You want my blue batmobiled taillights?

They're not perfect but they're an improvement.

I did the front and rear cobb bushings which were a pain to do but i just want to get rid of the play in my shifter, it gets annoying. Also i'm debating on buying the crossmember bushings, are they any good and what are the benefits?

Lawrence USED to be that bad. They cleaned up the whole city, put a bunch of nice parks in, and have been cracking down on stuff for the past several years.

Surprisingly Fitchburg is ranked worse than Lawrence for drugs/violent crimes/ and just being a giant dumpster. Wong wanted to do the same thing in fitchburg as Lawrence did, but failed miserably

How much play are we talking here?

Benefits of the bushings is that they are new and stiffer than the factory ones ever were. Replace all of them in your car and you will definitely feel the difference

Exactly what he said, also you might want to look into TiC pivot bushings and they make another one, basically it replaces everything. Also maybe a stiffer transmission mount, I installed a beatrush mount and it made huge difference. You hear the gears more and there is added vibration but I also have a lightweight flywheel so it's more intense
