Product Reviews

I have put this shifter in a 94 GT and most recently my 98 Cobra and it was my first go-to mod to improve the driver experience.

Install is quick and the shifter is true quality. The bump-stops prevent over engagement and each shift is smooth with positive engagement. The new handle also locates the shifter closer to the driver for more natural shifting position and effort.

Hands down the best one on the market. Will always come back to Steeda.

I bought the Tri-Axe for my 1993 Cobra street car many years ago and love it! I have driven many mustangs with many different shifters, this one is the best. Positive feel, shift locks, never miss a gear, slam it has hard as you want, adjustable handle it rocks! I even bought a second for my Open track car, a 1993 Cobra R. It has never let me down as it sees a lot of shifting. Thanks Steeda for setting the benchmark all others are measured against!

I've had this shifter in my '97 GT for at least 150K miles.
Sill works well. I added a little extra sound deadening material shortly after installing and then redid it after the throwout bearing was replaced a 100K miles later, but that was it.

I bought this shifter for my 2001 GT and never missed a shift ever again, i lost a race to a 350z for trying to shift with the stock oem wimpy shifter, i installed this shifter and raced that the 350z and didn't miss 3rd shift no more and left him 2 cars behing LOl
awsome product

We have had the Steeda TriAx Shifter on our 94 GT for more than 10 years and 60,000 miles! It still shifts as slick & positive as the day we installed it. There has been absolutely NO degradation in performance, we have never missed a gear with this shifter at any time. Now that is saying a lot. The height & position is just perfect for me and I can rest my hand on it while driving comfortably with no stress.
Only problem I had was that once the handle bolts vibrated loose & backed out at a stoplight...LOL, I was scared that I had broken my tranny or something! Nothing was busted when I pulled the boot off, one bolt was out just laying there, one bolt was loose & the shifter would flop around. Reinstalled everything using some Locktite this time & never had a problem since! I really trust the Steeda TriAx! Solid & Bulletproof!

I have this shifter in my 95 cobra. The shifter is much more precise and and firm than the stocker it replaced.

Had many shifters in the past. Installed the Tri-ax on my 2000 GT. Much better than other shifters I've had on mustangs or other cars. I would strongly suggest if you are looking to get rid of your sloppy factory shifter, get the Steeda.

I have a completely stock '93 GT Black/Black and have strived to keep it totally stock. After I drove a friends '89 GT with the Tri-Ax shifter, I had to make the change. I'm saving the factory shifter in the Tri-Ax box just to say I have it! I've always enjoyed driving my GT and it's even better now! I highly recommend the Tri-Ax to increase the enjoyment of driving your Mustang!

I put this shifter in my 94' cobra in 2008! This shifter was an excellent application to my car and enhanced it's performance and looks! The throw of it is so much quicker and smoother than your usual slow stock one! Don't buy hurst, buy STEEDA!!
