Does anyone know if you need to buy a certain size of shifter knob for a manuel G5? Im just looking to buy one off of ebay, but i noticed some had different dimensions than others.

I believe you need an adapter or a short shifter.

I've owned two separate shift knobs that are "universal" and I would advise against buying them.

Half the time they break, or don't stay tight and fall off mid-shift.

If I were you, spend the extra money to thread the shifter yourself, and buy a new threaded shift knob (my 08 g5 is 12mm x 1.75). Then you will also need a new shift boot depending on the length of your new nob, unless you don't mind the two not connecting.

May be a bigger upfront cost, but will save you frustrations in the end, plus it looks way better.
