I currently have a UUC shifter on order through the group buy. All the initial post from members installing it sounded great. Lately though I have seen comments in a number of threads that make me wonder. There has been at least one broken unit which UUC did a great job standing behind. There have been a number of posts about the UUC shifters getting loose and sloppy after some amount of use. Others have complained that the UUC unit did not improve their shifting problems.

Let’s hear it from the members that have them. Spend the time and money or stay stock for now? Give us the pros and cons.:hmm:

I had the broken stick....Spend the money! It's worth it. Never sloppy....just perfect. If you are 1 out of 1 million and something does go wrong they will treat you like no other company ever has, period.

When they actually bother to answer their phone! :bigroll:

They are a great company with great products and I have dealt with them for years but they have this interesting habit of making themselves very difficult to buy from because they NEVER answer the phone! :banghead:

Sorry, can anyone tell that I'm annoyed at their phone answering practices! :hide:

Anyway, I wouldn't hesitate to buy the UUC shifter and it really does address some key areas of weakness along with the Lasstss bushings.

About the only other way to make it better may be some type of solid bushings for the shift rod pivot points. I think one of the other kits has these and that someone here made a hybrid of the two.

I have the B&M as well, but can't stand the noise it makes. So if someone wants it they can have it for $50 plus shipping. I've had it for three months. Send me a PM if you want it.

I have had my UUC Shifter for about 5 months. I think it was a great investment and greatly improved the lousy shifter that GM originally supplied. But, in all honesty, it only consisted of a new shifter stick and pivot, and the original bushings and linkage were retained in the change. So, the bushings are not corrected in the kit from UUC. If I were really hard on my shifter, those might show up as deficiencies sooner or later. But, so far, so good. I think that replacement bushings should have been included with the UUC kit, and then this wouldn't be a concern.

I've got the B&M and love it. This comparison, however, is against the OEM shifter; I've not experienced the UUC unit. Where is sharky1, he knows them both? Sharky1 ... where are you? You-hoo-o-o!:confused:

Harley Guy-
I too haven't received the UUC shifter yet, but it's got to be better then the stock setup. I have no qualms about my decision to get one and even though I don't have one 'in hand' :histeric: yet, am looking forward to mine. The stock one sucks.
