"Short Throw" really is talking about the distance the shifter has to travel between shifting not necissarily the height of the shifter. In that case, no you don't need a different boot. Now put on a "shorter" shifter, which in case does not mean a new boot, because the boots are made of a flexible material and will fit a shorter shifter. If you put on a taller shifter, anything higher than 4 inches greater than factory, will need a custom made boot.
If it is just the shifter, try to remove the bolts at the top of shifter (UNDER RUBBER BOOT) to realign shift forks and free transmission.
First you must remove the plastic assembly around the shifter lever. This will require a flat head screwdriver. There are 4 screws total, and two are "hidden" behind plastic covers on the front of the plastic surrounding. They can also be popped off using the screwdriver. After that, remove the "coin holder" and the plastic from around the shifter. Pull off the boot and shifter mat. YOu will need a 12mm wrench or ratchet at this point to remove the 3 bolts that connect the shifter to the transmission. After those are removed you can pull out the shifter and you are done.
If you have amanual transmission You have to push down on the plastic ring above the shifter boot. after you push down the ring, Now you can unscrew the shifter knob. IF you have a automatic transmission you have to remove the screw on the side of the shifter knob. (Be careful the button on the shifter knob is spring loaded)
No, the transfer case 'Shifter Sheet' (not seat) is changed by removing the shifter from the inside of the vehicle. I recommend you get a manual and learn how to remove the shifter. Several are available for free download. It has been a while but from memory I can say that the rubber boot inside is pulled up followed bu the shifter rubber dust boot underneath, then you can push down on the retainer that is around the shifter and give it a 1/4 twist CCW to get it off, the shifter should pop out by pulling up on it. As I recall the knob has to be removed to replace the 'Sheet'.
On a manual transmission the bushing is located below the top cover of the transmission. remove the shifter boot and unbolt the 3-4 bolts that hold the shifter down.only available from your local dealer.
Move the nut on the shifter bolt from the front of the shifter(closest to engine) and put it on the rear of the shifter bolt. Tighten it as much as possible (did mine with a 17mm box end wrench). once it's tight, remove the nut and put in on the other side again (just enough to cover the threads.) A couple of quick taps with a hammer and out she comes !
carefully pry up on the boot around the shifter disconnect the wires then take the box out of the console and there under the box should be the bolts to remove the complete console
Remove boot There should be 4 bolts that hold the shifter into the transmission Make sure transmission is in neutral when removing
I just did this in my '86 because the transfer case would not shift I had to remove the shifter and realign the two shifting rods inside to get it out of neutral. Pull the shifter boot off the floor. Pull up the transfer case boot under the floor boot. remove the shifter by using a couple of screwdrivers to push down on the ring around the shifter at the bottom and turn CCW (1/4 turn), this will release the spring loaded catches that hold the shifter in (don't worry you will not lose anything). When you extract the shifter you will see the 'ball' on the shift lever, the shifter sheet is what this ball sits on inside the transfer case. It is a cupped shaped piece of plastic like nylon and is often long ago disintegrated and missing, if not, pull it out and put in the new urethane or brass sheet and put everything back together. Hints: be sure to eliminate any burrs on the shifting ball that will cause premature failure of the sheet by filing them off.
The snap rings that hold the shifter in place have popped out and you will need to remove the boot to put everything back where it belongs.
