My dealer wouldnt touch my car for the ebrake line. They said they could help me with anything that was stock.

I cant believe that certain dealers have that attitude. If you are paying them their hourly rate to service your car they shouldnt complain. I would try another dealer or just find a shop that has a lift.....only takes about 10-15 minutes to fix. I would imagine that your cables are still usable and will not need replaced.

For now the zip ties are holding. So next week when I go to get the alignment again I will do your method of setting it up. I bought the clamps and hose from Autozone over the weekend.

I am going to throw one more method out there. When my father and I had the car up on a lift installing the short throw shifter over the weekend, I pointed out to him the issue with the wheels and the ebrake line clearance. On both lines I had popped the inner most barrel out of its clip at which time the cable natural tension caused it to pop up over the clip and hold itself between the top of the clip and the underside of the car (don't know the actual term for the panel). The "released" barrels hold firmly in place but more importantly relieved a TON of tension off of the cable coming out of the outer barrel that you guys are doing your clamping on to the point that I went from about 3/4 inch clearance between line and inner tire/rim to about 1.5 inches. Keep in mind I have not dropped the car yet and will be looking for a 1.5-2 inch drop similar to 6liter so at that time I may have to look into clamping the line as you guys have mentioned but for now, relieving the tension by popping the inner barrel has. Now, I know some folks will say "that inner barrel and clip is there for a reason and GM wouldn't have put it there if it wasn't necessary", while I generally agree with this, Pop and I looked thoroughly at where the ebrake inner barrel was resting and only a handful of inches later it turns and heads toward the front of the car so there was little concern with not having the inner barrel in the clip.

Now, I could be driving along later this week and start to hear a grinding sound, then a crunching sound, and then my ebrake launches vertical and then gets sucked into the floor as I watch it shoot out the rear end of the car and embed itself in the front of the SmartCar that was desperately trying to catch up to me to show me a chalkboard the eco-marxist driver had written my estimated carbon footprint on, but if that happens I'll report back... and post LOTS of pictures of the incident

I think it's great to warn people of what can happen when they modify their ride. Proceed with caution!
It also depends on what wheels you buy. CCW doesnt put a second valve hole, so there are no worries with their valve stem.
People need to research before they mod.

My clearance was fine with Pfadt springs and widened stock wheels (10.75"). Thanks to Fen for pointing this potential problem out, though. I'd rather check it now than have a problem later on that could have been avoided.

Who makes the drop coils or coilovers has no relationship to the clearance issue. Wheel diameter and offset are critical variables. The wise thing to do is check for clearance with new wheels or lowered vehicle on a rail style lift. Safety first!

Does anyone have tips to take up ebrake line slack? My MBRP 3", driveshaft, and heat shield is blocking easy access to the ebrake past the gas tanks.

I am trying to avoid taking off the 3" pipes, disconnecting the driveshaft from the rear dif, and dropping the heat shield. I did the 3/8" hose with clamps as a temp solution. I installed my CCWs and thought I had enough clearance at the time. This past week, I noticed a rubbing sound and found the cable rubbing under cetain conditions(no drop, yet). I guess all the jacking up and lowering may have pulled the ebrake cable so the finger clearance wasn't cutting it during certain suspension travel.

Don't know how to parse uploaded pics in the text so following pics shows
-ebrake mount between fr/rr heat shield that may be the key area to take up slack
-long shot of ebrake path
-various shots of temp solution
