SVTPP shifter ball?


Recommended Posts

I noticed a few weeks ago that my shifter ball was developing a crack . I had my dealer look at it and agree to replace it under warranty. But they seem to be having a problem getting a shifter ball with no stripes. I know there are a few parts dept. people on here, Can any of you find the part number for the no stripe shifter ball? In the pic it is hard to see but the crack runs from the upper part of the 4 and crosses over to the R.

Sounds like you have the perfect opportunity to ditch the crappy Euro-stlye shifter stick and oversized factory ball and open up your options for what style shifter to use. I bolted a Hurst stick (#7201) directly to the stock shifter, removing all the mushy rubber insulation brackets/pads that made the factory stick such a joke. Boot is from Roush and fits 2011 console perfectly. Black plastic boot retainer is from Hurst, fits snugly on Hurst stick and the Roush boot is perfectly made to accept the retainer. Whole install took me about 30 mins.

 

Now I can use any 3/8"-16 threaded knob, including my yellowed, battle-scarred vintage knob from the 1970 442 W-30 I used to own. I also like Hurst's new pistol-grip, let's me get in touch with my naughty inner Mopar self.

 

Currently the knob installed in my 2011 is not a knob at all, but rather an aluminum Hurst T-handle. I can guarantee that the T-handle will never crack.....

 

See attached pictures for some options I use. I knew a guy who had a Budweiser tap handle as his shifter knob. I thought it was hysterical, but the cops never thought it was that funny....

 

I was ready to go spend hundreds of dollars on an aftermarket shifter, but merely switching the stick/knob setup and removing all the rubber isolation from around the stick has made a HUGE difference in the feel of the stock shifter. Now throwing shifts with it is like working a bolt-action rifle.

Wow I haven't seen a black shifter ball that does not have some company stenciled on the side. But the new boss 302 has one but the R is on the left side. But thanks for the offer the dealer called today they got the stripe less ball in. I'll take it in this weekend.
