Did you get the cartridge bearing upgrade and delrin carrier bushings?? Those will give you a more snug fit and smoother shifting. You also might want to check and see if everything is on and tight. Otherwise, It shouldnt vibrate at all.

Oh sorry, I didnt see that you had the RE installed, my comment was for the UUC.
But I checked RE's website, your kit should include
  • Short shifter lever specific for this vehicle
  • External vibration dampening collar
  • New clips, washers, and pivot cup
  • Replacement shifter carrier with Pivot Relocation Cup
  • Delrin shifter carrier bushings
hmm... have you tried contacting RE ?

Well, even though you didn't get the UUC Ultimate Short Shifter, I think I can still help.

Things to check:

1) common shift boot leather vibration at top - lift up your shift boot, wrap a zip tie around the exposed flap. We see this happen even in original shifter-equipped cars.

2) check the installation of the SSK - under the leather boot is a rubber boot that is a heat and noise isolator. It is supposed to be tucked through the large hole in the floorpan. If it is not tucked in properly, you can hear noises from under the car.

3) check your shift knob itself, make sure it is seated properly. Some illuminated or wood knobs can vibrate after initial removal, but that tends to settle back down.

Please feel free to call us at UUC (732-398-0001) to troubleshoot other possibilities.
