Awesome DIY. Thanks.
It will be better access but not much. The pictures are with the arm rotated as far out as it will go.^ good to know. If I can avoid removing the battery and tray and move the shift for greater access it's a win win.
Thanks for the DIY gonna order now!
What you need to do like I did after I installed the bushing kit. Just pull out the shifter boot and grease the hell out of the shifter ball and etc then tell me what you think of it.An update to the post I made earlier:
I got in the car this morning and started it, was a tiny but harder to put it in gear than usual. So I began my morning commute and it progressively got smoother. About 20 minutes into the drive I find myself just sliding it in. I can safely say the shifts are now extremely crisp and accurate, no more wobbly shifts and muddy transitions. I guess the bushings needed a few miles to fully break in. For such an inexpensive mod, I can't see why not getting it.
Always a good idea to make sure your ball is well greased after working on your bushings.What you need to do like I did after I installed the bushing kit. Just pull out the shifter boot and grease the hell out of the shifter ball and etc then tell me what you think of it.
I'll just let that statement stand on its own. LolAlways a good idea to make sure your ball is well greased after working on your bushings.
I just grabbed the ring from the inside, through the vinyl, and pulled straight up. It was a bit reluctant (I was going to say stiff, but I don't want to get banned from the form today) but with some tugging it just popped off.How does this boot come off? I've searched and only found how to remove the elantra one, but that looks nothing like this.
Just watch this video you will see how it done.How does this boot come off? I've searched and only found how to remove the elantra one, but that looks nothing like this.
No issues past them just not originally fitting. Shifting is noticeable from day one of install and hasn't changed since. Definitely MUCH better than stock.Thanks for DIY write up HH, mine are coming in on Monday and Injen SRI on Wednesday. So I can install them both at once over the weeken. To me, MT in our cars feels too loose and bouncy; I am really looking forward to having crispier shifts.
Have you had any issues with bushings so far?
How does shifting feel after few months of use?
