Steeda has re-invented the Short Throw Shifter for the Fox Body and SN95 Mustang! This shifter is CNC machined from billet 6061 T-6 aluminum and has a heavy duty construction and design. It has a nickel plated pivot shaft so it will not rust or stain. Also, the hardware is made from grade 8 and stainless steel. This shifter comes with an Exclusive BootGuard which will help prevent damage to the factory inner boot. This shifter is the smoothest, most comfortable, quickest shifting, shortest throw shifter on the market.

The short throw shifter incorporates adjustable positive stops which prevent over extending the shift lever, preventing costly transmission damage. (The T-5 does not have internal stops, so if shifting too hard, the shift forks can bend)

Not all Mustang shifters are created equal. Learn more about what makes Steeda stand out from the crowd:

Speed shift
Great product and a great price. I installed myself using the directions that came with the kit and feeler gauges. my wife is so happy now because shifting is so quick and easy with out losing power. Thanks

Great shifter I really like the way it feels and shifts much better than factory. Easy install I had bought the gasket for it and still used silicone on it and I guess got it too tight the gasket came out the side so you really don't need it. No problems works great.

Feel the difference
I read enough reviews to replace the shifter on my 94 v6 T5 manual. I was ordering the sub frame and basic suspension package so I added the shifter. It's better. It feels solid and the throws are shorter, I'm still getting used to it but overall I'd recommend it. I'm going flush tranny with Royal purple tran oil I read that might help it shift smoother.

Topless95 Shifter
Sweet upgrade...took 30 min. Anyone who hasn't done this on their 20+ year old Pony doesn't know what they are missing! Shifts are shorter, quicker, and more percise.....finding 3rd is effortless and 5th is not the reach it was. It might not be the best bang for buck drivability upgrade....but its close!

Hands down the best one on the market
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.

Never let me down
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!

Long term
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.

Long Term Review
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!

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

Love this Shifter
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.

Highly recommend
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!

Amazing Shifter
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!!

Awesome shifter
Has this shifter model in a 87 LX and a 96 Cobra. Had a Pro-5.0 shifter in the 96 Cobra before I switched back to the Tri-Ax and there is just no comparison. The Tri-Ax rocks! The Tri-Ax has a much more comfortable position for reach, shifted much smoother in all gears, and was quiet as well. You can't go wrong with this shifter! I now have a 2011 GT which I have also just put a Steeda shifter into. Can't say enough good things about it!
