    I can't decide

    I'm hoping to finish my clutch swap tomorrow. I can't decide which one of the 3 shift knobs I should finish it off with. I'm OCD over this for some reason! Lol.

    Unless you have white gauges, I would go for number one or three.

    1 or 3. I had a leather shift knob in my last Camaro and I liked it.

    I have #1 and took it back off. Darn thing is like trying to hold a softball in your hand so it just wasn't that comfortable to me. Really needs to be smaller.

    So I went back to #3 and left it. Even though I'm not completely happy with it, because it really needs a locking nut underneath. Every time I really want to go after some gears it turns and moves on me, and screws me up. But it's my wifes car and she likes #3 better, so it stays.

    Go with what is comfortable to you.

    I had #3. Took it off because is was hitting the console. Not sure which shifter is in my car. Previous owner didn't know.

    I run the stock GM Hurst shifter with a short stick installed, and the #3 factory knob, no clearance issues.

    However I did heat and bend the stick to put the shifter in a more comfortable position, (not because of clearance issues) But if you want the factory knob, this might be an option for you.

    I have #1 and agree with firebirdjones, way too big. Didn't have it long before i traded it for a smaller one. I like the leather one as well

    Looks like the stock leather one takes the win. Thanks for helping out an indecisive member! Lol

    I know...you said "bound" which is wrong. It's "Hell Bent for Leather".
