The Steeda Focus SVT Short Throw Shifter for 2002-2004 Focus SVT is more than just a short handle. We re-engineered the entire shift mechanism with an improved pivot ratio so you can enjoy faster shifts without having to bend down to reach the shift knob. The throws are shorter and the shift knob is located in a more comfortable position than the factory shifter, without being too short like other "short throw" shifters that are really nothing more than a chopped down stick.

The Tri-Ax is manufactured with heavy-duty parts to withstand abuse. Installation can be done by the do-it-yourselfer with basic hand tools. The Tri-Ax is available for all Zetec and SVT Focus with a manual transmission.

Bought it on sale with low expectations, happy with it only after adding a very heavy shift knob and lever extender. As the reduced throw moves the fulcrum moves closer to the knob, It reduces throw, but also reduces leverage. Worth the cost though, very well made.

Slick little unit
I haven't fitted it yet but it's well machined and I am glad I have it to fit when I do some other reconditioning.Five stars because it meets my expectations.Going into a high mileage German built St170 right hand drive, UK owners say it will install perfectly.

Great shifter
Very nice and well made shifter. It cleans up the shift length and it's easy to make quicker shifts without missing a gear. 5th and 6th are still very deliberate actions like the stock shifter, but much less distance. I will say as short throws go, this one is about right for effort required. The effort is increased slightly from factory, but the precision is also increased. Overall very nice unit, and I'm glad it's in my car. I would put this one in any SVT focus I owned. Install wasn't bad at all. Everything went together easier than taking everything apart, the directions were solid.

Huge difference!
Huge difference! When I first got it, I didn't really understand how it was going to make a difference because it looked a little too similar to the O.E. one. After installing the short throw shifter with the instructions provided, the throws were a lot shorter and stiffer. Great purchase and I am extremely satisfied.

Well Engineered!
The shifter went in very easily. The parts are well engineered and the instructions were clear and concise. It made installation a breeze! The Steeda shifter is a huge improvement over the stock shifter. Less play, crisp throws, and an ideal knob height allow for far easier downshifts, especially into those annoying 1st-gear hairpins.

One of the best beginner's mods out there for the SVT! Although I've never had a short throw shifter before, I can certainly feel the difference over stock. Throw is definitely shorter and tighter but also very smooth. Good quality built product. Adding this shifter makes driving more fun, too! I live in Valdosta, GA so I was able to swing by and pick this up from Steeda direct and their customer service was great as well! Top notch company with top notch mods! LOVE driving my SVT all over again!! Highly recommend this shifter for other SVT owners!

I've had several of the competitors Short throw shifters on my Ford Focus'. When I got my SVT, I noticed quite a bit of buzz on the ford focus forums about the Steeda STS and I thought I would give it a try. I quickly realized that all of the other competitors shifters were just shortened shifters, and not truly short throw shifters. The Steeda SVT STS brought the height of the shifter down to a level that looks great. It's the height ford should have made it. I don't have to reach down to grab it, It doesn't pinch the shift boot, it's just the right height. What really caught me off guard that I love is the throw is so much shorter without any extra effort. The shift from 1st to 2nd feels like a stock shifter going from 1st to neutral. The quality is outstanding which is something I've come to expect from steeda and I will not be running ANY other brand STS in any of my future vehicles. I HIGHLY recommend this STS to ALL SVT Focus owners.
