Default Turner Polyurethane Shifter Arm Carrier Bushing

Can anyone provide any feedback that has this installed? NVH, difference felt, ect.

The cost is low and it states the DIY time is a .5 hours. On paper it sounds great. If for $33 dollars and less than an hour of my time is correct, it sounds like a no brainier.

Having Replaced my shifter bushings before .5 hours is very optimistic. Unless you have a lift and plenty of experience. I would put it more in the 2 to 3 range. (still not horrible)

From what I have heard and seen, it is a PIA to replace this thing. Its sitting right between the transmission tunnel and the transmission, in a very tight spot. Without a lift you are in for a big job.

Wrong. You’re thinking of the other end. This part could probably be replaced with driveshaft and exhaust in place. With those two removed, there’s plenty of room.

Nonetheless, It's still a PITA to get the housing out while not ruining/bending the thin metal. You reuse the metal with this type of poly bushing, but the OE rubber is bonded to that metal housing, so you have to scrape it clean as far as I can tell.

Garagistic makes this, but I couldn't get it to fit, it was just too tight so I returned it. it seemed like I could have shaved/drilled some of the poly or sanded down the shift arm, but I came to the conclusion that... (see next paragraph)

The most important thing, though, is that this doesn't do much beyond bring in a little more NVH - the shift arm doesn't move much at all back there -the OE rubber piece is just there to locate the arm - it doesn't provide any bush or suspension.

This is total waste of time/$ IMO & IME.

Thanks guys, looks like for the level of effort involved versus the benefits received I may pass on this for now.

The only way I could see doing a job like this and getting that deep into it is if you just simply replace the whole shifter for a short shift kit.

Based on their pictures, it looks like this comes with its own metal surround.

Good catch. That really helps imo, but you're still doing a mod that will do nothing but make your shifter slightly stiffer and vibrate more
