couple brake questions ...

Is running a driveline centered parking break a viable option I have heard of them but never talked to anyone that has used them could you set up a 10 bolt 8.5 chevy for say under 200 bucks...

also is a line lock a safe option for a parking brake? also heard of people doing this but not sure how safe it is cause if you loose line pressure your outta luck...

oh one other thing does a brake booster need manifold vacuum or ported vacuum from the carb or does it matter?

Both will work but I prefer to use the OEM parking brake system. Both depend on hydraulic pressure...
