        5 Top Rated Questions

        are the springs and washers necessary to assembly

        • The springs included with the SR Performance Short Throw Sport Shifter are replacements for the tension spring to allow adjustment of the shifter's tension. The washers are needed for the install and will go on the bolts connecting the shifter to the transmission to evenly distribute the clamping force.

        Do I need to replace the rubber bushing that connects the shifter to the transmission?the old one fits small and I don’t know we’re to order the right one or if I even need it?

        • The SR Performance Short Throw Sport Shifter is designed to reuse the OEM shifter bushing. This will also work with any aftermarket bushings designed to work with the stock shifter.

        Helpful (1)

        do you need a new seal while installing the new shifter?

        • Yes, it would be required to get a new shifter gasket or apply a bead of RTV when installing this shifter.

        will this work with the hurst competition shifter handle in a 93 5.0

        • We have not tested the SR Performance Short Throw Sport Shifter with the Hurst handle, however this shifter has a standard shift handle bolt pattern and will accept any shift handle that will fit the stock shifter.

        I just wanted a new one but mines an automatic can i still use it

        • Unfortunately this will not work with the automatic transmission. Only the manual.

            You get what you pay for.

            It served me pretty well until now, a year after I bought it. The short throw is very nice compared to the original length, but make sure you Lock-Tite the side-to side adjustment screws. Mine went too tight and when trying to push it into reverse, I snapped the bottom piece of aluminum in half. Luckily I had my Vice-Grips with me to use as a temp shifter! Might as well pay a bit more and not risk this, in my opinion.

            Love the product for about 2 weeks. Then the screws came loose and shifter was worthless paid money to have it professionally installed had to pay money to have my old shifter reinstalled call the American muscle and no warranty nothing they could do about it. Do not recommend anyone this product

            Overall it's a nice shifter and good for the price. Some of the threads were a little improperly cut, and the shifter has a slight side to side rotation which I can't figure out.

            Bought this product a year ago for my 1984 GT350 anniversary edition with the T-5 and loved it for about a week. Then everytime I drive it I have to re-tighten the screws. I don't recommend this product.

            You get what you pay for

            Install for this part took about an hour or an hour and a half and was fairly simple. Make sure to add threadlocker to all the bolts because they will come lose and even with the threadlocker, they won’t stay tight for too long. At first I had no problems with the shifter, it felt better than stock so I was happy, but after about 2 or 3 months the shifter started coming loose a but and clicking as I shifted. I’ve had it in for 4 months now and haven’t really been hard in my shifting, but it’s started to become a but of a nuisance. This shifter is great as a spot holder if you’re low on cash, but I would recommend just saving a little longer and buying a better shifter if you want it to last any longer than 6 months.

            Feels good, bolts feel cheap

            I had to make custom shims to avoid the shifter sliding on the two part top of the shifter and use significantly more thread locker to stop the bolts from backing out. You have to cut sheet metal to make it fit but I didn't discredit the shifter for that, it's just an old ford design.

            Great value when installed properly

            It definitely has quality for the price compared to my worn out stock shifter. But if it's falling apart on you when you're driving then you didn't torque the bolts properly or use thread locker because that's how it got it's name. There's so many adjustable features on this shifter and they give you extra hardware so you can set it up exactly the way you want it. I'm giving this 4 stars however because the studs that mount the shifter to the transmission are garbage. It's only 20 lb-ft of torque but one of the nuts just spun on the stud and I had to ditch them all. I had to use my original bolts which was fine, because they're bolts and not a stud and nut combo.

            Good price

            Ordered this for a 98 GT as the factory shifter had seen better days. This seems like a solid shifter and really shortened the shift throw. I’ve noticed it’s a little difficult sometimes getting into reverse but this could be a transmission issue, it is a 98 with 93,000 miles. This was simple to install and was an improvement over the stock shifter
