has anyone gotten one of the cheaper short shifters off ebay and figured it was just a piece of crap...i dont want to spend 150 bucks just to shorten the throws a little so the cheap prices of ebay are a little tempting lol.
I bought one for $38 bucks shipped last year off Ebay and it works perfectly. You should be fine although they make a few of them. Which ones are you looking at? The one I bought came with this huge chrome ball which worked for awhile until I bought a nice knob from HIJACKER.
