Default Kartboy bushings installed

Installed these Saturday morning and they do make a difference. It used to be when I'd shift from neutral to 1st, it would kinda squish. Now it's nice and solid and seems a little easier to get into gears. I've very happy with the mod and it compliments my KB shortshifter well. Much thanks to RockyWRX for the help with the install.

How long was the install? I have had the KB shifter in for some time, but never installed the bushings. Sounds like I should dig them out of the garage.

The install went super quick. One bolt and then forcing the stock one out. That RockyWRX may be small, but he's wiry I had mine in the garage forever too and finally got motivated enough to do it.

Glad you're happy with the new bushing, wrxlvr. BTW, I found your old bushing on my garage floor after you left. Not sure if you want it, but I'll bring it to the 6/22 meet on the chance that you'll be there.

Sorry to read about your encounter with a curb. I scraped a couple of my stock rims against a curb last winter. I hate when that happens!

It probably wouldn't hurt to have the stock one around. When am I going to learn to clean up my toys? I think you cursed me by talking about when you scraped the curb last winter.

wrxlvr, are you related to Dolphin? I swear you must be...he leaves all his stock parts lying in my garage when he's done working on his car

I don't know dolphin, but my biological father left when I was pretty young, so I probably have little brothers and sisters all over the country.
