NEW AND IMPROVED! Why? Even though we were already dominating the market with the most engineered and built shifter available for the B6/B7 S4 and RS4, in true JHM style we knew we could make it just that tiny bit better. After months of R&D we made some minor revisions to the shaft that really aid in adjustment. Why would we do this? There was a debate about the degree of difficulty for the adjustment of Reverse and 1st-2nd, some people said it was easy and some said it was hard. So we spent the last several months making some small revisions to make it easier for everyone without changing our superior shifting quality. NOTE: If you purchased a shifter from us in the past prior to this update and want it updated for easier adjustment, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for the FREE update program which includes free return shipping.
New JHM Steel shaft, JHM solid pivot assembly, Tig Welded Steel lower link, Delrin Bushings, New pushdown reverse springs (stock, medium and stiff), 4 bushings to allow more clearance in the shifter box for the most throw reduction possible and all other hardware. Retains stock shifter knob. Instructions are not included with the package, just use the video and document links below and watch prior to installing. COMES COMPLETELY ASSEMBLED (retains pushdown reverse) Ready to be installed into your factory base.
Our B6/B7 S4 and RS4 specific shifter is configured as follows. 1/2" shorter knob height and 40% and 25% reduction settings (you adjust as needed, ships in the most popular 40% setting). See this pic for more info regarding the adjustment -->HERE
Additional pushdown reverse springs included for those aggressive drivers that have the tendency to accidentally push the shifter down while shifting. Comes assembled with the soft spring (plain) and comes with a medium (silver) and stiff (gold) spring to taylor to your liking. PICTURE OF A DISASSEMBLED JHM SHIFTER -->HERE

If you desire the ultimate in shifting, the JH Motorsports B6/B7 S4 and RS4 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 Modified OEM shift shaft link (Updated OEM version 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 B6/B7 S4 and RS4 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. VIEW COMPARISON VIDEO -->HERE VIEW INSTALLATION VIDEO -->HERE
This install video was done on a B5 S4 linkage, however the install process is the same.
NOTE: This video covers 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: This video helps you have a better understanding of the linkage and how this shift rod would be removed for replacement. PICTURE OF THE JHM LINKAGE UPGRADE FULLY ASSEMBLED -->HERE PICTURE SHOWING THE DETAILS OF THE INSTALL -->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.

I purchased the JHM supercharger kit, Cat back, Downpipes, Trio and more.
My car finally feels like how it should have been built from the beginning. The visceral connection is hard to describe, the power is extraordinary, the shifting is incredible, the exhaust note is so sublime I keep turning off the radio just so I can hear it better. I am now dreaming of a built motor. You are the best!

- Not an out and out speed mod, but this WILL make your car more fun to drive. The shifter is something you use thousands of times a year and this one makes the car feel like a Porsche or Ferrari. This is a massive improvement over stock, typical JHM over-engineering. Coupled with the 034 trans mount, the car feels new again. (Posted on 1/1/2012)
