Parking Brake Cable Length

I bought a Dorman C660979 parking brake cable for my 2007 Sedan from Rock Auto. It measures quite a bit shorter than the one I pulled off (61" vs. 65.5"). Anyone else have this problem? I looked around and most of the auto parts stores list a cable that is 5" shorter than stock. Is my only option the dealer?

Just kidding, the 2008 cable didn't work (Raybestos). Correct length but the fitting that runs the cable into the car was too big. THe OEM partnumber 4643052210 crosses to a Dorman C660977. I'll try that one this time. Maybe 3rd time is a charm..
