Rear Disc Parking Brake Cables - Caddy Seville/Eldo conversion

The cables supplied with the conversion kits are just fine for a stock ride-height car.

I found out (the hard way) if you lower the car, the slack in the cables will be used up, and the parking brakes will be constantly applied, or with suspension travel the crimped ends on the sleeve will be pulled out!

Two Options:
Inline Tube (the brakeline people) will gladly make you a set of custom cables.
NAPA has a set of cables, part #UP 95812 that work just great! $18.50 each.

The NAPA cable spec's are:
Cable Length = 41"
Sleeve Length = 31.25"
They have the spring-steel "finger-grippers" on each end, and will click right into the frame hole and the caliper hole.
