I wish there was a DIY for this that included pictures of how to do this from start to finish. I just read all 7 pages and all of the information is a jumbled mess in my head since everybody adds another 2c at various parts of the thread.
You can get a kit on ebay for $250 shipped but I don't know what it will be missing and what I will have to order. I'd rather not find that stuff out in the middle of the swap.
Questions in my mind:
1. Will the shift boot from the 02 console fit the 05 console or will I need to buy a new shift boot to use my stock shifter? If so, what kind?
2. What needs to be done to make the ebrake have the proper amount of slack and engage as it should?
3. What would be the proper way to "bend" the ebrake without risking damaging it?
4. Is it necessary to rebuy all the screws and fasteners or can the 02 hardware be re-used?
