    Didn't have any problems with mine. But there is an adjustment screw on the I believe it is usually on the drive side towards the rear tire. Should be a long threaded rod with a but holding the cable if I am not mistaken.

    I fixed the problem by moving it to the other side of the body mount.

    With a rear disc conversion and 4" suspension lift my ebrake was 5" too short. Called Control Cable in Sante Fe Springs, CA. They did a 24 hour turnaround made me custom cables for $35 each.
