Parking Brake Equalizer Rod Assembly

1997 Cherokee Sport;
Does anyone know of a company that makes the parking brake adjustment assembly? I have been told by Jeep that they do not make this part as a replacement part anymore. This assembly is composed of the bracket, equalizer rod, equalizer locknut, and the equalizer (as described in the Haynes Repair Manual). My problem is that this whole assembly is totally rotted out with rust, so adjustment of the brake cables is not possible. It may be that the only source will be a salvage yard. Anyone with any information or ideas would be appreciated. Thanks

I'm having this same issue. Has anyone found a replacement online or elsewhere?

It is doubtful that anybody besides Jeep makes this assembly.

The best solution is to post in the JeepForum Parts Wanted section or look in the Parts For Sale and Part Out section. Find somebody down south or out west that can help you out with a non-rusty assembly.

Lately I've been trying to buy only new, upgraded parts since I can currently afford it. I think I'll get over sourcing this one used. Thanks.

YOu can make one with propane torch and some all-thread if nothing else pans out. It's not as elegant, but it's effective.

I ended up going to a junk yard. I agree with AZ Jeff you could make one fairly easy. All thread rod with jam nut and red loctite. You could make one for pretty cheap.
