    how to add floor console shifter?

    I have an 06 impala its a ls. It currently has the steering column shifter. What will I need in order to change it from the column to the floor? Is it hard? Also is leather seats a direct bolt on? And is putting a leather steering wheel on hard to do?

    "Hard" depends on your level of expertise.

    The airbag must be removed to change steering wheels. Not for you to try if you're not really handy with tools and familiar with air bag systems. If they go off in your face and you're not properly positioned behind the steering wheel, it won't be fun.

    To even consider doing this, you need a donor car with the console and seats you want already in it. Possible to find in a wrecking yard. If your car has side airbags, you'll need to see how that might be affected.

    If the answer to the above is "no", you'll come out cheaper and safer to trade for an Impala equipped like you want it.
