Will the stock shifter knobs fit on the Tri-Ax Handle or are aftermarket knobs required? Tried to ask Steeda but never received a response.

    Steeda Shift Lever - EXCELLENT

    Fast shipping and 15 minute install. Reuses factory boot and shift knob. I was very pleased with this product! It made more difference than I was expecting for less than $40. The shift lever is smaller and much lighter than the factory unit. The factory shift lever has a rubber isolator clamped into the middle of the lever that adds weight and a more rubbery shift feel. With the Steeda lever, shifts are TIGHTER and more PRECISE with SHORTER THROWS. I didn't notice any appreciable difference in the amount of vibration being transmitted through the Steeda lever. Reaching 5th gear is easier with the Steeda lever. Their is a slight clicking sound as you shift, which I like. I imagine it sounds somewhat similar to shifting through the metal gate of a Lambo (doesn't hurt to dream, does it? haha). Shift effort with the shorter lever increases slightly, but not enough to be annoying; its a muscle car, after all. Considering the difference this product made, I can hardly imagine that spending 5-6 times as much would be worth it for a complete short shift kit. I am very pleased with my purchase. GO AMERICAN MUSCLE! This is the best performance enthusiast parts site on the web.

    It definitely shortens the throw. Easy to install. The only thing that i don't like about it is that at the bottom of the handle where it bolts on there is nothing to absorb vibrations like the stock handle. The stock handle had like a rubber insulator on the bottom where it bolts on. Other than that it is a great product and i highly recommend it!

    Love It!

    If you hate the stock shifter, but don't want to go with a full short throw kit, THIS is the answer! Much shorter than stock, weighs A LOT less, and NO handle flex. Much shorter throws and firmer shifts. You can now put a cup in the front cup holder! Works with the stock shift knob and boot. Incredibly easy install. Awesome product all by itself! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

    Don't Settle For OEM Product

    I bought this because my 93 GT had a the old manufacturer shift handle. Boy was reaching for 5th felt ever so far away. After I swapped out the handle, it's a lot better and I do a lot less leaning when I shift. One thing I wished I would've done was wait and bought the whole package, Shifter AND Shift Handle that comes with it!

    This lever is the perfect solution. I already had a short throw shifter that I picked up here at American Muscle but the shift know was just not in the right location. This lever moved the shift knob left and back. The shift know is now in the perfect spot for me. 3rd gear no longer a problem.

    Steeda shift handle

    Nice shift handle. Good price point and easy to install. A big upgrade over the stock one. It's a little shorter and it has a bend in it which makes it easier to grab.

    Great shift Handle!

    I used this in conjunction with a SR Short Throw Shifter. The SR handle was straight up and would pinch my hand into the center console. This handle offset it further back and made it much more comfortable to drive and made shifts a lot smoother giving it a higher mechanical advantage due to the angle of the handle. Great purchase, highly recommended!

    I hated the stock shifter. I was gonna buy short throw shifter kit. Couldn't afford it so I just got the shifter handle. I'm actually very happy. Alot easier to shift just with handle. Thanks AM 4 the good work.
