Did the install this weekend. Hardest part was getting the damn shifter into the socket. ...I ended up taking a dremel and slightly grinding down the ball.
I did have trouble getting my SS ball in too (on my wrx install), until I figured out that I needed to firmly hold the SS's ball against the nylon socket while I smacked it with the mallet. Popped right in.
Before it was just bouncing back up off of the socket.
