    Your welcome. You can also put white litium grease in the area were it slides on the shifter assembly and it will help with the noise. I'm sticking with the T handle for now, lots of people like it more.

    Great write-up!

    I have to do this...the stock setup has always bugged me, I think it looks unfinished w/out a boot.

    Yours looks perfect.

    Thanks. I appreciate your opinion. If the grand am shifter was smaller I would have kept it. I have it sitting in the shelf now lol

    Did the same mod on Z28, I used a shifter from a a 97+ Grand Prix, it's a little bigger but looks better IMO, I tried the same one you did from a Grand Am and a few others but in the end I was happy with the Grand Prix one. The boot looks way better than the stock stick showing. Good write up.
