Default Parking brake cable

Hello, I own a 2003 Honda Pilot. I noticed that my parking brake pedal would not spring up like it used to when applied. I checked the pedal and I noticed that the cable would not slide back. I removed the floor sill, moved the carpet out of the way, removed the metal plate that covers the front cable and noticed that there was a great amount of rust around the front cable. I put some loose nut on the two bolts that hold down the cable and then removed them. Once I removed the two nuts, I was able to lift the cable and causing a slack so the pedal was now back up. I removed the front cable and rest assure it was completely seized. I was able to check the back cables by pulling on them and they moved easily pulling and releasing. I could hear the linkage click on the rear brakes when pulling and releasing. I picked up a new cable from Honda, started to installed it but to my surprise, I was not able to attach the two cables for the rear. There was a gap of 1 to 2 inches between the front cable and the two rear cables. Is there an adjustment screw somewhere to give me some slack or do I have to remove the calipers in the back, the discs, and completely bring the shoe roller adjustments all the way in.
If anyone else already did this front cable change, is that what I have to do to narrow down the gap?
Thanks for any advise.
