This would most likely solve many headaches associated with the factory rear parking brake system. And as an added benefit, it's cheap and looks relatively easy to do. Click on the link and scroll down almost to the bottom and look for the pictures of a rear caliper.

What's interesting about that caliper? Looks like it functions the same as the Fiero rear (88 at least).

That's the same Caddie rear that's used in the LeBaron swap. All they did was make actuator arms that worked with their setup. They also used 01 Dodge 1/2 ton 4x4 truck front rotors

I'm talking about the lever that they made. I know on my car even with brand new cables the springs still were not strong enough to return the levers back to their stops, but by modifying a rear drum parking lever and adding a second spring would most likely solve the issue. Figured I would post it here for anyone having the same issue as me.

Oh...

I have all of the parts for the Lebaron swap. Am I going to have that problem, too?

I wish they had a part number for the levers. I would buy some from RA. They do look a lot like my 1992 f150 levers maybe I can look them up and try.
