Default Auto Shift Ball ?

I would like to replace my automatic shift ball with something custom. Does anyone know a web site to go to?

Are you sure that you did not mean aftermarket? The only "custom" shift balls I know of our from Brian aka 2step?
PTCrew.com - View topic :: Welcome Gemstone Shift Knobs

PTCrew.com - View topic :: My New Shift Knobs Sometimes Go In Old Cars

The is an aftermarket for our automatic.

There is a video on YouTube that shows you how to replace a shift knob from an auto with any, yes any, shift knob you want. I think this is the link.

http://youtu.be/Q8GLOM-T-bE

Not the best video, but you'll get the gist.

Take in account the "weight" on some shifter balls and what that does to the lock out. A custom spring may be needed.

And, my flame ball require a little shortening of the shifter rod to make it work correctly.
I did a thread years ago, including a drawing of the mod of the rod tip.
