  Clean and crisp shifts have never been easier!
By on 9/1/2014
Image uploaded by Nicolas F. I had a chance to get a feel for this shifter in my friend's 2002 GT before I bought it. I was sold on how short the throw was and how clean and confidently the shifts register. I installed this in my 1988 LX and it was a massive upgrade over the stock shifter.

It should be noted that installing the shifter itself is a breeze and requires no advanced mechanical skills; it's pretty much just plug and play. The issue I did have is that removing and especially reinstalling the center console on the Foxbody was the most ridiculous process I've ever had to deal with. I basically had to pull apart half the trim inside the car just to access two lower shifter boot bolts. Putting it back on was even harder, as the lower part of the shifter handle sits slightly higher than the stock one, making me have to really twist and force the plastic to the point where I thought it was going to break.

A neat bonus is the light amount of transmission whine under heavy load. I personally find it really satisfying, but others may find it annoying. Regardless, expect some new noises with this shifter.

Lastly, I highly recommend getting a new shifter bushing (literally just drops into place) and to get the pre-cut silicone gasket also offered on this site. They made the install a lot faster and easier overall.

Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

  A Must Have
By on 6/16/2014
This is my second time installing this Steeda Shifter (had one in my first mustang years ago). A short throw shifter is a must have, and you can't beat the quality and performance of the Tri-Ax shifter. With multiple shift positions, you can truly find the best comfort level for your driving style. Quick easy install in about an hour. You get what you pay for with performance parts, and you don't want an unreliable shifter.

  Excellent Shifter
By on 6/6/2014
Image uploaded by Joe D. The Steeda Tri-Ax shifter really does take out all of the slack from the stock shifter. It is way more precise and fun to drive now that it goes into gear a little easier. If you miss 2nd to 3rd gear... you shouldn't be driving stick. The point of the shifter is clearly performance, so it does take a LITTLE extra strength to move it over the stock one, but your trade off is a much shorter and quicker shift. Worth it.

  Nice solid feel!
By on 9/18/2014
Bought 2 weeks ago after reading reviews and researching between Pro 5.0, MGW, and the Steeda Tri-ax. Watched the install video, and all went well, done in less than an hour. .Also bought the gasket kit and new bushing, made it easy and no messy RTV. Much better than stock shifter, and was on sale too! Goes right into reverse even when cold, never did that with stock shifter!!!

  Nice!

Got this during the Latemodel Restoration Steeda sale for a steal. Couldn't be happier. Easy install (30 minutes). I re-used my factory shift knob. I really noticed the improved shift response. No issues going into reverse and no more missed third gear. High quality components. I almost hated covering it up. Made in U. S. A.!

  Awesome Shifter!
By on 9/18/2014
I had purchased this shifter never having felt the stock shifter because the car is my first project, it's an 84' Mustang. The install was very simple and easy and the shifts feel very nice. Not as short as the MGW shifter but its definitely a nice solid feel. Love it so far!

Image uploaded by Robert K. This is the best shifter that I have had on a Mustang. Shorter throws and offset springs make going from 2nd to 3rd much easier.
