    Is there a way to lengthen my parking brake cables. After the lift my parking brake cables look way too short. Its a 4" lift, I doubt the adjuster will go that far out. Any ideas or products you recommend?

    The garage seems to be full of useless junk these days. I usually just check the first two pages and move to the next forum. I think that's why there are so few responses to new posts now. That and most things have been covered already but the search feature doesn't allow you to find them easily. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    Lower the mount that is near the rear springs. Grind off the rivets and place somthing like spring bushing sleeves in there to space that mount away from the frame. My mount is a little different on my 82, but I just kept my mount in place and bolted on a 3/8 thick strap to lower the hole that the cable goes through.

    Thanks for the idea. I was actually thinking of trying that or attaching another bracket to the stock one. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
