Hi all,

Does anybody know what this part is called?

I accidentally broke this thing while lowering my (pictured) rear wheel axle. I tried looking at a crapton of different parts website but found nothing! The infuriating this is that I see this thing on my Repair Manual, but the name isn't called out!! You can probably spot where it broke. It sounds like a metal part that supports the rear, but I'm not sure. I am trying to find a replacement for it.

Anyway, any help is appreciated!

Edit: Image embedding doesn't seem to work. I'm linking to imgur instead :)

More pics may help, but maybe the parking brake cable?

Second vote on the parking brake cable. If it can be safely done, try activating the brake while holding the cable to see if you can feel it working.

You guys are right! Parking brake cable! I could feel it loosening when I disengage the parking brake! Thank you very much!
