|ChrisRyan||Im using the OEM shift knob and I prefer the relative heft the kit provides. Lithium grease and loctite blue will be wanted too. A bunch of grease and a couple dabs of loctite. To the OP get the whole kit and you will wonder how you did without it. I love mine. Have a buddy to help and proper amounts of lighting and you will be set.|

My only complaint... Wish it was still about an inch shorter on height!
I'm running without a weighted shift knob, actually my knob is slightly lighter than the factory knob... I don't mind it one bit.
A couple Pro tips: 1. There is no such thing as too much lube when reinstalling everything especially on the spherical aluminum end! 2. Get the whole kit, not just the bracket!

I have the Steeda short-throw in my Focus, and love it. You need to get the combo (bracket + tri-ax) for the best result.
Yes, throws are reduced, yes the shift action is slightly notchier, but I prefer it that way. There's no question as to whether it's in gear or not.

3. It is more notchy no matter what you do, but significantly less-so if you get a weighted knob. Feel is still great IMO.
5. You won't be getting any work from Ford if something goes wrong with the shifter. Otherwise, it affects nothing.
