What's the consensus on shifter base bushings?

I remember using both a homemade setup and 'kit' back in the day(around 2000 or so) but thought it made everything more notchy and ended up taking them out. I have never bothered to used them since. Is everyone still doing this mod and what is the consensus on them?

Re: What's the consensus on shifter base bushings?

I've put my symborski kit in every 1g I've ever driven. I found that when my cables were properly adjusted and other bushings were good, the shifter felt more stable during quick shifting. You could get the same effect by using washers as the shifter base doesn't care as long as it's secured.

I have them in my car and fathers car. Both cars shift great and seem to have a more solid feel.

Re: What's the consensus on shifter base bushings?

Hmm, maybe Ill try the mod in my Talon for next year and see how I like it. Thanks for the imput guys.

On a side note... Ive always done the shifter cable bearing mod and love it. I also have the aluminum solid cable bracket spacer and have been a fan of that as well.

Re: What's the consensus on shifter base bushings?

I believe I have poly shifter base bushings in the red car. Definitely felt a difference when I put them in. I never adjusted the cables or did any mods. I'm sure there's a bit of slack I could take out.

Put them in my car, and did urethane bushings at the trans at the same time, the combo made it feel more solid and took a little mushy feeling out of it.

Re: What's the consensus on shifter base bushings?

I've got all 3 in both cars (shifter base, cable ends and bracket mount). Both have shep built trans. My fathers 1g has a 2g tranny in it and shifts super smooth, has a stock clutch in it. Mine is a bit notchy but in a good way. Not sure if its due to double syncro's though out or the act flywheel and 2600 clutch. Both feel very direct which is nice. Its been years since I've driven something stock.

Had washers on the shifter base for about 10 years now, love the shifts.

The shifter base under the shift knob and the bracket that holds the cables to the transmission.
