American Muscle's "cheap" short shifter rattle

I think I have found a solution to the rattle you get with that cheaper short shifter that plagues many people-
Remove the two larger allen screws that hold down the springs. I placed a thin rubber washer inside on top of the springs, then a metal washer on top of that. Reinstalled the two allen screws and vibration noise is been gone for many thousand miles now.
Hope that helps some people who get vibration noise with shifters that have springs on either side of shifter-

Re: American Muscle's "cheap" short shifter rattle

MGW & Pro5.0 are the two I'm considering. With smooth shifting right now, it's a priority thing. I also have more parts coming that need to be installed. Congrats on the MGW shifter. I have their adjustable shifter handle and that is an amazing product too.
