JHM Solid Linkage Upgrade for B5 S4, 2000 - 2002(all)




NEW AND IMPROVED! Now weighted for smoother shifts and at the same price!

If you desire the ultimate in shifting, the JH Motorsports B5 S4 Solid Linkage Upgrade is the perfect solution. This linkage upgrade replaces the OEM rubber/plastic socket assembly with a steel spherical bearing (similar to what the JHM Solid Shifter does for the OEM shifter box). This will give you a full mechanical race car feel, and eliminates sloppiness allowing you to optimize shifts on the street or at the track. The linkage is most purposeful when used with the JHM Solid Shifter and the JHM Delrin Shifter Stabilizer Bushing, however these parts will compliment any SS kit, including stock shifters.

To completely upgrade your stock shifting components for the best possible shifts, make sure to add our Solid Short Throw Shifter and the Solid Stabilizer Bushing to your order if you do not already have them.

B6/B7 S4/RS4 Solid Shifter, Linkage & Bushing

INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING - JHM Modified OEM shift shaft link (Updated OEM version from a B7 RS4 with weight to aid in shifting ease and performance) ($80 from dealer), JHM Modified Steel Spherical bearing, stainless steel spacers, all hardware, loctite and synthetic grease.

(This linkage is located at the transmission and is separate from our shifter) This linkage fits all B5 S4 6-speeds. The removal of the linkage rod is time consuming and is easiest done when doing a clutch replacement or downpipe replacement. It can be done without either of those, but to save on labor it is best done when performing one of those mods or jobs.

COMES AS A COMPLETE DO IT YOURSELF KIT Only some cutting is required to allow proper clearance.


NOTE: This video covers the installation of only the actual kit once the linkage rod is removed from the car.

NOTE: This video helps you have a better understanding of the linkage and how this shift rod would be removed for replacement.



NOTE: Some cutting of your OEM linkage rod is required, other than that, this is a full bolt in kit.
