i just left mine loose.looks good. also my blox knob came with a retainer nut that i chose not to use as it adds too much height to the shifter.

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.

It looks like the front right corner of the shift bezel has a slight lift to it just like mine. Now I don't feel so bad about it.

I had a problem getting the clip out in that corner. I never even actually got it all the way out so I thought I might have done something trying to get it out. Let me know if you come up with something.

So, you have to remove the boot and bezel to swap knobs?
