    shifting much bettah!

    got around to installing my last energy suspension bushing from the master pack purchased a while ago. the front shifter bushing. a one piece unit made of really hard poly. the trick is using a old bearing race to guide the bushing into the shifter shaft. with a press. worked great with a bit of lube. that coupled with the group n' rear bushing, tic trans cross member bushings and clunk killer kit, and a torque solution pitch stop(saw a beatrush the other day. should have, ya.) but it's all working quite nicely. the only Really noticeable nvh came from the pitch stop. and honestly, its kinda cool and only noisy at startup.
    the gears all line up and shift well but i see the added increase of force(or patience, my preferred)from the stiffer bushings. no complaints. my car stopped thrashing about on pull away from a stop sign from sloppy marshmallow bushings and a torn pitchy. sense of speed is a bit off to now because there isnt the terrific JERK when rowing gears. there is soooo much less driveling slop. almost none. its great! i am topping out at 5500rpm though, old motor. yay, another job complete and noticeable difference!
