Wondering what kind of transmission you have? Click Here to find out!

Better, Faster Shifts. Get the crisp shifts your Cobra should have had from the factory with a Steeda Tri-Ax shifter. The Steeda Tri-Ax shifter has a unique design that will make your shifts faster, more precise, and even more comfortable. Make missed shifts a thing of the past with the Tri-Ax.

Innovative Design. The Steeda Tri-Ax uses a number of unique design features to provide the best shifting experience possible. Up top, there's a two-position adjustable handle with a three-axis bend that puts it closer to you than a straight handle. Below, there are offset pre-loaded springs so you'll never hunt for third gear again.

Legendary Steeda Quality. The Tri-Ax shifter is precision CNC machined out of billet aluminum to be extremely lightweight. It includes a Steeda exclusive boot guard to protect the inner factory boot, and has adjustable positive stops to protect the transmission.

Application. This Steeda Tri-Ax shifter is designed for the 2003-2004 SVT Cobra with the T56 manual transmission.

          Best Shifter on the Market!

          I had a Tri-Ax Shifter in my last GT so I knew exactly what I was getting into. Smoother Shifts and no longer missing third. You can't go wrong with this shifter!

          DOES NOT FIT

          So I had purchased my cobra and was not aware of it already having the TREMEC T56 Transmission in it. If yours has this transmission, the Steeda Tri-Ax will not fit due to it having 4 bolts and the TREMEC having 6.

          Tr-Ax Shifter

          Easy to install, excellent throw reduction and gets rid of that annoying Mustang angle. A little noisy but I knew that going in.

          Works great

          Does exactly what it is supposed to do. Take some time and play with it a little as it is so much closer and tighter now differentiating between 2nd and 4th is a different feel on the shift and i went back into 2nd a couple times from 3rd. All good now though after a couple days with it.

          Great shifter upgrade

          I debated for awhile between the MGW and the Tri-Ax and I'm very happy with my choice and that I ordered it worry free from AM. easy install, only took about an hour and that was taking my time. Essential mod for anybody who wants to enjoy the drive a little more

          This shifter finds all the gears on its own without effort/thinking. Crisp smooth shifts.

          Awesome shifting and tight feel!

          I had this installed at Extreme Auto Works in San Luis Obispo and they did an awesome job. It shifts great and gears are very tight. I don't really hear any annoying noise from it. I also installed the Raxiom Digital shifter. Shop had to custom fit the knob so it would not get loose in the future. I recommend this short shifter.

          short throw

          Just had to get rid of that stock shifter, not good enough for a Cobra so I chose a Steeda and it made a big difference, feels solid and positive, I even used a shorter stick which feels a lot better and also installed a real leather boot to complete and complement the install...Steeda is top shelf equipment, I would highly recommend it and the install was simple with good directions to guide you. Good value for your money.

          Steeda

          The shifter works great! love the adjustable hight and I liked the fact it was aluminum for the weight, but also because its not going to rust.

          This is a great shifter! Installation was quick & easy. I recommend changing the transmission fluid to Royal Purple while installing this product.

          T56 Steeda Triax Shifter

          This shifter made a world of difference when shifting. Nice and crisp shifts, easy to find gears, and a more comfortable location than the stock shifter. The only negative is that the transmission noises are a lot more noticable.

          Awesome shifter, what a difference in shifting. I also purchased an ajustable clutch cable and both were installed for $200. I will recommend this shifter to all my stang friends. American Muscle is the place for all your stang needs.
