    I have a 75 Chevy Blazer and I put a 4 inch lift on it. Now my emergency brake cables from the brakes to the frame mount are to short. Is there any replacements that I can put on?

    you have to extend the adjustment on the secondary cable all the way out then relocate the mounting braket to a close location.
    Good luck

    The other option is to get custom replacement actuator cables like I did for my rear disc brake swap. I sent a drawing of exactly what I wanted to Control Cable Corp., 13230 E. Firestone Rd., Unit K, Santa Fe Springs, CA 90670-7075, 562-802-1122. Good people to deal with and reasonable prices.
