Steeda's S550 Mustang GT MT-82 Tri-Ax Race Short Throw Shifter is a full factory shifter assembly replacement for your 2015-2017 Mustang GT. Our race short throw shifter eliminates all slop and deflection of the factory shifter, and still retains the factory shift knob, pull-up style reverse lockout and backup camera functionality.

With the replacement of your factory shifter assembly with our short throw shifter, you will notice a 30% reduction in throw between gears. Our shifter assembly will also lower the shift knob by 1", putting it in a better 'power' shifting position. Our Steeda S550 Mustang MT-82 Tri-Ax Race Short Throw Shifter is quieter than the stock shifter during daily driving, although during race applications you may notice a slight NVH increase.

One of the great benefits to this shifter assembly is that it's completely top-loaded. Our short throw shifter for your 2015-2017 Mustang GT comes with 2 different spring set options for a fully adjustable shifting experience. The kit comes complete with 2 medium-resistance springs and 2 high-resistance springs. The Steeda Tri-Ax has adjustable return springs to fit every drivers' preference on shifter feel. Using an offset spring tension ensures that you hit your 2nd-3rd gear change every time. Since our S550 MT-82 short shifter is top-loaded, once the base plate is mounted, you can change all of your springs, levers and other options all from inside the car without taking out the full shifter assembly!

Our Tri-Ax shifter features rigid mounting in the front and Steeda poly bushing in the rear, virtually eliminating slop and shifter deflection. With less deflection you will feel a much more direct gear change. The assembly is transmission and chassis-mounted so you don't get the 'walking' affect of a fully transmission-mounted assembly, all while still gaining a more rigid shifter feel. Factory shift shaft bushings are replaced with wider, high-quality machine-finished, low-friction bushings. Tolerances are controlled up to a half thousandth of an inch to ensure OE-quality fitment, alignment and shaft actuation. These features alone make our Steeda Tri-Ax one of the most positive feeling shifters on the market today. To top it all off, our Steeda Mustang GT shifter assembly includes Dynamat sound-deadening material to close out your transmission tunnel and ensures your S550 stays as quiet as the stock assembly.

Steeda's S550 Mustang MT-82 Tri-Ax Race Short Throw Shifter is manufactured from high-quality aircraft-grade aluminum making it 20% lighter than the competitions' shifter assemblies. The shift lever itself on our Tri-Ax is made from heat-treated and nickel-plated 4140 steel, making it the strongest part out on the market. All hardware is stainless steel for the highest corrosion-resistance possible. Included in our kit is hardware to tighten up the factory shift knob perfectly into a locking position. These parts have been put to the test on the street and the track and are proven not to bind under extreme conditions or temperatures.

Note: If you already have Steeda's shifter base bushing bracket, just let us know and we will be able to offer our Tri-Ax Race Short Throw Shifter at a slightly reduced price without the shifter base bushing bracket (it is required in order to use this shifter).

when I want to push the car I know I can trust the shifter
I love my Tri-Ax. The transmission with aftermarket fluid and this shifter feels amazing. Definitely a must buy for anyone with a manual. Everything is so crisp and precise. I went with the stiffest springs and it's still great for a DD. Engagement is easier and when I want to push the car I know I can trust the shifter.

You will be smiling for years
Traded my '13 Brembo GT vert with an MGW shifter in on a '16 GT vert with the performance package. I was sad to discover that not only did Ford persist in "designing" the cheap junk MT82 remote shifter linkage into the S550; but to add insult to injury, they ruined the feel of the clutch with a "helper" spring for the pusillanimous that makes the clutch action so soft and vague that you can't predict where it's going to engage from one shift to the next. Far worse than my '13. Ruined the car. Wasn't too disappointed, though. I knew from my research what the fix was, and just booked the first appointment Steeda had available. Had them install the "race" tri-ax shifter, the $10'spring that undoes the damage Ford did to the clutch, and the billet reverse lockout collar that replaces the cheesy "chromed" plastic that Ford cheaped out on. Night and day. I do not work for Steeda, nor an I a groupie. First time I ever bought anything from them, in fact. But believe me -- these parts do correct what makes the GT just about undrivable and leaches the fun and the feeling of quality out of an otherwise excellently executed machine. I spent 4 years with an MGW and this one is at least as good. No slop going through the gears. None. This is now the Mustang that was intended before the bean counters started cutting corners in China. Steeda addresses that fundamental problem, and the shift linkage isn't the only thing they have parts to correct. If you want the Mustang to do what Ford says it will do, free of compromises, call Steeda and spend a small fraction of what you paid for the car to make it right. You will be smiling for years.

Initial impression... WOW!
Initial impression... WOW! Seriously this is how the factory shifter should be. Shifts are SO precise and crisp, there is absolutely no missing gears! It's like the shifter knows where you want it to go. The throw is amazingly shorter, thus rowing through the gears is night and day faster. It's an absolute must have mod, and I have to thank another forum member Oko3612 for bringing this shifter to my attention. Awesome shifter Steeda!

It really is worth the money
I got to really get a feel for it the 200 or so miles back home and the following day. It really is worth the money. I always felt like I was going to break the stock shifter. But with the tri ax its so solid and really feels like what I'm used to in my other cars. You know when its in gear. The springs help keep me from missing a gear when down shifting quickly, which was a problem for me on the stock shifter. Besides being an inch shorter than stock shifter, it still looks like its oem.

The height of it is perfect and going into 5th feels really good
My only complaint is I wish I would of installed this earlier, I love this shifter. The shifts are tight and smooth, its not sloppy like the stock shifter. The height of it is Perfect and going into 5th feels really good, I don't have to reach across country for 5th gear anymore. I'm very happy with this shifter. :)
