need some help deciding on short throw shifter

Well since i broke my shifter base on my 2002 zx3 focus. I have decided i am going to replace it with another base and go ahead a get a short shift kit while im at it. i know i want a steeda one but heres the problem. how do i know which one to go with. the Steeda Steeda Tri-Ax/F Short Throw Shifter - '00-'02 1/2 or the Steeda Tri-Ax/F Short Throw Shifter - '02 1/2-2005. call me retarted but i think its the first one from steeda correct.

1.) The first one
2.) The second


please let me know thanks

sorry to steal killer ZETEC's thunder, but you have the first (00-02 1/2) style.

ohh and dont bother going with the extra money for the new knob. i hated it. i just use the stocker. the stocker actually sits lower, and the steeda one after awhile starts rubbing that black stuff you hands. especially if u r shifting alot

I prefer the Steeda/FordRacing shifter... and you can get them under $90 if you look for them.
