Is the Katech shifter the only replacement that has the threaded end?

TIA,

I love my UUC, but I bet the KaTech piece is nice too. I love their TB I had.

Does the shifter come with a tap kit in order to put your shift knob back on? thought I saw that somewhere....

What exactly is required to install one of these? I'm not a complete idiot with a set of tools but, well perhaps not far from it ;)

Two piece design, with isolating rubber / urethane material sandwiched in between the male and female rods. Hmm, looks familiar.

UUC.

Minus 150 bones.

UUC shifter and $30.00 polly mount bushings (that are a must have regardless of which shifter you get) comes to $399.00 and you dont need a tap kit (included in the Katech kit) to reattatch your shift knob. over 200 happy (I hope!!) customers and counting with the original 2 piece shifter.

So really one extra step, =110 bones for another mad with the bushings? Thats why I have a katech w/uuc... Im not trying to bash uuc but it is about time someone came out with a product as good as it without the heavy handed price tag. Even the price of these bushings is pretty high for what they are. They are good, but for a few pieces of polyuerathane? If Id known what they amounted to, I woulda gone to home depot and figured it out myself.

Reverse engineered products always come in cheaper than the originals. Katech is a class outfit (from what I've seen), but that looks like a UUC piece with a Katech logo on it.

I'm happy to have paid a little extra for the original, PLUS the fantastic service from Luke at Lindsay Cadillac. :thumbsup:
