Nice wagon build. I've used shock relocation brackets on both my rear disc gbody with no issues of the shocks.

Finally am update. Quinn, do you have a plan in mind for the emergency brake?

I have yet to do mine, and I'm running the LS/C5 rear brakes.

I made the two pairs of brake cable brackets as shown earlier in this post. I tried out the stock cables in the connectors for the backing plates, and they fit perfectly. I have not hung the cables yet to make sure the 'L' brackets take up the slack on the stock cables when attached to the calipers. Stay tuned, unless you figure it out first....

I sold some excess parts and need to burn up some Paypal credit. I think it's time to give up on plots and schemes to modify the Jeg's 400 crossmember. I am looking at the G-Force and Summit versions, but I have a better option in the works rather than that crappy driver's mount extension bar. Stay tuned....

Picked up a set of body mounts on Black Friday. It will be time soon to resolve the whole crossmember problem. Just not yet ready to do a full frame off at this point, but it would be nice to get this back on the road before I need to hire a chuffeur.
