it depends what kind of bushings you are looking for. Usually when you change bushings it's to put in stiffer ones such as endlinks for the sway bar or the control arm bushings.

Hope this helps,

Stefan

Bushing just prevet metal to metal contact, reducing vibration etc.
Stiffer busings on a short shifter will eliminate some of the slop, when your shifter is in gear try pushing foward on it there is a fair amount of play there, stiffer bushing will eliminiate that giving your a more "notchey" felling.
