Someone's sent a sample in to manufacturer for appraisal and prototype design.SuperMat64 said:Does someone is able to tell me if this is possible ? And if yes, give me a link to the antenna used to do that.

Not sure if product is finished yet.
Last I read they were having problems with the screw thread or pitch.
Search "sharkfin antenna replace" for starters and maybe you can find the thread.
No problems for me, either. I don't have navi or XM, but onStar is fine.bfork1 said:Just curious how these aftermarket antennas affect the cellular operation of Onstar and the handsfree calls.
I agree with this. I've seen a few complaints about the antenna hitting the door and I've wondered tall you door open is. Mine is a 7' opening and I have plenty clearance. The door can be adjusted to up more.RSchleder said:For those that have the antenna too tall for going through your garage door, have you looked at the possibility of adjusting the stops on your door opener rails to allow the door to go up higher when open? Most doors can be adjusted to open the same height as the door frame.. I've seen a lot that are adjusted to be 6" or so below the door frame. My recommendation--take a close look, your fix may be very simple.
:facepalm:rjketche said:Hi...Just FYI:
I had the same problem with the antenna hitting the lowr edge of my gargare door upon entry/exit.
It only hit by about a 1/2", so I followed someone elses advice here on the forum, and just cut the top 1" off the antenne.
I bought some black Auto Goop and stuck on the insulated peice from a small aligator clip over the cut end.
No loss of signal whatsoever, and you cannot even tell that I cut a small section off the antenna.
The way I figured it was that I was prepared to pay to buy a new Shake Fin Antenna anyway, so it didn't make too much difference
if the cut antenna idea didn't work.
But it worked like a charm, and I saved myself the $$$!!
