I have a few questions about the tri ax install if someone would be so kind:

- Will my stock shift knob line up correctly on the new handle and if it doesnt how can i make it so that the shift pattern is lined up correctly as it should be?

- Do i need to purchase anything else other than what came with the shifter i.e. gasket sealant, etc or does it have everything in the kit that i need?

- Any tricks for cutting down the noise that alot of people are complaining about after they switch to the tri ax?

Thanks!

1. Your stock knob will fit and mine screwed down to the right position. If yours doesn't, you will need to get a thin nut to screw down first, set your knob and back the nut off(up) to your knob and tighten both against each other.
2. No you will not need any other stuff, except for the nut in #1 above if your knob doesn't line up.
3. Can't answer as I have not had the noise problem other have.

Good Luck!

Contrary to what schmedlap posted above, you will need a gasket sealant. I used RTV blue gasket sealant on mine.

I reused the boot cover, cut an "X" across the lever hole and reinstalled it. I did that to reduce the noise and also I used the MGW lever, which is beefier than the Steeda lever, and I also placed it in the lower position. Without the hole being enlarged, the MGW lever kept pinching the rubber boot between the lever and the mount rod.
