New Steering wheel and shift knob help

Hi so fairly new to this so I apologise if this sounds stupid, which it likely will.
I own a '99 Lancer CE Coupe (1.5 manual) and want to replace the worn shift knob and the ugly worn wheel
First question: what boss kit should i be using for the wheel? I found this (BK181L) but wasnt sure if this would fit (pictures below for reference)
Second Question: is anything required other than unscrew old knob and screw in new knob to replace the shift knob? Looking at universal knobs.
Thanks for any help.

Also any insight as to whether i can get an instrument cluster with a tacho installed?

universal shift knobs should work as some either have the same thread of have those rubber bits to put over and grub but lock the shifter in place,

that steering wheel boss kit is the correct one, I use one of those with a 1992 Isuzu Gemini Momo Lotus steering wheel, don’t cheap out on steering wheels as some tend to bend overtime, or the material used becomes worn and looks like *poo*

Saas wheels are fine i guess. Just avoid ebay ones, have seen a few break on bend.
Suede can get dirty and damaged quickly, again from what i have seen.
My wheels is as leather base materiel. feels really nice and doesn't get dirty.

new SAAS are junk. anything from SCA/Autobarn are junk.

buy a momo at the very least. you can pick up a decent second hand one for about $150/200ish.


find a gearknob with a thread in it, adaptors or not. anything with the 3 grub screw setup: junk.

My dad had an old autotechnic or whatever it was from super cheap in his ute, got it maybe 10 years or so ago, it was decent but if someone says the new ones are *poo*, avoid them like the plague, can’t go wrong with a momo, even a second hand one in decent condition
