Hey! I know this has been brought up a bunch but I got a question for anyone willing to answer. So I completed a drum to disc conversion on my 97 impreza wagon and I used rs cables. Problem is there is way too much slack and the e brake doesn’t even engage, and I even added a spacer at the adjustable part to try and pull that slack out but to no prevail. What e brake cables should I use?

When you say "RS cables" is that RS from the same generation as your car?

GC RS ebrake cables are about as good as youre gonna find for your car.

I’ll take a look at the video, one of the cables is from Subaru themselves and the other is from dorman I believe and there is a crazy amount of slack. So much infact, I added a spacer for the in cabin adjustability part to try and pull out all slack I can. Yet I still got too much. I just might grind the on hub e brake port and use my old cables

The GC, GM and GF have almost identical floor pans. If your cables are too long, then they are for a different generation car (perhaps mislabled?). I meant to find a video on how to adjust the parking brakes at the brakes themselves. I'd suggest trying that before scrapping the RS brake lines.
