Yes, it really helps. The entire shifter mechanism (from shift ball to trans) has plenty of slop that contributes to the poor feel on SOME cars. Addressing each of the areas will result in the best overall feel but our RE-Enforcer certainly helps. Luckily you can also address each over time.Ah that will help tremendously! The re-enforcer seems to stiffen up the shifts and make it feel solid with no flex or sloppiness. It's hard to explain, but you will feel it once installed.
