Rear bushing was a PITA but finally doable. You have to barely thread one bolt in, then thread the other bolt. Then ratchet one-click-at-a-time.

Blue Loctite on the front bushing nut and shifter nut. Not something I would like to worry about.

Some people are worried about noise? Personally, I love the transmission whirr, it sounds awesome. Reminds me of what I paid for.

Great product, I enjoy it every time I drive!
Thanks for the input, I feel you did a good job explaining the rear bushing install a lot better then I did. It's definitely not fun doing the install without a lift but I, like you have to do things on the floor
Enjoy shifting!!
