is the optional gasket recomended? and could you just use a sealant instead or should you use both?

bingman Year: 1999 Model: GT

  • You need to be using one or the other, but you don't need both. I recommend using the gasket as it makes for a cleaner, easier install and will reduce road noise and vibration. However, you can use the sealant if you are more comfortable using that instead. Hope this helps!

CaliSpecial Year: 1986 Model: GT

  • Yes! I currently have a hurst layback handle and ball on my tri-ax, but im taking it off this weekend and selling it for a change (nothing negative). They are all somewhat interchangeable parts. Putting back on a different steeda handle with a billet knob.

    Great Shifter/Installation Tip

    Just as everyone else says, this shifter is awesome! I bought my 98 Cobra used and it already had a Pro 5.0 shifter on it, but the Steeda Tri Ax is way better. The previous owner put way too much sealant on my shifter, so it was stuck to the transmission. I couldn't even get it off with a crow bar without damaging the trany. If you also have this problem, putting a 2x4 up against the side of the shifter and hitting the hell out of it with a hammer will get it off without damaging the transmission. I hope this helps!

    Way better than stock. Firm shifts with only a little more effort than stock. (Due to the shorter throw.) There is no way you will miss a second to third gear shift and forth gear to third gear is a no brainer. It even goes into reverse easier. Love it for sure.

    Quality Shifter

    Can't go wrong with Steeda or American Muscle! Install is easy with basic hand tools. Ordered the base gasket and used the small stock rubber shifter cover before installing the large cover. Nice and quiet. Handle installed in lower position and stock knob fits perfect, looks stock but shifts so much better. Order it now!

    Don't leave home without it

    Install was straightfoward and took an hour, great quality parts. Absolutely an improvement over the stock shifter, shifting is a breeze with the tri-ax, a must for any Mustang owner.

    A Great Upgrade

    This shifter is one of the few things I've spent money on to upgrade where the stock piece was still functioning perfectly fine- and I can say it was well worth it. Shifts are firm and precise, no more missed gears, or fear of damaging the transmission from shifting too hard. Short throws are perfect for a performance car- Mustangs should have shifted this nicely from the factory. Makes the car a lot more fun to drive even when not driving fast. As with all Steeda products this is a well made piece, durable billet construction and a simple install as well. Well worth it.

    Great Shifter!

    I'm a complete amateur when it comes to installing anything, in fact this is the first thing I have ever installed in a car. I followed the included instructions as well as the ones posted on AM and it went smoothly. I love the shifter, it definitely has a work in period, after a 2 weeks, it is better than ever. Worth noting, I bought the 11 buck gasket as well, worked well for me, saved me the time and hassle of using silicone. Completely satisfied with the product, the shipping was very fast as well.

    Great Upgrade

    I bought this shifter after reading all of the positive reviews. Its a great upgrade, well worth all of the money. It took about 30 minutes to install, the included directions were great. The throw is shorter, it feels firmer, and it goes into gear easily.

    A definite improvement from the sloppy stock shifter.

    Overall, this is a really good product. Maybe not a Hurst, but it does the job. Shifts with this stick are crisp and short, not like the spongy feel of the stock shifter, so definitely worth the cost. I'd advise giving yourself just a "smidge" more daylight between the shifter lever and its stop bolts than the install instructions suggest. I've had the trans jump out of reverse a couple of times and might have to go back in to make those adjustments. I also doped the lock bolt/nut threads with thread locking compound just to be sure they stay put.

    For the race car driver in us all

    I cannot even begin to imagine driving any manual transmission car without a short throw shifter in it after using this shifter. Shifts are firm, precise, and no more missing gears! One of my favorite mods to my stang!
