e brake question

I put the wilwood rear kit on my 67 and bought the lokar kit to finish the e brake. My question is do i need to set the car on the ground before i cut my cables to compensate for suspension travel? I dont want to cut them to short and the first time i hit a bump have the cable get tight. Also i have read on the forum about some people routing the passenger side cable over the axle? Is that a better way to run the cable so i can remove the factory center section? Any help would be great. Thanks

Re: e brake question

I would at least get the suspension level , as it would be on the ground. The car on jack stands could help.
Won't the stock mid equalizer loop help here?
