Default Parking Brake Rear Lines

I have a 95 2500 with club cab, 8' bed, and cummins motor. It's in great shape, but I failed inspection for a bad parking brake.

I need both back cables.

Here's the rub - the picture in the shop manual (see link) clearly shows that the LH cable should be on top. My vehicle has the RH cable on top. This matters because line flex is important to operation (it appears).

Given the lengths associated with the parts I'm looking at online, it seems to me unlikely that the LH cable should be on top.

The reason for this is that the LH cable is the exact same length on all models, but the RH cable is available in 2 lengths. This implies that the equalizer is in the same place in all models, but that in some (longer bed or club cab) the RH wire extends further forward.

Is there any chance the shop manual is wrong?

Anybody have any thoughts on this?
