Clutch pedal goes all the way down, no tension at all

Today while driving around in my 89 foxbody 5spd as I pressed down on my clutch pedal I heard a snap sound and my clutch pedal went all the way down. It doesn’t come back up either. I’m guessing my clutch cable has snapped. Now before I order a new one should I get one of those billet quadrants and other parts as well? I prefer that this doesn’t happen again and am willing to spend a little extra on what I need. What all do I need to fix this? Cable, quadrant, etc...?

Yes it sounds like the cable snapped. I would get an aluminum quadrant and firewall adjuster and do yourself a favor and get an oem Ford Motorsports cable for it.

Ok, now go back and replace the adjustable cable with the MM/OEM cable and firewall adjuster. The adjustable cables are crap and will snap on you.

Yeah only the OEM ones use the specific Ford multi-layered design. The aftermarket ones are all just a cable in a rubber sleeve which will bind up and snap.
