Is there any advantage to having the rear brake calipers are in front of or behind the rear axle? Is one way better than the other for plumbing the brake lines or emergency brake cable? I have a 3-link with FFR's brake package.

Thanks

It is easier to plumb from the rear end with the calipers on the rear. It is easier to plumb from the frame with them on the front. If the new Koni shocks are used they must go to the front. HTH, Cheers Richard.

If you plan to add sway bars you may want to talk to Greg at http://www.vpmcobras.com/

On my IRS car I needed to run them to the front of the car if I wanted to use their adjustable sway bar.
I don't know about 3 link. Do some searches and make a call or two. Good luck.
