Default shifter acting up!!

I finally THOUGH that i got my car to a stable place where it would have no problems, but guess what...................I was wrong. my car shifts nicly between gears and goes into gear good but when it is in gear on the shifter you can move it about 1 to 2 inches each way while in gear and not pop it out. does that mean that i just need to replace my stock shifter?

Sounds like your shifter bushings are going or are shot.

Check this out for stock replacement:

i dont think the tri-ax does but i think the pro 5.0 i think uses the stock shifter handle, but you can just buy a new shifter handle if you want to use the stock shifter
