Default how to replace emergency brake cable??

I got a 95 f150 with 5 speed and the front section of my emergency brake cable snapped. Its the piece that connects to the pedal and other end goes to second section which connects under driver door. I got a new cable from autozone and when I went to replace it the cable seemed to be about an inch short. Did I get the wrong cable or do I need todo something differently?

Thanks in advance,
Luke

You may have gotten a cable for a different wheelbase length. The search, I have posted the link for, is for my truck, a 96 F150 4x4. The cables are for front, intermediate and rear and they vary in length for each section, depending on the overall wheelbase of the truck.

Depends where you buy it and the brand. Also are you replacing just the front cable or also both rears? Front and back together is about a 2 hour job at most.
