Yes...you can spend $125 for a DSSR to fix a problem that a 10 cent washer can fix.

So something like this? Maybe get a few thinner ones and stack a couple of them up if needed?

Thanks!
Hey bud, the shifter is installed and I don't wanna jack the car up, but the bolts look like this - what you'll need is one big enough to fit the three square holes in the transmission tunnel around the shifter where the AKG mounts to. This just makes it easier to mount it yourself from up above. If you got a helper you can use any bolt head with a lock nut big enough to fit through the shifter mounting cutouts.

I believe it's called a cariage head bolt:

Just getting ready to do this install.
I've removed the bottom covers off the car and went out to grab an E14 socket to remove the midpipe.

I'm looking at some of the DIY's on MadRussian. They have 3 DIY's for different SSK's (Autosolution, Rogue, UUC). Too bad not a specific one for AKG.

Any of these should be good enough for me to follow along correct? Or is one better than the other for me to follow? There seem to be a lot of additional parts mentioned in these DIY's (mainly the Carriers). Since I'm not changing my carrier, I just skip this section right? Or do I need to remove my carrier in order to install my SSK/Shift lever?

So far i've been following the Autosolutions DIY. And one of the steps is to remove the tranny brace. Looks like this would be the perfect time to replace the OEM tranny bushings with my AKG 75D ones right? lol

Thanks all!

Oh ok. So a standard lock nut and bolt is sufficient if I have a helper to either in the car or under the car. But the square bolt head prevents the bolt from spinning so I could do it as a one man show.

Got it. Thanks! I'll see if I can find any of these at the hardware store/Home Depot.

Thanks!

Yeah you'll remove the carrier - you won't use that at all with the AKG shifter. The AKG just mounts to the selector rod which mounts to the gearshift rod joint, everything else get rid of.

Oh damn. I dont even use a carrier with my shifter? interesting. Good thing I checked!

Thanks for the link on the washer! I'll probably just end up swinging by the dealer to pick up a couple....they will probably rape me and charge $1 each or something stupid.

Awesome support. Much appreciated!

NP, shoot me a PM if you got any more questions and I'll try to help out.

BTW - I called up AKG today to order some dssr pins, and it went straight to VM stating that they had a family emergency and will be a little bit slower to respond and ship.

Just something pretty thin. A thin wave washer might work but I just use the OE yellow plastic washers. Typically, it's just 1 on each side of the shifter rod.
