I am new here, and believe there is/was another write up but on a different knob,yet I thought I'd share my adventure in replacing the OEM knob. First off, let me give my thanks to those on this or the other forum that have played with replacing the shift knob, insight from there was helpful in replacing mine. How so? We'll, learning that we share our shift column and knob with the Dodge Dart and some interwebs perusing led me to shift knobs by Craven Speed. I am in the PNW, so I felt at home that they were too, I just hope there not Oregon Ducks fans. So, I popped the top off the old one and used a 10mm socket to take the knob assembly off. Here is a comparison between the two bottoms, Craven on the left and OEM on the right. Craven definitely feels more substantial, and I wish it include the aligning notch as the OEM has, but I'll just eyeball the centering. That looks about right. Done. The brown is a nowhere near a match to the trim surrounding the shift boot, but I think it is better than black. I can always replace it down the road if need be. I manipulated the shift stick in the parking lot and it feels so much better not to have plastic in my palm. The added weight might help, but I am not sure I'll be too keen to the advantage until I am driving the thing. Thanks again!
