i am helping my friend fix his car and he purchased it with rear dosk brakes. However the cables were MIA. I already welded the handle and he purchased some cables from a local Auot parts store. They are way to short. The ones he needs are 71 inches long wihthe sheeth about 45 inches. What cables do we need?

Yes sir, on 87-92 cars, this cable retains the same termination point at the e-brake handle and the outer sheath snaps in to the stock retainer at the frame rail.

I tried installing these cables on my 91 GT; already has a disc brake and 5-lug conversion. The end that clips into the caliper was an inch or two too short with the other end of the sheath clipped into the body. I'm pretty sure I had it routed as logically as possible. Is there an alternate cable I should use?

You'll need to loosen the e brake assembly inside the car to allow for more cable at the caliper end. These are a tight fit, but will work. There is an adjustment nut, more than likely will have to take a piece of your center console off to access this nut. With it backed off more, you'll get the cable in easily and then have to tighten it back down.

Glad you figured this out. They fit very well as long as you route them correctly. Mine required adjustment from inside the vehicle on the ebrake assembly to fit properly.
