Can I remove this? ...Dana 44

I have a dana 44 with a passenger side offset not sure the year. It has cables coming from the front part of the inner drum that I believe to be e-brake cables that are not hooked up. My question is, can I remove them since they are just hanging out and not being used or will unhooking that cable change something on the drum that effects normal braking?

I would slide the drum off and remove it properly from the shoe.You can see where it comes in on the bottom of the pic.It won't affect the rest of the braking action. I see your in Seattle too,wheres the wheeling spots around here?

Thanks, I'll have to unhook it next time I take off the drum. I have'nt been out wheelin in a long while because I've had this long project on my flatfender that hasn't really been functional for the last few years till now. I used to live up north a ways previously and went to Walker Valley and the Darrington area, but I've heard Reider pit is ok in Goldbar area (I think) but I'm not much help in the seattle area.
