smooth from 1st to 2nd little hard from 3rd to 4th.I got the new bushings butdid not install yet.The kit does not come with directions but found good directions from i-club.Shifter was 20 min.job.Bushings look hard.
Kartboy here too. Don't know why you'd want to pay double for the same thing. The Kartboy bushings are excellent as well. I instlled the shifter one week and the bushings the following. The bushings make it a LOT smother. Like click, click click. They were real easy to install. Granted I had a lift available and I think thats the key. They are under the middle of the car and if I had to lay on my back it would not have been fun. But up on a lift piece of cake I think it took 20 mins tops.
