the lever is all you need and it's not a reduced height, it's actually longer and straighter than stock, that's what makes the throw shorter, it took me about an hour, because i couldn't jack my car up enough to get under there comfortably, plus i didn't wait long enough for the car to cool down so i was really tentative putting my face next to the cat, it was scary lol, but yeah, the only problem i had and i will make this clear to you guys here so you don't make the same dumb mistake,
once you're ready to pull out the shift lever every is removed and detached, you must turn the little retainer thing holding the ball joint, clock-wise from above and counter clock-wise from below and it can be done with a couple of flat heads like they show in those diy's
but yeah it's pretty simple and if you guys need any help or have any questions i'll be glad to help
i can also give you guys the part number so you know what to get, just go to your local dealer and you can order it for 60 bucks, that's what the list price was at my dealership w/o discount, and yes all you need is the lever
good luck if you guys want to try it
