I looked up a DIY for the short shifter. Aside from the $8 snap ring pliers and some kind of shifter grease *giggity* it sounds like I could easily do the short shifter.
The shifter bushings I'm less comfortable with. I know it should be on a lift and I should probably know what Im looking at.
My problem is time. I'll probably do it once it is warmer in May or June. Maybe I can host some type of "short shifter install" meet and I'll supply beer and BBQ for assistance?
