one of my emails eventually worked for me, but never did get a response from the other, but pm's on expo were the quickest way to get answers. he took his phone number off his website, so that wasnt even an option for me.
however, in for answer as i just did this conversion and ebrake cables are all i have left to complete.
i know the 05 sterling cables will not work, and neither will the stockers from my 03. nor a combination of the 2. one thing that looked like it would work without spending money was moving the bracket on the frame forward about 3". this would be the bracket near the rear of the van on the drivers side where the 2 cables converge together. i ran out of time on the borrowed lift to finish and havent ahd time since to mess with it.
