Q: Retaining e-brake with SN95 brakes/5 lug

As far as I know there are two options for 5 lug rear with disc brakes.
1st) is machining the stock T.C rear disc to 5 lug.
2nd)Use SN95 Mustang rear components.

I've read here on turbotbird that if I use the SN95 parts that I will loose my E-brake.
However,on Cool Cats it dosen't mention the lost of the E-brake. It actually says that the SN95 Mustangs use a T.C e-brake set up. It seems like Cool Cats is implying its a direct fit.
Take a look at Cool Cats here.

So,...anyone done the swap and retained the e-brake? Or anyone have any useful info to help in this area?

THANKS

in about 3 weeks i will be able to tell you yes or now. it looks you can.
i bought a tc rear with sn95 brakes on it. and the car i got it from it was hooked up. i bought new cables for a tc and plan on installing them with the new rear. i will let you know if and how well they work. i don't see why they wouldn't. the calipers is practically the same jut not was wide (rotors not being vented the rotor is thinner).

The late Mark VII ('91+) used the same caliper as the TC and was 5 lug. Any chance those rotors have the correct dimensions to drop in? Then you would just use the SN95 Mustang rear axles.

I've been reading for about 4hrs straight. I found this on Turboford.net. I'm still not done but I'm about to go to bed.
Anyway, notice the 5th post down from Rod K.

Good night

Edit: Nevermind the Mark VII rear parts since the axles are little longer. I plan on useing 10.5 rear wheels but hey atleast his e-brake works.

Brain fried, time to shut down.
