I would like to use Wilwood 4 pots, hats and disk,(lighter than oem). Anyone make a lightweight steel hat, that will work as an e-brake drum, like Porsche/etc. ? I don't want to use a "line lock" as an e-brake. Thanks, roverman.

This is what I think I have on my rear axle that Ted Lathrop installed on my 8" Ford Axle. It is cable opperated
