bars welded under the car?

Today my shifted got stuck in drive so I had to get under the car and pull the ?shifter? Into park and while I was under there I saw some long bars welded to the car and they had a sticker on them that's said something performance. What are these? Also anyone have any idea what would make my shifted get stuck like that? It's a bbk slap shifter.

Subframe connectors. Google image search and see if that's what you got.

Anyone know why the shifter would stick like that? It wouldn't budge in the car but shifted easily when I had to do it under the car.

Maybe the linkage got hung up?

Cable shifter?


A burr on the cable or a kink might cause that, also if the cable housing ends are not fastened securely it causes shifting problems.

I believe it is. So I went to get in my car this morning and it won't go into drive, it shifts from park to reverse to neutral and back fine but will not go into drive and if I get under the car and shift it into drive it won't go back into neutral. Im getting so frustrated. Help please!

Sounds like the shifter in the console is on it's way out.

It may just be out of adjustment too.
Research how to adjust it, then do so and see if that helps.
