    Default Question for people using the R31 rear end setup. RE: handbrake cables

    Hey guys,

    Iam getting to the final stage of getting my R31 rear end conversion finalised.

    But, iam having trouble (very frustrated, ready to throw spanners at things!) with the handbrake cables.

    I was told a while ago that you can use the standard R31 cables, but they are nowhere near long enough and have differant fittings/mounts etc.....
    Am i doing something wrong? Do I need certain cables (ie 2 left or 2 right side cables etc....) Or do i need a set of JDM AE86 Disc h/brake cables? Same connections to the caliper I believe..........

    So, Iam wondering what other people have done? What cables used?
    Do I have to get custom cables made up?

    Any info is much apprieciated......

    (Please save me from Spanner rage)

    Regards,
    JoJo

    Bump

    I know this conversion has been done by many people on here, even if you use the R31 calipers on a hilux diff etc, the info would really help me out.

    Thanks guys
