All of the shifter bushings, bearings, clips, shims were just replaced brand new OE or RE... everything.

The bushing did not break... I broke the rear bushing loose of its securing body clamp - #4 below, by hammering down on the shift knob with my open hand trying to get it on tighter.

I got the bushing/shifter linkage all back together (as described in previous post) so no big deal... was just curious if anyone else had this issue and what adhesive/sealant they used (or suggest to use) to get the knob on there a little more secure... but loose enough for one day when I might need to remove the knob again...

I ended up using some silicone, we'll see if that works....
good clarification... keep us updated if the silicone trick works
