If I'm not being pulled in like 72 diff directions, I'd love to. I have no idea how, but would love to learn (one day I'll do it to my car!).

Default Bushings...

My best friend did mine (I have NO car knowledge when it comes to installs)... It loked pretty simple, but the stock bushing was a bitch to get out. I'll see if he can show me how to do it again tonight....

Bank: did you get kartboy bushings too, then? I got a set yesterday in the mail too. It only took the USPS 2 weeks to get them to me priority mail. Geeeez.

Mine will be going in shortly along with a few other mods I have planned. I need some vacation time from work to do it.

Tom must've used something other than USPS Priority for yours then? He knew I was having trouble getting mine after they didnt' show up a week later. I'm glad I waited it out, though. He was going to ship me a new set yesterday and they ended up coming yesterday.

Or maybe the post office is just randomly deciding which packages to give priority over others. Or playing favorites. You have a man on the inside?

Kevin, just unplug your O2 sensor, remove the heat shield above your 2nd cat and its pretty easy from there...some stock bushings are harder than others and may have to be cut out. Good luck bro!

Didn't have to unplug the O2 sensor and remove heat shield on my car. Maybe i wouldn't be of too much help. Once you see where the shifter comes down though, you're all set.

I bet he types as fast as he talks! I can just imagine the rat-tat-tat of the keys!

Kev, I'd like to hang out and "supervise" the installation. My car came with the short shifter installed (wow ... I WUB IT!) and I plan on ordering the bushings pretty soon, so I'd like to see how it's done.

As Marty wrote, he spent last Saturday under Emi ... errr ... he spent last Saturday AT Emily's under his car, tinkering with those bushings. He might be able to lend some insight, although that is dubious considering the source.

i installed the shift bushings in about 45 min. Didn't remove the heat shield or sensor.
but i would recommend you do this when the car is cold, and use a light.
it is no a difficult mod, the hardest part was finding the bushing.
if anyone in Houston would like a hand installing them, PM me.

took me a little longer, but i agree, make sure the car is cold. exausts tend to damage skin when hot also, i would put a rag over the top of the sharp part of the exaust or you risk cutting your rists...THAT would hurt.

o, and i didnt remove anything either, but gettin the original bushing out of there was a pain in the arse!

I know I talk fast...hence my handle given me from my friend who set up my account. "I can't help it I gotta tell ya!"

In my experience Kevin, the process goes much faster when you remove the items discussed...total time including jacking up the car, 20 minutes.

By the way, just put in my new Corbeau Targa RS seats...jesus they're nice...took minor spacer placement and 1/2 inch cutting on the height adjustment portion of the bracket.

Laters,
B
