i would love to see this. There is no way you can do it in the car

Easy-- remove shifter linkage and carrier from under car, replace all bushings, cup, and maybe lever, re-install.

I'm not talking about the shift pins and detents in the transmission. If the shifter linkage bushings are worn to the point of fork-in-spaghetti, then that will cause vague nebulous shifting.

If those are in good condition, then you're already one step done towards pulling the transmission to do the detent/shift pins.

Big job, but you only want to have drop the transmission once.
Anyone in Ohio want to do this for me? I just bought everything to do this on my '99. I have zero interest doing this on my back in my garage with jack stands.
