Where are you shopping for a shift knob if you don't mind me asking :D.
I have those universal ones from autozone and I hate it with a passion. I have a steeda knob but winter is coming and they get super cold!

What kind of shift knob do you have? I was thinking about grabbing one of those cheap $15 knobs from Autozone--it matches my interior, and--most importantly (by far)--it isn't rubber. I've got a Steeda shift knob right now, but the rubber around the middle is starting to deteriorate (sweat and muggy weather have accelerated the process), so I wanted to get something that at least feels like leather.

This is what I was looking at:

I have this one http://www.autozone.com/autozone/acc...er=930321_0_0_
I hate it, It looks bigger inside the package but when its installed its tiny. I didn't even know how to grab it lol. Also they seem to get lose after a few weeks so they start slipping off and spinning around. My cousin also has a universal on for his Spec V and its the same deal. Was tight now lose

Twmperformance makes awesome weighted shift knobs. Bit expensive but well worth it. Have been running one for years. The flossy knobs with the griptape texture looked interesting, but I haven't been sold on the quality yet. An awesome feeling shift knob is well worth it, might not get that from an autozone universal knob.

I have a shift knob off of one of the newer Mustangs with the 6-speed in it. It threaded on just fine and the shift pattern is correct. Do a Google search for Ford or Mustang take-off parts. I paid $20-$25 with shipping...

shift knob loose?

Hey guys. i have an autozone knob as well (black and it came with different shift patterns and a red, yellow and blue accent rings). the stupid set screws came loose after only a week! If you have the same problem, do what i did. take your knob off and throw the set screws away. fill the knob with A/B apoxy and let it dry completely. then drill out the knob and tap out the base with the 12 x 1.25 tap and screw ur knob on! Mine has been on the car and solid for over a year now. Later.

I just ordered one as well. OEM Brand new never used for $20, Maybe $30 if I have to pay for shipping the site really doesn't tell you until the ordered has been processed.
