$500 for 2 bushings? Your mechanic is ripping you off beyond belief. You can buy brand new Energy Suspension polyurethane bushings for like $25 shipped to your door. They are a world of a difference. They get rid of a lot of shifter play and shifts feel more crisp.

wow 500 bucks big rip off... i dont see how anything for a shifter or the linkage should be anywhere around 500 bucks my advise look up on this and see how to do it urslef
