    Anyone know if there is an adjustment and/or a simple fix to fixing the bobbing shifter effect on an automatic transmission?

    I notice my shifter bobs back and forth when on somewhat bumpy highways and streets. It also moves back lightly (but not out of gear) as I accelerate. I'm sure that this was not a condition when new, so there has to be an adjustment or fix for this right? :confused:

    Thanks in advance guys!!! :thumbsup:

    no fix, as it is a component of your drivetrain and absorbs some of the shock from the street that is transferred thru the drivetrain.
    Don't worry, be happy!

    Yes as he said, it's 100% normal and it was designed that way.
