shifter install ~10 minute upgrade, lasts a lifetime!

What's involved in the installation of the shifter?
loosen the lock nut below it, then unscrew your shift knob.
remove the 3 -5/16 screws holding the center console down. (the screws are under the rubber mats)
slide the console up & off the shifter, then unplug the accy 12v plug on the bottom.
remove the rubberized plate over the shifter by removing the 5/16 head screws.
then remove the 4 bolts that hold down the shifter to the trannsmisson. there is no linkage or anything that will jump out at you. :)
just pull out the shifter.
reassemble.
10 minutes max. :D :cool:

lowering kit instructions

when you guys get your kits, it will have these instructions, but i figured you might want to familarize yourself with them. it is a pretty easy job.
Installing your lowering kit
• Put truck on stable jack stands, remove the wheels
• To make it easy to handle you can remove the caliper & brake rotor
• Remove the shock
• Mark around the bolt heads that hold the upper A-arm to the frame, so when you reassemble them, they go back in the same position.
• Support the lower control arm with a floor jack & remove the bolts holding the UPPER A-arm to the frame
• Gently lower down the entire assembly
• You may have to lift the knuckle off of the jack to gain enough clearance to pull out the spring
• The spring will pull right out.
• Note there is a rubber cover over the top of the spring, and there is a definite stamp in the lower control arm that precisely locates the spring.
• Install the rubber cover on top of the spring
• Install the spring & locate the spring position in the lower control arm so it lines up with the stamped outline in the lower control arm
• Jack up the assembly and reinstall the 2 bolts where you marked around them
• Reinstall the shock
• Re-torque all of your bolts.
• Rear lowering blocks
• Install the rear lowering blocks by first blocking the front wheels, & then supporting the rear of the truck’s frame rails with jack stands
• Remove the u-bolts fastening the rear axle to the leaf springs.
• Jack up the axle lifting it away from the leafs. You may need to loosen the bolts the hold the leaf springs to allow for movement.
• Install the new blocks between the axle & the leafs.
• Now you may have to get an assistant or use a tie down strap to pull the axle back into position so the axle lines back up with the leaf spring axle mount pad. That is why the block has a hole & a boss to line the axle & the leafs back up.
• Torque all of the fasteners to spec.
• you may want to remove the rubber stops and take about 1/2 or so off of their height with a belt sander.
• Drive the truck & see how the alignment feels. Have an alignment shop check it over.

How much does it shorten the throw? Is the ball height the same? Does shift effort increase?
yes throw is shortened 33% and i can give you the same height as stock or go 2 inches shorter. shift effort is not harder, but it has a precise feel, where you know you just made a positive gear change. the stock shifter is a very sloppy lazy feel, and the lever is a heavy piece, and with these combined bad traits, third gear will always be a *****, as will you always run the risk of going into first, when you meant to go into 3rd!
with our billet shifter, you wont have these problems, and you WILL notice a definite improvement in your shift times, as well a lack of gear material in your tranny lube! ;)

I have been following the discussion (s) on this shifter, but I must have missed the price. Also, since you have obviously used both the standard height and the shorter height, what do you see as the benefits/drawbacks of both heights?

it really is a question of what feels comfortable for you. how you have your seat positioned etc, personally the stock shifter is a little tall for my tastes, but everyone is different. the point is that you wont have to fight to shift gears, & the movement to do so is greatly reduced.

What is the price for the shifter? Are there any warranty problems that might occur if you install something like this?
