I would upgrade the quadrant just because the stocker is a plastic piece of crap. However, if you do, get the firewall adjuster to go with it.
A stock cable can be found any any oreilly's, autozone, advanced auto, etc. Or, you could call up Tousley Ford and get one for much less even after shipping. However, check out your local stores first and see what the price is. For reference, you're looking at around $90 plus shipping from tousley. My guess is that it will be around 130-140 for a stock cable based on the suggested retail from the tousley website. Tousley Ford Parts Depot
