working. Still trying to figure out what year rear end I have.

    ^^ I heard that. Would be nice not to have to remember to leave it in gear all the time.

    I'm pretty positive I have drum. I'm gonna laugh if I have disc lol I wish. But yes I always have to turn the wheel extreme left or right for it not to roll back if I wanna get out with car running :/
