I've had several FWD owners in the last year or so always ask me to make a repair kit for the shift and select cables. Seems they have this rubber type push on end that falls apart in time. I can make these but need some cabe end samples. Anyone have some old junk cables? All I need is the very ends. I may be able to make them with just some pictures of the ends and some measurements but one would need to have a dial caliper. I do have the parts here that has the stud.

Thank you

Except...... Rodney is a great guy who specializes in GM parts, and he's willing to put something together for us, which, in todays age is very rare for someone to do something for older J body owners, so I don't think its very wise to tell us all you're not even interested.

Never did I say once he was not a great guy. I never delt with the guy to make such a judgment. I just figured why waste the time to reinvent the part when it is already available.

Now on to making something we might not actually have... do we have a true rear wheel disk conversion at an affordable price? hint hint

those only work for the 92+ cables.. the 91 and older have a plastic clip that snaps on.. :)
They also don't work on the older ball style cables, (like I am forced to run right now, from an '88), cause GM wants 400+ freaking dollars EACH for shift cables.

If anything we need complete cables for purchase. Something that can site close to a header and last.

:p

Yup. Check out the Suspension FAQ.
