Parking Brake Cable, Use 79 or 89 Cable?

I am replacing the 7.5 rear end and brakes in my 79 Mustang with an 8.8 rear end and brakes from and 89 Mustang. I need to order a new parking brake cable. Does any one know which cable I should order? There are two different part numbers. One for a 79 Mustang, and another for an 89 Mustang.

I believe the e-brake handle and adjuster are the same from 79 - 86. In 87, Ford changed the design, then again in 93. I think the 79 cable will work with the 89 drum brakes, but not certain if the 89 cable will work with the 79 e-brake handle and adjuster. Might just buy both and take the wrong one back.
