I put on 2 coats of the liquid tape, I covered it really well, is that all there is to it?

I left it zip tied for now, can I move the clip that was holding it before? Or should I go with the hose clamp?

ok heres the pic, sorry if its too large and too close, its the best i could do with no jack and the wheel on

i believe the clamp was 2-1/2" or 3"

i opened the clamp, snaked it between the ABS and the toe rod and around the cable and tighten up

I see what you did, you clipped it in then zipped it to the trailing arm

Have you used your e-brake since doing that?

I've had mine like that for a while...I just unclipped the cables from the body and ziptied them to the arm (i have pfadt arms so its even easier becuase they are open). Unclipping them probably takes the tension off so the ebrake still works. I put two 35lb zip ties on each one.
