NOTE: This linkage fits ONLY 2004 - on B6/B7 A4 6-speeds with the 02X and 01X manual transmission If you desire the ultimate in shifting, the JH Motorsports B6/B7 A4 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.
INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING - JHM shift shaft link(reuse your stock rubber boot), 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 B6/B7 A4 6-speeds, 2004 and On. The removal of the linkage rod is not too bad on the 1.8t and the 2.0t since it is located on the drivers side (Opposite side of where the downpipe is). COMES AS A COMPLETE DO IT YOURSELF KIT Cutting is required to allow proper clearance. VIEW COMPARISON VIDEO -->HERE
NOTE: This video was done on a B5 S4 which has the same basic design and works in the same fashion, the B6/B7 A4 linkage just looks a little different and has a shorter cross rod. VIEW INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS -->HERE
NOTE: These instructions only cover the installation of only the actual kit once the linkage rod is removed from the car. VIEW INFORMATIONAL VIDEO ABOUT THE LINKAGE ON CARS EQUIPPED WITH A 6 SPEED -->HERE

NOTE: Some cutting of your OEM linkage rod is required, other than that, this is a full bolt in kit.
INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING - JHM Delrin 2-piece bushing to replace the OEM rubber bushing, 1 - steel washer, 1 - Mounting bolt and 1-steel bushing insert. (This bushing is located at the transmission and is separate from our shifter) VIEW COMPARISON VIDEO -->HERE VIEW INSTALLATION VIDEO -->HERE
NOTE: This video is just a guide. The install was done on a 5 speed car, on a 6 speed car the bushing is on top of the trans and is more difficult to access. VIEW INFORMATIONAL VIDEO ABOUT THE LINKAGE ON CARS EQUIPPED WITH A 6 SPEED -->HERE
NOTE: This video helps you have a better understanding of the linkage and how this bushing would be replaced. PICTURE OF THE JHM BUSHING VS. STOCK -->HERE
NOTE: This bushing will transfer more noise and vibration to your shifter and shifter box vs. the stock rubber bushing. This is what gives you the enhanced feel and confidence when shifting. This is recommended for serious enthusiasts only; who want to fully compliment their JHM solid short throw shifter and linkage upgrade and want their car to shift as precise as possible.
