How/where to install 1991 Mustang T5 Clutch Cable?

Had a crappy cable when I bought it (took like 150lbs of force to push it in), eventually snapped.
Bought an autozone one (this one felt true to the clutch, not hard at all), which ended up breaking on itself looked like it was due to it being stuck on something under the car. Was left stranded at a gas station for hours until I finally got a new cable (Took my cable back to autozone and they replaced it for free.) and installed it right then and there. This new cable is almost as hard to press as the first cable I ever had...

Now I parked my car at my house and uninstalled my cable. I really want to know how to properly install my cable, because the previous one looked like it rubbed pretty bad and I don't want this to happen.

On Image 3, this is where it looks like it got stuck, and I am wondering where I should route the cable through, because it just does not seem correct to me.

In the 4th pic,the cable is to the left,mixing it up with the steering shaft.Re-route it to the right.away from the steering shaft.The cable should have a natural curve with no binding.If you have to,start the cable from the bell housing and work your way up to the firewall.

Ford makes the best cable on the market. It costs a little more, but feels good and lasts forever.

I personally think steeda makes a high quality Clutch Cable. The also have a very good Quadrant and firewall adjuster.
