    David this is the rubber connection between the shift rod and the nose of the gearbox not the actual gear shift lever, would replace this I'm guessing and not a short shift fitting, cheers Greg

    I have used the CB Rhino ones and love them

    I was sick and tied of them collapsing after 12 months

    This one

    https://www.cbperformance.com/product-p/6110.htm

    They transmit a bit Iv vibration (supposedly) but seeing as I ran Dells and had a semi solid gear box mount all I notice was a super crisp gear change.

    To be honest, with my CSP gear stick, I am yet to drive any car that had a better shift

    Thanks Barry, the last one I bought for Katherines Beetle I actually tossed before I fit it as it was such poor quality, cheers

    Interested to see how you find it works.
    One trick that improves the original types is to replace the ' pin' with a 10mm bolt that has a long shank.
    Requires minor clearancing with a 10mm drill first.
    Noticeable improvement.

    Have not replaced the stock unit in 30 years.

    If you're buying a stock version - get the one with the red urethane sides. The black plastic ones are cheap and nasty and left me stranded on the side of the great ocean road. That was until I hooked up a zip tie and I was able to get it into gear! :)
    Also either retain the original centre pin part as the replacement ones seem to be rubbish or do as CBUS said and use a bolt with a nylock nut on the end.
