    Hi everyone,
    I wonder if anyone has a solution or ran into this problem. I have installed the new parking cables on my 70 runner and now see a difference in the lengths. At first I thought I didn't have it connected inside the drum correctly but it is. Any suggestions? Check out my snapshot. Thanks

    Are they reversed, the longer one should go to the other side, or are both cables the same length when not installed?

    The more I think about it, may have to do with the final shoe to drum adjustment. The shoes are only roughed in, with no final adjustments. I will give that a try. Thanks for the replys.
