Shifter Bracket Install

Got to my friend's garage bright and early this morning. Put her up on the lift and got to work. On a lift, it's very, very simple. Undo the bolts, yank the shifter extension down to knock the retaining clip loose, pull off bracket, then slowly reassembly on the shifter. Follow the instructions and you'll be fine. I was done in under 30mins from the time we pulled the car in until I left.

I cannot stress this enough: If you own a MT82, get a bracket. I absolutely love the thing, it makes it shift like a whole different car. It makes the shifter have a bit more mechanical feel at times popping into gear, but it's smoother and way more precise. It doesn't feel like a squishy banana at times. I haven't tried any full throttle runs yet, but I'm sure it won't disappoint.

On a side note, glad I got it on a lift. I think my pinion seal is leaking. I'm going to have to get an appointment at the dealership and get it looked at. Something is leaking and it's only wet from the front of the diff to the back, underneath.

This one relies on a urethane bushing. It still has a bit of slop/give to let the shifter move fore and aft during acceleration and stopping.

The two post is 100% solid. It bolts to the car, the other half bolts to the shifter box and has 2 solid sliding pins holding the halves together. This lets it get the fore/aft movement without any additional up/down/side movement the urethane bushing would allow.

Is it worth it? I decided it wasn't. I'm sure it makes a bit of difference, but not the $40 extra that I would have spent. Plus, I bet NVH goes up a lot more with the 2 post. The bushing in the one piece lets some of that dissipate.

It's 40$ now. I ordered the single piece bracket last night but was torn between that one and the two post. I figured the two post might b a little overkill for a dd and I was also worried about more noise from it seeing how there's no bushing to help dampen the NVH.

Yea I haven't installed it yet but I'm hoping it's only a little louder
