Member here that sells an aftermarket replacement - here's a "cutnpaste" of his info:

Quote:
I've got a bolt in replacement that is 50% stronger. The kit includes a left hand drill bit, an Easy Out, and the new linkage. I sell the linkage only for $40.00 and the entire kit for $52.00 delivered to your front door via Priority Mail. A personal check is fine.

Uh, not to be a total opportunist - but if you do replace yours, can I get the old rentention wire clips from your broken one? I'm missing one on my LT.

Thumbs up Shift Linkage

Thanks for the info, Does this guy have a web site or how about a phone number where he can be reached? as far as the retention clips i will just keep them in case i need one in the future it seems as these shift linkages have a high failure rate

Not that I know of.

Here's the link to his membership info here - there's an email link available there:

(Sorry for not including his username in the first place! - philjohn)

And am I right in thinking there may be another kit out there someplace too???
