Can we update this list to include the 5 speed models need to keep the shift cable attachment ball joint things?

I did not keep mine because it did not tell me to, so now I'm buying 60$ replacement pieces from an aftermarket manufacturer because I can't find the OEM part number to buy them from Chevy. The OEM ones are apparently very brittle so they're often replaced anyway, but the aftermarket replacements don't fit the DF threaded bar so you'll have to come up with a welded solution and not everyone has a welder, so this is an important part to keep if you don't like coming up with a custom solution.

If you have a 5 speed, keep the little plastic pieces that attach the shifter ball ends to the shift cables. DF's current shifter setup requires you to reuse them.

  • Shifter
    • automatics need to keep the single shifter cable
    • manual cables are replaced with custom length cables in the kit
    • Plastic snaps to attach shift ball joint to cables <-- Add this
