    Make sure you apply some grease. the one from the stock shifter ball works fine. Then you would need to familiarize yourself with a tool called a rubber malet. It will fix your problem.

    oh, and BTW, I installed my short shifter in about 5 minutes. easy peezy

    an adjustable SS seems rather useless, cause how often are you really gonna go in there and adjust it?
