But is the shift pattern on the knob straight? How do you like the finish btw? According to REDFOKUZ the Steed short shifter is about 1/4" shorter than stock. With this knob and retaining nut it would end up about stock height. Keep in mind short shifters have little to do with the height of the shifter. Mainly the length of the throw. I'll never forget the short throw shifter they had for Hondas where the top of the shifter sat level with about the middle of the steering wheel. The idea was the quicker you can get your hand to the shifter the quicker you can accelerate.
