    Does anyone know where i can get a steel short shift?
    I have broke 3 aluminum short shifters and im so sick of it.
    Its getting expensive and I can only find aluminum ones
    Does anyone know where I can get a steel short shift with a warranty or somthing or a steel one that wont break! It keeps buming me out

    on a side note, what is the difference of a dual bend, a single bend or no bend? does it just affect how tall the shifter is? sorry to hijack the thread.

    ive had the el cheapo shifter in 3 cars and never broke it. I bought a new one recently but the old one was still in good standing.

    its just the knob placement/angle its at. GSRs(i think, a couple ive seen have it) have a dual bend shifter in them stock.

    yeah, its the placement of the nob, plus depending if you have long ol money arms you can get a no bend, but if your short armed, go with a dual bend, it does'nt really help with shift throw. good luck on that.


    most civics have a single bend

    the B&M does not have any bends.

    and just a side note to all you fucking apes busting shifters every other oil change,
    relax!!! no need to slam the shifter into gear like you are trying to prison fuck it
    perhaps try jerking off more... might release some of that built up tension... then again if you over do it, it might build up the strength of your shifting arm

    hmmm......

    titanium shifters???

    Maybe it's time to go a little easier on it. Like E said, it really doesn't need to be SLAMMED into gear. I can shift fast without beating the hell out of the shifter, probably the reason I haven't broken a shifter.

    a guy i knew had a 99 civic si, and he had a short shifter, don't recall the brand. but wow, the knob was literally below the plastic bezel line it was sitting so low, and i've never seen a shorter shift...ever. seriously the throw was like .25"
