Hi guys, need help here. So I got my short shifter installed and bushings as well. However, when I shift to 2nd, 4th and 6th, I hear this rattling sound from the shifter. Yet, when I shift with the reverse lockout pulled up (I know you shouldn't be doing this but just wanted to try), the rattling sound goes away and it shifts smoothly. I'm worried because whenever I go from 1st to 2nd, it feels hard to shift once in a while and feels like it gets stuck sometimes. I don't wanna shift hard because I might break something. Anyways, the guy at the shop who installed it told me that it's the pin inside the shifter that's making this rattling sound and he says it's normal (he meant that it's a flaw) for aftermarket short shifters and I hope he installed everything right. I don't wanna think of regretting buying the short shifter for the hopes of having smoother and crisper shifts. Is there anything I need to adjust or get checked again? Let me know what you guys think. Thanks.
