Default Shifter or Springs?

My car is not yet lowered, so my question is: Should I purchase lowering springs first or a shifter? Also, I will be riding on stock shocks for a couple of months. If you think shifter, should I go with the pro 5.0 or the b&m?

Go with the shifter dude, it's cheap, easy, and a stand alone mod. Wait till you have shocks to get the springs.

1st of all, research on how much Eibach springs are teh lose. Use the search button and type in 'eibach sag'

Go w/ a shifter. I went w/ Pro 5.0 and damn it was worth every cent, no exaggeration.

All right, well I've made up my mind to go with shifter and do shocks/springs later. My final question: Pro 5.0 w/ short stick or Factory Hurst w/ short stick? Thank you all.

If you have the hurst option just get a short stick, no need for a whole shifter. I just got my UMI short stick w/my factory hurst. Simply awesome. $25 stick and took about 15min to do. Shifting has never been so much fun.



FYI - I also just ordered shocks to go w/the eibach springs that have been sitting in my room for 2 years lol. So i speak from experience hahaha

I ditched the stock shifter for the Hurst Billet Plus, and have not turned back yet. It feels more solid. I would have trouble slamming the gears and not hitting the gate on the 2-3 with the stock hurst. Plus I broke it off while 1-2 one day on an on-ramp. short stick is a worthwhile mod as well.
