Installed this 2 weeks ago () and it is awesome, fit beautifully. My 1-2 shift was 3 1/2 inches at the shift nob and now it's right around 1 1/2 inches. There is a decent quality bearing on the linkage end and it comes with bushings (like the B&M's) it is DOT cert'd and has a 120 day warranty. There is a lot of crap out there for $12 and you can drop $200 on a name. I think this one is a nice balance, like I said in the thread title awesome bang for the buck.
