Does anyone have a suggestion on the best place to purchase the intermediate cables for the parking brake (the left and right ones at the rear wheels)?

Passenger side is very tough to find, but there was a thread recently in the 90-95 forum of a potential source on Ebay.

These non common parts are getting pretty scarce.

 

Unless you get lucky with a dealer that has one left over, my suggestion would be to fabricate one with universal parts.

 

Are your rear's drum or disc.

 

I have the discs, and when the time comes to replace the calipers, my plan is to swap in a set D154 Chevy calipers.  The mounting hole centers are within 1/16" so there might have to be a bit of filing to elongate the mounting holes.  I'll report back (as to other alignment or fitment issues) when its time for me to do this.    

 

The D154 comes with and without a parking brake built in, so when looking at these, make sure you get the right one.   With these, the use of something like the Lokar universal e-brake cable system (and there are others out there) can be used.

 

Hopes this helps.
