Truss Style Shift Lever Kit


Known to fail, BAKER took the all-too-common-looking stock shifter and improved it in every way with a new design. 

The most common issue with the stock transmission shift lever is stripped out splines or a broken cross section. BAKER improved the design of the splines, to prevent stripping, and a thicker cross section offers a stronger overall design.

Truss Style Shift Lever Kit

This is the ONLY alternative to the crappy stock unit - which the splines will strip out and leave you stranded in the middle of Bumfuck. I read the reviews by the numbnuts, whose mechanical skills are equivalent to "saw it on Youtube" saying the splines wouldn't fit. Well if you know what you're doing, it fits PERFECTLY - like everything else Baker makes! I highly recommend all Baker products to all my clients - and for 1 simple reason - you get what you pay for: 100% American Made Quality!

no more stripping

So far this new part has cost me $1500.00. When we went to install it we had to take the primary inner and outer off to install and when we did we found a few major problems. So I want to Thank you because if I had installed it like a factory one I would not have found the major problem. Now that all is right my shifter works so much better. No clunk, everything is tight. I am so GLAD bought this part. Thank you for the quality. Have a Great holiday season.

Great replacement

I replaced .y drum with the N1 and upgraded the pawl . I replaced the arm at the same time. The old arm was worn and sloppy,it is great to have solid shifting again.
