Mike;Hi Folks: Looking at installing the DDM Short Shifter in our 07 Redline. Anyone have experience with product? Thanks for any feedback you can provide regarding installation and use.
I could see that, I guess I was very fortunate.It is easy to install only if the allen screws come out easily - sometimes they seem welded in there. Be sure not to use a cheap allen key or you may twist it if you need to really reef on it. Agree that it is a very useful mod.
Install was about 1 hour and it makes a big difference. it’s a little stiff for a week or two but then it breaks in and works great. Worth the money.:cheers:
I could not agree more. It’s a bit more effort and a tight squeeze with all the trim in. If you’re doing a stereo install, perfect time as it’s a breeze with the trim removed.This is probably the single best modification I've made for my car, I'd highly recommend it.
But, I will advise, in the instructions, they say to cut the inner boot to get access. I did this, and I'd recommend that you do not. That boot definitely keeps input shaft whine out of the interior of your car, and replacing it with a fully intact example is something that's still on my to-do list. Take the extra time to disassemble the rest of the console, drill out the rivets, and then reinstall it correctly.
Where did you get that retainer ring!?!?Mike;
I have had my DDM Short Shifter for nearly 3 years now. IMO it was probably one of the best mods I made. It was very easy to install, everything was done inside the car. IMO the shifting is much closer and more precise but then again that's just a personal opinion. Personally I really don't think you could go wrong with this mod. With my installation, I used the new shifter, knob and boot.
I guess I was fairly fortunate as I bought everything from a fellow up here in Saskatchewan because he was selling his Solstice. I bought the shifter, boot and shift knob all as one item.Where did you get that retainer ring!?!? ive been looking for something like that for a year. seems impossible to find one that fits.
