2010_SES I haven't had any problems with that. I snugged mine up quite good and left the little rubber piece on the inside of the bracket that was already there.

AzPete Has anyone had issues with the clamp on the shifter rotating on the shaft due to not being locked over the tab at the lower position?

No issues here but I would hate to have it spin while the wife is out somewhere.....

2010_SES Ok fellas, I measured the plastic tube at your request. I must like you guys to do this in the dark at 1100pm after a really long day. I measured mine at just shorter than 2 1/2". Again, this will be dependent on how high-up you raise the cable.

However, it does seem like there is a bit of leeway for this though. I had a lot more threads I could have tightened the knob on. I just barely snugged up the knob because the first time I ended up screwing the knob too far and ended up pushing the cable back down the stick making the throws longer albeit not by much.

Again, I hope this helps you guys. Any questions just ask.

Jbone1210 Ya I agree with you. Mine is a 07 so it's a bit different. But it def gives me some ideas

2010_SES Will try and get the measurement this afternoon. Been really busy today and about to to take my wife to the airport.

Thanks all for the comments. I really am a visual guy myself so any pics I can get my hands on help me.

Jbone1210 ya im having a lil trouble to get it fitting right so i just moved it up a lil bit. but these pics and what you did actually helps out a lot on what i can do to move it up more to get it that much shorter. thanks for the tips and pics

AzPete Thanks. Having that measurement would give a good base line along with the pics you posted.

2010_SES The length of the tube would be dependent on how far up you moved the cable mount. If I could free up some time tomorrow I will try and pull it off and get a measurement for you.

AzPete Good job. By chance, can you measure the black plastic tube to post how long the tube is after cutting? This would pin point the amount to cut off.
