Bolting it down? Mine just hangs there... but it should go over it.

I think he was talking about tightening the control arm bolts.. I thought stock it was was between the lower and upper control arms (bolted on to the upper control arm).

The e-brake cable bolted to the rear upper control arm on the driver side... and replacing that control arm with the RE adjustable ones does not give you a place to put it, so it hangs there... It should be above the arm anyway as to not snag it, stretch it, or break it while the suspension arms move.

Az how about at full flex? wouldn't that pull the cable too far up? I'm not against you or being sarcastic, i'm just curious.

no - because it is attached at the frame as well... and thats the reason for bumpstops.
