Short Shifter options and questions

I am looking for short shifter options for my 99 9-3. What options do I have? I currently have a 3rd gear grind if I shift too fast, and I've removed the reverse lockout.

I was wondering if this GenuineSaab.com would work for my car.

I was also wondering if my 3rd gear grind would have any affect on me getting into third since it grinds if I shift too fast. I had someone take the reverse lockout for me so I'm not sure if the short shifter will affect the reverse lockout also.

Any reviews and or other ideas to stiffen up and make the car shift better is what I'm looking for. Do they make shifter bushings for our cars?

Any info would be appreciated.

ViggenFTW!

Replace motor mounts, re-align shifter, change fluid, shift slower, but no short shift is going to fix synchro's, if anything it will get worse. GS is pretty much the only option.

The GS one is your best bet. But you should know from the start that the short shifter might not help if the synchros are worn. Also...worn engine mounts can make quick gear shifts difficult...

EDIT: LOL....lms beat me to it!

defiantly change you tranny oil.. Most times good oil clears up shifting grinds.
