how is it going to work? do you know how the 98 short shifter is? the 95 model does have the hook on the bottom ball and the side ball. its was just a ball went i took out the oem shifter.

yes because the pre 98s use a rod shifter and the post 98 use a cable shifter, so of course a 98+ short shifter will not work in a pre 98


see above post .... break out the hack saw ...

and while you have the shifter out of the car cut off the cable and pull the stud and cable through the bottom of the lever to eliminate the reverse lockout. i used a dremel with a cutoff wheel for that and a hack saw for the shifter. the whole thing took about 30 min to do including R&R

you cant use the 98 short shifter. you have to pull your shifter and then cut that. simply take the shift knob, reverse lockout lever, and shift boot off. once you have that off you need to place the car in nuetral and remove the snap ring that holds the shifter into the housing. when you get the snap ring off simply pull up on the lever and it should pop out. once its out of the car then you can cut the cable out. at that point you need to decide how short you want to cut the lever if you havent done so already. i cut mine to just below the slot cut in the lever for the cable end (see picture in the link i posted earlier). hope that helps
