    Default SN 95 8.8 Swap into 86 Elan, E Brake Cables?

    I'm swapping a 3.73 8.8 rear out of an SN 95 Mustang into my 86 Elan. The original 7.5 has drum brakes, whereas the 8.8 has disks.

    Can anyone suggest what E Brake cables to use with this swap?

    The Turbo Coupe brake cables work pretty good as well. At least that is what I am using with the SN95 Cobra rear setup on my Bird. My cables were kinda suspect so I replaced them from the foot brake pedal all the way back.
