Many years ago - my wife observed me under a car in a junkyard removing a master cylinder. Saying it looked unsafe she stacked a couple of rims next to me. Moments later the car fell on the rims. I removed the cylinder and changed my underpants. Be safe.
Had a car fall off a jack a few months ago before I could get the jackstands in place. A very sobering experience. The suggestion about putting the wheels under a car being worked on is a good one. It could be the difference between life and death, and being crushed by a car is probably not a pleasant way to go...

Been doing this for over 43 years and have had it happen a few times over the years, great advice.

The junkyard experience was very sobering. We were on a vacation when the master cylinder went out on the VW microbus but, that's another story. There was no other option to get the part where I was but the reality was that I could have been killed there 40 yrs ago.
When death finally comes he is gonna say 'Gotcha this time' to me

I am planing on installing the ameri torque rear disk brakes. Can anyone tell me if it is necessary to move or cut the original brake cable holder on a lifted onward? Are there any issues mounting the on top of the axle vs the bottom?

I wasn't able to run them with the caliper on top. I think the actuator arm hits the leaf. No issues though with them on the bottom. Also, as Pingeye suggests paint all of the bare metal parts. I used roll bar paint and 2 years later they still look new.

E36Racer,
Now that you've been running these for a while, do you notice any noises related to the pads dragging on these disk breaks? Or, any squeaking in general? I'm on the fence about getting this kit because I've heard they can be noisy.

Thanks

The only time I know of the rubbing noises, on the half dozen carts I have installed them on at the club, was the first movement after the cart sitting all night and only at the slow speeds like backing out of the garage. Some squeaking there, but it goes away for the rest of the days use. It is more prevalent on a cart used on the course and running on wet grass or in the rain. A little surface rust forms on the rotor and causes the squeaking until it gets cleaned off. Humidity is heavier here in Orlando, so more moisture in the air for the surface rust to form, rain or shine. My 2 cents

I have a new set here for a DS project. I pulled them out of the box to paint them, but the manufacturer has gotten the message and now all of the bare parts are plated.

Where's the best place to buy the kits for a precedent these days? I see Cart Parts Plus only has them for EZGO.

They have them here, see link, with lead time of 6-8 weeks. It has been 8 weeks today I am waiting on lift kit from David at Revolution ordered from them. Best to Google search and call each vendor to see what is in stock. Not much anywhere these days.
