We are now offering a bolt in handbrake conversion bracket to use an SC300/400 handbrake in a first generation Lexus GS300
This kit includes all of the necessary brackets, which require zero cutting or welding, as well as installation instructions! Simply unbolt the existing foot brake and cable and use our bracket to bolt in a Lexus SC handbrake.
*This is for LHD vehicles only*
*This has not been verified to work with auto transmission*
This kit was designed around a factory transmission tunnel! HLSS is not responsible for fitment issues if you have hammered the transmission tunnel out where it interferes with fitment. However, we have successfully installed this bracket in several cars that have been fitted with CD00X transmissions. There is one stud on the side of the transmission tunnel (circled red in pictures) that will support the HLSS handbrake bracket. If you have had to modify the tunnel in any way, such as hammering for clearance, it may affect the location of this stud and may require you to find another solution. In many cases, you may be able to move the stud back into place enough to re-align with the bracket. The bracket itself may have to be slightly modified, or bent, to re-align with the stud. Please message or call us first if you have any questions!
What you will have to supply is:
- SC Handbrake
- Leather handbrake boot (optional)
- Front half of SC cable (handbrake to extension bar)
This bracket is used for the purpose of converting a foot parking brake to a hand parking brake. HLSS does not, by any means, guarantee the ability of this parking brake modification to hold your car stationary while stopped or to lock up the rear wheels in any sort of manor. This is for off-road use only and Heat Lightning Speed Shop is not liable for any damages that may result from improper installation and/or the use of this item! Professional installation is recommended.
