Short Shifter Kit - 22R/RE (4WD) (1985-1988) (W56-A & B - With Top Shift T-Case)
Does your shifter handle feel loose? Does it have a lot of play? Are you tired of reaching into the glove box to find 5th gear? LCE's short shifter's reduce the throw by over 40%, a span of 5" of movement! This short shifter kit allows you to keep the stock two piece style shifter handle which will reduce noise and vibration when compared to a one piece. These kits come with new heavy duty shifter end bushings as well as heavy duty shifter seats to replace the old worn out stock rubber seats.
Toyota made a few different variations between 85-95 so make sure you get the correct short shifter for your application. If you have any questions be sure to call into our sales line or e-mail your application questions to us so we can verify you get the right parts for your application. Below is a quick breakdown of the different options and availability:
This kit fits 1985-1988 22R/RE 4wd Trucks and 4Runners. These years came stock with W56-A and W56-B style transmissions. These are commonly referred to as "Top Shift" since the transmission has the normal 5 speed shifter; and the transfer case shifter is located on "Top" of the transfer case itself (as pictured below).
These kits fit the 1989-1995 22R/RE Trucks and 4Runners. These years came stock with two different styles of transmissions; the G58 and the W56-C, D & E. We do not have a shifter yet for the G58(we will be working on that one soon). This kit fits the W56-C, D & E applications. It is easy to determine which transmission you have by simply looking at the top of your transmission to determine what type of top plate design you have. The G58 has a 4 bolt plate that houses only the transmission shifter. The W56-C, D & E transmissions have a 6 bolt plate that houses the transmission shifter and the transfer case shifter. That is why these are commonly referred to as "Forward Shift" since the transfer case shifter is located in the transmission; forward of the transfer case itself.
*Please check your bolt pattern before ordering to verify you are ordering the correct part for your application*
