Whether you know it as a gear knob or stick shift, your original Toyota or Scion shift knob is more important than it might seem. Sure, it's one of many parts of a manual or auto transmission. However, it's key to changing gears quickly, comfortably, and reliably. Why? For one, shift knobs are designed to provide better grips than a bare shift lever. Secondly, they display the gears you can shift into, not to mention the direction to pull in to get there. Grab your shift knob, put your foot on the clutch if you've got one, and pull the gear lever in the correct direction: you've effectively shifted gears. What a factory shift knob is made of depends on the OEM, but they're often made of plastic or metal. However, many sports cars and performance vehicles have carbon fiber shift knobs. Other genuine shift knobs can come vinyl-wrapped, or, in the case of a selection of luxury cars, wrapped in leather. Their sizes and shapes differ, and some types of shift knobs are weighted. Weighted shift knobs reduce shift effort, lowering shift time and making the process a lot smoother. Replace your OEM shift knob if it's overly frayed or worn out, or if you'd just like to give your cabin an eye-catching touch. The best shift knob for that, however, is Toyota & Scion brand; they're designed to fit your shifter right off the shelf. Order yours online today, right from out auto parts counter!
