    Re: New product tester needed!

    shifter was in good alignment. I didnt compare overall height but installed, it looks to have a shorter appearance. As the lip holding the knob on, it holds extremely well and now i cant get knob off. Maybe i was just tired after doing oil change, filter cleaning, coolant leak fix and then shifter install all at once.
    I have not felt any other shifter so i cant compare to any other model but compared to the oe shifter its awesome.

    Did you replace the shifter bushings as well?? Did you have any side to side play in gear before or after?

    the shifter included new bushings, and just about all the side to side play is now gone (just very little play now). The oem bushings are junk.

    Only thing is the lip holding the knob on should be shaved a little bit. Shift knob is very hard to remove now.

    Ordered mine about half year ago just never had time to install until yesterday. well mine shifter for some reason did not come with bushings so i ordered extra from creative steel. side to side play is drastically less. as far as shifts it doesn't feel that much shorter......

    Are you sure you didn't have an aftermarket replacement already? My Ralco shifter was much shorter. I would nearly hit the HVAC controls in 1/3/5/R with the factory shifter. No where near that now.

    hmm maybe i was expecting it to be as short as short throw on my friends c6 is. Don't get me wrong its day and night difference, it feels like it should have been that way from factory
