Just wondering if anyone else has had this problem.
About 10 months ago I installed a URD short throw shifter kit and loved the result and have frequently commented on how much better the shifting feels.
However I have just broken the ball end off the stock shift lever right where it inserts into the URD kit. I have since replaced the stock stick bit now I'm paranoid that I'm going to have it fail again in the future and it may not be as convenient as in a friends driveway like this time.
Has anyone else seen this failure before? Has anyone seen it fail in stock form without the kit? The guy at URD said that this is the third one he's heard of in nine years but I'd like to know if that sounds legit. What do you think?
I'm thinking about changing it out to the TRD quick shift for peace of mind. Except the throw is only reduced 30% on the TRD kit vs 44% with URD. Has anyone compared the two that can comment on whether this feels much different?
