    Bumping in hopes Ares sees this and doesn't forget to measure things.

    I am soooo on board with this. I have felt better shift throws in a grain truck than in this car, lol so it has always been somewhat of a priority. I have called and talked to manufacturers. Always get the same response as the struts... no plans for a product. I did find that it seems to share a part number with a Chrysler product shifter, but I can't find which one. I had hoped if I could find that out, someone may have already done the hard part for us. Anywho... I will do whatever I can to help.

    I'm glad to hear there is interest in this. As soon as I get measurements I can do the modifications and get the first one shipped out.

    Still looking for help with those measurements. I'm open to anyone snapping me a few pics and measuring things up.

    Sorry dude, I have been busy all week. Usually have time to at least browse the forum once a day.

    With that said, I'm looking forward to the long weekend. I will definitely make time this weekend to get this done.

    Hey Daox,

    Greetings from Australia.

    I've just ordered a G5 shortshifter ($30AUD) and will pull mine apart on Wednesday to get the measurements.

    I've had a good look at it previously and it looks very close to a g5- I think the circlip is to replace the pushnut that gets destroyed during disassembly.

    I'll take pictures as well for reference.

    My Mirage is a base model, bought cheap new with hail damage and basically is my work hack. That said, I can't help but tinker.

    I'll be in touch!

    Matt
