The Steeda Sport shifter is far superior to other competitors offerings and very competitively priced! This shifter has a revised pivot ratio that gives you short throws while maintaining a comfortable reach. Comes with a billet aluminum top plate that features adjustable shifter stops to prevent transmission damage from over extension of the shift handle. This feature is not found in any of the current competitions offerings. Nickel-plated lever provides smooth shifts and longevity. Install with our improved urethane bushings (sold separately) for even greater control.

Note: Unassembled Steeda Sport Shifter Kit also available.

Testimonial

I am not a performance driver anymore. These days my Mustang is my daily driver and weekend cruiser. So my needs in a short throw shifter are somewhat different than those of most enthusiasts. I wanted a shifter with a somewhat shorter throw than stock but still long enough for my relaxed shifting style. But most of all, the shifter had to be as quiet as stock. I tried one of the very expensive performance shifters and liked the shorter throw but hated the amount of noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) that it introduced, so after about a month I went back to the shop and had them reinstall the stock shifter. I found out later that the NVH problem was due to damage caused by an improper installation so I don't know what it would have been like had it been properly installed.

Once back to using the stock shifter, I realized how much I still wanted a shorter throw but without the NVH so I started asking around and came to the conclusion that the Steeda Short Throw Shifter might be my best option. After some conversation with the helpful people at Steeda, I ordered and received their shifter. I had a different shop do the installation this time. Driving away after the installation, I noticed an immediate difference that brought a grin to my face. This shifter was exactly what I was looking for! It has a nice throw that is shorter than stock but not too extreme. It has very precise movement and best of all, it is just as quiet as the stock shifter! There is a slight click as it is pulled into each gear that is more felt than heard and is a reassuring confirmation that you are in the gear. The reverse lockout is positive without requiring too much effort (I had expected I would want to switch to the included lighter spring but decided it wasn't necessary once I tried it).

I can't say how it would do in performance use since that's not my style but if you are looking for a reasonably priced quality shifter with great feel and no added noise then the Steeda shifter is a great choice. I could not be more pleased!

Product Reviews

Pros: quiet shifter with no transmission noise, more positive shifts, shorter throws but with minimal force increaseCons: thread pattern won't accept factory aluminum shift knob, stop bolts are very difficult to adjust
Overall: I had a MGW shifter that was very loud and let a lot of transmission and exhaust sounds into the cabin. This shifter was a huge improvement. It is a great balance between aftermarket and stock feel and keeps the stock sound level. A normal wrench would not fit into gap for the stop bolt to adjust them so I left them alone. I've been using this shifter for a year now, have had zero issues and still remain completely satisfied.
