The 2 post shifter bracket firms up the shifter and makes your shifts way more precise as if you had an aftermarket shifter.

It's not a Barton or a 2-post. I talked to the guy and I'm not even sure its not a factory one. I would go with the Barton 2 post.

Although the hurst is pretty cool, I'd firm up your shifter them buy a hurst ball.

I have the Barton bracket. It is the older version and though the newer version is easier to install the difference between them functionally is really very minor. I also had the SVE short throw too. It is in my tool box. It did firm up the shifts a bit and had a shorter throw and also raised the handle up and back which was nice but I noticed reverse was a pain in the *** and made noise. I opted to go back to the stock shifter with just the Barton bracket. The bracket will make a huge difference alone. Then you would probably have enough for springs too.. Try the bracket first. Quite a few people have just done the bracket and feel it is plenty good.

The Steeda and UPR brackets are of really good quality as well fyi so dont be scared to get those. They all work well and get very positive reviews.

If you get the combo or just the bracket it's a big plus. I have the old Barton bracket and it's has been great! Never miss a gear no more!

Thats whats bringing this whole thing on. I raced my mom in her srt8 charger i went for 2nd and missed it and i havent heard the end of it from her yet. But i think im going to go with the steeda shifter from what ive heard its pretty good. Any i want to get a nice shifter ball for it too. I have one of those expensive digital ford balls on it right now and i hate it.

Oh... Geez I can see where that would be a thorn in your side lol. Try the bracket first. It makes it 1000 times better.
