yes it's true, i have one as well as many others here. I got mine at pep boys for about $35. You can get them off of ebay for even cheaper. It doesn't really matter which brand, they're all the same. Just a little difference in thickness and maybe color.
The only problem is you will need to buy some spacers or something because at the very bottom where the bolt goes through the bearings, the width is a little smaller than ours. All you would have to do is go to a hardware store and buy 2-4 washers to go next to it. I know it sounds confusing, so if someone can explain better, please feel free. Otherwise, you'll see what i mean when you get it. It sure does beat the hell out of a $250 Stillen shifter. I was definately over that.
