Knowing what vehicle, transmission and what SSK would help. I've installed 4 of different varieties and though all similar, some had minor nuances.

B&M SSK in a 5spd 9x6 - clean fit, no issues once appendix removed (green plastic part under right cable)
B&M SSK in a 6spd 9x7 - clean w/ no fit or cable issues
OE 9x7 SSK in a 6spd 9x7 - clean w/ no fit or cable issues
OE 9x7 shifter in a 5sp 9x6 - issues w/ left cable being a tad tight w/ no adjustment room. Had to put it in very last threads (which was technically out of alignment w/ markings before install)*

*Technically the 9x7 OEM shifter is not a SSK but relatively speaking it provides much shorter shifts than OEM 9x6 shifter. Assume results would be same if using a 9x7 SSK in a 9x6 vehicle.

Are you fitting a 9x7 shifter (either OEM or SSK) into a 9x6?
