GARAGISTIC STANDARD SHIFT SELECTOR JOINT
Pre-Order Notice: This is currently pre-order pricing. Selector joints are scheduled to ship December 1st. Any order placed with a "pre-order" product will NOT ship until the pre-ordered product is ready to leave.
One of the most noticeable easy changes you can make to get rid of your BMW’s shifter slop is replacing your aging OEM selector joint! Our Garagistic selector joints are produced in-house from billet aluminum. We have taken the 30+-year-old BMW selector joint design and brought it up to date by swapping out the plastic stationary bushing for a precision sealed bearing assembly. By utilizing our new DSSR hardware that replaces the traditional pins and clips, this new design will allow you to snug the DSSR down on the selector joint without any binding and further eliminates any remaining slop in the shifter assembly.
We recommend replacing your selector joint every time you refresh the shifter components to ensure a consistent tight feel. Why not upgrade to the Garagistic Billet Selector Joint!
DO I NEED A SELECTOR JOINT, AND WHY?
These shift selector joints (BMW PN# 25117503525) will install on both Getrag and ZF transmissions giving proper fit for a DSSR (double shear selector rod). This is especially important on the E30 transmission that came from a car prior to 8/89 manufacture date. The earlier model shift selector joint has an offset cylinder that is wider than the later model version. This earlier model does not fit a DSSR as the longer cylinder will not fit between the U cradle of the DSSR. As always with aging BMW parts it is also advised to change the shift selector joint whenever you are doing a shifter component service.
The aging BMW transmissions are generally showing their age and this selector joint ( BMW PN# 25117503525) has a plastic bushing that can wear out and cause slop. This selector joint is just one link in the system that can help tighten up your shifter feel and overall driving experience. Recommend changing these in the older BMW for maintenance. Mandatory to change the selector joint for use with a DSSR.
WHAT CARS WILL THIS BMW SHIFT SELECTOR JOINT WORK IN?
All BMW Getrag and ZF transmissions, especially those applicable to E30 and E36 chassis.
