|WS6Store now has our CUSTOM made short shifter shaft for the T56 transmission. If you know what it's like to miss third gear when it really counts, blame that rubber bushing on your stock or Hurst shaft. This shaft is solid with the shift mechanism so it is either IN OR OUT of gear -no in between! The shaft was chrome plated before it was machined it so it is very shiny but you can't see it under the shift boot. The end of the shaft is threaded to fit your stock or Hurst knob. The bottom of the shaft is milled on both sides so it fits flush with the bolts and shift mechanism. In the pictures below you can see the major difference in the height of the stock shaft vs. our short shaft.
The overall length of the stock shaft is 8-5/8". The overall length of our shortshaft is 6"...which is over a 2" difference in length. The result after installing this shaft is shorter, faster, and more positive shifts. Throw is reduced by almost a full inch or about 25%. The pictures below display the differences in the 2 shafts installed in the car without the boots in place.
Don't pay twice as much for the SAME thing! Buy this for half the price and save money. This is a high quality shaft and will give you awesome shifts for many years to come. BOTH of the WS6store owners have this in their personal f-body's and wouldn't go without it!
Not only will this shaft work with the stock and stock Hurst shifters, it will also work with many different aftermarket shifters as well, including: Hurst Billet Plus, Pro 5.0, SLP, & Kirban.
*PLEASE NOTE: When installing this short stick on cars equipped with the base non-Hurst shifter, it may touch the console trim ring in 2nd, 4th, and 6th gears. This has not been a problem with the stock Hurst equipped cars or cars with an aftermarket shifter (Pro 5.0, Hurst Billet Plus, SLP)
Installation is a breeze and takes only 5-10 minutes with minimal mechanical skills. Remove the shifter boot, take out the 2 bolts holding your stock shaft in place, bolt the new shaft in place with the included bolts, and put the shifter boot back in...and you're done. The only tools required are a 13mm wrench, and a 6mm hex socket with ratchet (or a 6mm allen wrench). You will notice a difference right away in your shifts and will wonder why you stuck with your stock shaft for so long!
You get everthing you see in the picture above: one shaft with M16 x 1.50 threads for your stock or Hurst knob, two M8 x 1.25 x 35 socket head cap screws, two Shake proof washers, two Washers, two M8 x 1.25 nylon lock nuts, and one Set of instructions with an AutoCad Drawing of how to install.
