Good thing there was still a bit of light outside for this shot. This is on my '96. Hope this is what you need.

Yep, it's mine, and I got a part of the frame done this fall, need to do the rest when the snow/salt is over with. This all started after last spring's snow storms. Gotta love the salted roads! FWIW, check out the rest of the body in that pic--it's super clean! This is originally a Denver area truck up until last year, and the frame was beautiful black then.:banghead

redwagon's pic is a '92-up equalizer, with the tension limiter built into the pedal assembly.
****EDIT***
With all the SFO/SMO/SMN problems, the photos have become confused, and that statement is now VERY misleading. At the time I'm editing this, there is NO photo in this thread of a '92-96 equalizer. The last one redwagon posted is a '78-91 type.

90Beater's is '78-91 style tension limiter/equalizer.



If it's loose & crooked, your autoadjusters are probably locked, & the e-brake lever, too. And the cables could be stretched. Cables are ~$20ea; hardware kit is like $60 for both sides.

Take your drums off, measure across the brake shoes horizontally, then apply & release the e-brake. The shoes should go back to the same measurement.

wwwway late bump does anybody know where I can buy this bracket + front cable for a 94 bronco? Is it dealer only? The previous owner totally removed it and I imagine all the ones at the junkyards around here are gonna be rotted away

Find the part number and google it. If rockauto doesn't have it Ebay usually does, and if they don't have it it's gonna be Junkyard only.

my problem is I don't even know what it consists of since it's entirely missing (just cables dangling there)...I don't know if it's a bracket + other parts or what and searching has given me mixed results such as Bronco Graveyard: http://shop.broncograveyard.com/E-Brake-Adjuster-Rod-Assembly/productinfo/32691/?gclid=CPOmqeyup8gCFVQXHwodCPIEbg

I just bought this new bronco today and have long since sold my Chilton for my last bronco I had years ago. Will pick a book up soon but trying to get a jump start on buying parts
