I put mine in last April . Pretty easy install,except for those damn V6 springs ! If i were to do it again,I would slice the inner boot enough to unbolt the springs. Then they just fall out.I am lucky,I used a lift @ work. I would hate to do it on my back. I just need to order the correct V6 shift pattern knob.

Just the shifter -centering springs . They hold the shifter in the car after you disconect it from the trans. You should slice the inner boot enough to get a 1/4" drive socket in there to unbolt the springs.The Hurst instructions are extremely vague on this portion of the install.

Does anyone know where I can get my hands on a couple of those counter-sunk mounting screws? I bought the shifter used, and the jacka** decided not to send me the screws with it....... I'll call Hurst if it's my only option--I just really wanted to install my shifter this weekend.

Tag thanks for the write up, I installed mine today it was a piece of cake. Worst part was the mounting screw on the passenger side.

Thats a pretty good price compared to everywhere else. Did you use the factory leather boot and knob?
Is this the same product that sells for $300-400 on other sites?

Correct. I used my original boot but, instead of using my shift knob, I ordered a 2012 Hurst OEM shift knob from Becky at Rodgers Chevrolet.

Anyone not using the hurst stock shaft? Great work used this write up to install my shifter. Hardest was getting the boot back on over the linkage.

BEST extra mod you can do for this shifter is the Brass Bushings.. those plastic ones suck bad... the first pair i had were shit.. had to order new ones... then those wore out... get the brass ones.

Got my shifter today....wooohoooo.

The box comes with a noise dampening kit and it says to install ONLY if there is an audible noise or vibration. Then it says to ONLY install the dampening rubber and if that doesnt work then install the rubber bushing.

Now common sense and preventative maintenance tells me to install everything now....anyone see a problem with this?

Dont know if I can wait for the brass bushings.....i want it in right away!!

Thanks.

Personally, I would wait for the bushings. I have the bushings but, now I have to remove the shifter to install them. That rubber boot is a PAIN!!!
