crx rear disc

I put a set of crx rear disc on my sedan .. But my ebrake isn't working. So I am wondering which cables was I supposed to use? I was told 4 door DA cables cuz crx and DA coupe r too short..  Tried adjusting them still nothing.. Did I use the wrong cables or could it be something else. Thanks

I tried adjusting it at the ebrake.. Still nothing is there another way to adjust it? Haven't really had time to mess with it cuz if work.  But it's all new bushings front and rear hopefully I can finish and put the front on this weekend and try messing with the back again.. Cuz need to adjust my passenger rear toe cuz even with the camber all the way negative it's still positive.. Thanks for the help

Has brand new calipers on both side as well as ebc pads and new rotors. Tried adjusting it today.. Noticed 2 of the brackets weren't attached so I routed them the right way a tried again.. Its tighter but car still moves.. Could it be that I haven't put my brake lines, booster or MC on yet? Cuz in process of doing brake tuck since going h2b. Thanks for the help

i dont think the booster/ MC and prop valve has to do with it. when i did my rear disk i didnt install the booster/ MC and prop valve til a week later and handbrake was working perfect.

Well was thinking since the calipers are brand new maybe the pistons aren't out enough to make contact with rotor... The ebrake handle gets tight when I pull. But I ,can push the car foward.like 5 inches.. And when its in the air with brake engaged the wheels still turn..

You may need to drive the car before you get it to work.  I did a rear disk swap for a buddy of mine and we had a problem like that he took the car for the first test drive and when he got back the ebrake worked fine.
