Got an F28 ready to go into the Corsa, it's currently using an F20. What do people do with the linkage as I don't fancy messing about with it and not be able to select gears properly.

Does anyone sell the linkage or a short shift to make the job a little easier?

What have you people with F28's done/used?

you still have to shorten the end that connects to the gear selector in the box though even with an lmf linkage

Wouldn't have thought so with an LMF linkage as they are specific for the F28 into corsa :S.

oh really? cant work out how that would work then as it must move the linkage back nearly into the steering rack to give it enough movement with the longer piece onto the gear selector?

tbh ive no idea.

Seems to be a bit of a gray area about this. Anyone have a link to the one on LMF? Is it under Calibra?

I've got an LMF F28 shortshift linkage here and it looks different to my LMF F20 linkage.

if all you get is whats in the picture on the website then you will still need to cut and weld it.
