    quick question

    trying to install the kartboy shifter bushings and was wondering if doing the rear before the front makes a difference, or the other way around?

    You mean like doing one or the other first during install, or doing one now & the other later on down the road.

    Doing them all now, but one before the other

    If you have to choose one to do, do the rear. Otherwise, do both at once (since you're there anyway)

    Already done. I suggest buying a lift. It made working underneath actually fun

    I've done bushings with a car on ramps/stands and on a lift. A lift is certainly ideal.

    I started with ramps up front and jacks in rear. Finally just called my cousin so I could use his lift. Took no time at all.

    Hey, at least I didn't need a creeper.. I just took my shirt off and the sweat lubricated my back so well it was like I was on a creeper. That's how most of my DIY work goes here in central TX.

    Another quesion. After driving around all day today after the install, I first though "WOW the shifts are amazing" but was in neutral. When I would start to drive it was still great but shifting 1st to second was kinda a B. Coming down from first then, feels like it doesnt want to go then into second. this all happens fast. but then when at a light everythig feels GREAT again. Nice and smooth shifts through all gears without blockage. Is this normal?
