      I bought this cable thinking I might get lucky and it would work,But boy was I wrong it broke from the cheap plastic it's made before I got it installed. I bought one from O'Reilly's and it works fine it is made by Pioneer INC it looks like the factory one we took off. BEWARE THIS CABLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          This product is a waste of time and money. Installed with no problems. Cycled through the gears 2 times and the cable started separating. Took it back, got another one and the same thing happened with that one also. Really poor quality, so don't even waste you time.

                      I have put 3 of these on an 88 camaro in the last month. The last one broke when trying to put it in the mounting bracket. Very cheaply made and i would not buy another one from Dorman.

                          This cable is not holding up, the cheap plastic, allows the cable to shift where it mounts on the transmission, and the car will not go back into park , don`t waste your money on this one, buy a higher quality part!!

                              Do not buy waste your money on any Dorman Shift Cables. I bought this for my 92 Z28 and I ended up wasting my time and money on this horrible product. I bought two cables at the same time after hearing how badly these cables are made, hoping to get lucky but I couldn't be more wrong. First cable broke before we could even install it, and the second one went bad in a matter of months. I'm currently looking into an alternative product; like a B&M cable or any other company that doesn't have such low standards like Dorman. I highly recommend buying a stock cable from a junk yard or classifieds like [@]

                                    this cable is all around wrong, the cable isnt long enough for my 91 camaro, it wont let the car shift into park. The plastic parts that fit into the brackets have little plastic tabs that keep the cable steadfast in the brackets and they dont stay in the brackets. the plastic housing on the cable in the center console part of the cable breaks preventing the cable from moving correctly. I have gone through 2 of these in the span of 3 days. DO NOT BUY IF PRODUCT IS GOING ONTO A 90-92 camaro!

                                        The shift cable that you have is a good product that I have used and replaced on my 1987 z28 305v8 TPi with 700r4 auto transmission. You need to check what kind of trans on you car. The cheapest kind from Advance Auto parts store. Do not forget to apply oil into the cable before you install. This will help long term.
