Short shifter is killer on my SVT. Removed counterweight (only do if you want a slightly notchy shift, is quicker feeling though.)

i found few short shifters on ebay, but most of them say that it doesnt fit 1.6L focus. ;(

Find out which transmission you have and you can probably figure out which short throw shifter you can get. The only components you are replacing is what is right there in the shifter casement.

It literally takes an hour.
You have to unbolt your center console and you will see your shifter set up. You then go to work. Really easy, just follow directions.

All STS are applicable to different year set ups. I know here that one that was made for a Focus that came out before April of 2002 will not work in a Focus made after that date. Just a different shifter set up.
