Hello all...sorry to ask a question Im sure has been asked thousand times but Its just easier to ask directly.
Im looking to buy a gear stick extension but want to make sure I get one that fits perfectly and does what it says on the box.
Thinking I probably need a angled one ?
Anyway...any advice on where to get a good one will be very much appreciated.
Thank you
Daniel

Got an Autobeds one from their eBay store, really well made and a nice tight fit for the knob.

I got a cheap angled one off ebay. It came with an 8 ball gear knob too. Only problem is its angled the wrong way!! Doesnt matter what i do i cant get it tight and pointing in the direction, so its constantly angled away from me making it almost as bad as not having an extension at all. Gonna get a straight one next.

Take it off and wind a nut down the thread before the extension, you can then tighten the nut up against the base of the extension to keep it in place.
