    I broke mine since they're plastic pieces of crap. Does anyone use anything other than the stupid stock one? Or know where to get a replacement? I know there are solid ones for other cars like the s2000 but I really want to know if the ball sizes are close enough. Anyone? :) I recently...

    So I've recently installed a new shifter. One of the install instructions was "grease shifter cup/ball" but wasn't specific as to with what. I used what I had (dielectric grease) and completed the install. Either I didn't put enough, or it's not compatible, but shifts are notchy and require more...

    Trying to put my TWM shifter back together and I've run into a big problem. I can't get the pins to line up with the plastic bit that cups the ball protruding from the shifter. There's also a funny looking spring that I can't remember where it goes. Please help.

    Just purchased a 07 Eclipse GT. Got it really cheap because the door looks like it got hit with a cannonball and it has 112,000 miles on it. I'm going to have a mechanic look it over to do a run through of what I need to do to make sure she's running good. Love the styling of the car but the...

    I currently have a 2001 eclipse gt. As you probably know they have a horrible time going through ball joints, and I was just wondering if the 4Gs. Do that too or if mitsubishi fixed the problem. Please help cause I really want a 4G V6 and want to know what kind of maintenance it is going to require.
