So I got this $15 bushings thru the group price and based on some early testers posts saying how easy it is to install them I decided to put them in tonight. I spent over one and half hours trying all kinds of way to push the metal sleeve into the bushings once they were in place and I just eventually gave up. I'm sure they'll improve the shift quality once installed but I just couldn't get it to work. Just want to let you guys know that it is NOT as easy as Tic or other testers would want you to believe. I'm not very mechanically capable but I've installed short shifter on my Audi A4 before and I've installed my K&N Typhoon....I'm capable of following instructions to perform simple install but in this case the bushings' fitment is questionable. Perhaps they need to be this tight for them to give the sharp shifter feeling? Luckily I paid the professional people at Suby Specialties to install my previously purchased Tic Bodacious bushing bundle. And even the pro was complaining on the tight fitment of the Tic linkage bushings. Bottomline just be prepared.
