Does anybody have a definitive answer on which cables, if any, can be used on a disc brake rear end swap? This is going into the SS and I need cables that will fit.

I know that it needs to be longer. So you could use one from a 4x4 Long bed, or a 4 door blazer. I have also read, that the Camaro/Firebird cables will work as well.

Thanks...it came out of a 4d Blazer and I still have the cables. Unfortunately, people don't seem to know how to remove the cables without damaging the retaining clips...or what ever they are called.

yeah, when they get rusted and corroded, they're a bastard to get off. I've been known to cut them off before.
