Correct me if I am wrong but I was under the assumption that while replacing the drive shaft (to aluminum that is) the Tri-ax could also be accomplished. Removal of the trani to accomplish this was never a consideration. The Tri-ax was only needed in my application to accomodate the additional height of the shifter for the line lock button and pistol grip shifter. Talk to me about trani removal?:confused:

Thanks 07, still unsure which method I will follow for installation of the tri-ax shifter or whether this whole application is even worth it just to accomodate the pistol grip with line lock combo? It seems that working through the console for the in Vehicle Repair would be some what tight working conditions. Then again will wait to see the actual shifter as I believe the pics and actual shifter will tell the story as to which process is the best. Are you thinking of this application and if so which method have you chosen?

Finally got the shifter installed. Took a few hours. Had to take Drive Shaft off, driver side exhaust plus x-pipe and Transmission crossmember to lower the Trany enough to reach the top of the shifter to be able to get to it. While the Drive Shaft is out I am replacing it with a one piece unit. I weighed the two and the Stock Drive shaft weighs 20 pounds more.

Sounds like another happy Evolution customer. Evo. got me as well.:p Sounds as though there is an install method between trani removal and in vehicle repair method.:rolleyes:

While I did have to unbolt the tranny cross member and lower the tail of the transmission, I did not have to remove the driveshaft or unbolt the exhaust to install the Steeda TriAx. Yes the clip holding the driver side of the factory shifter is a tough reach but if my big hands can do it.....

Installing the TriAx was much easier than removal of the factory shifter. The tranny does not have to come out.
