E-brakes cable help

Im swapping my dana 35 with a 8.25 and was wondering if my emergency brake cables would work in the 8.25. Thank you

The e-brake cables on the 2000 axle aren't going to be the right length, the drivers side will be too short.
At 3" of lift, you would probably want a pair of passenger sides late model cables.

I'm almost positive that the axle end e-brake connections are the same across all years, but I'm not 100%, sorry. I know they are the same on '97+ but I don't have experience with the earlier models (have never seen anything about the e-brake cables mentioned in any of the swap threads though, so I've never seen anyone mention any differences).

Well the 2000 doesn't have the cables but mine are less than a year old so didn't really wanna buy new ones unless I have to. If I do have to get new ones where should I get some?

If yours are less than a year old, try to re-use them.
You would probably just need to work something out with the little spring hangers at the body, so they don't melt to the muffler.
