Please read the ENTIRE first post before asking any questions, sending any payments, or even thinking about posting in this thread.

The Product



Toss your shifter into third gear, now wiggle your shifter side to side. *If you've got more than 1/4" of travel you most likely suffer from a worn shift socket (every w58 I've ever seen has had it) *No problem you say? You'll just replace the bushings? Negatory, that only replaces the shift seat and knuckle bushings. Replacing the socket shouldn't be much harder, right? *Ready to cough up over $125 for the parts and pull/split the tranmission to fix it? *...nah, me either. *This option allows you to do it all from the shifter hole to great result. *I slam gears on my 7m mk2 race car with this kit, the precision and solid feel assure I never miss a shift. *I wake up, snick my celica GTS into gear, and roll out along my daily duties, without the wobble ever-present on the stock shifter and no noticeable increased vibration or noise. *The shift feel on this kit eclipses anything you've ever felt in these cars, I promise.

This shift bushing kit is a drop-in option for repairing the worn shift socket within the transmission (#3) WITHOUT dropping and splitting the transmission (and paying Toyota ~$100 for the part). *The kit also comes with a delrin shifter nuckle bushing (#2) and an upgraded delrin seat bushing (#1) to finish up the set. *I guarantee this to be the best shifter feel, with over 350 already sold, the positive feedback is ROLLING in... *Don't be left wondering if you're shifting into second or fourth, fix it right, fix it once, and enjoy it!

see below for bushing arrangement


Install instructions are HERE. *<-- *THIS IS IMPORTANT

There are two ways to figure out if it'll work for the r154 guys.

A: Take some measurements on the steering nuckle of a r154 for me. I need a picture from the top down, and a measurement of the three visible rings' (as seen in my instructional thread) inner diameter. (First person to do this will get some compensation for their time.)

B. Wait until someone else with the r154 fits it.

Let me know,

It fits the R154 However the brass bushing is not necessary, as toyota did not use a bushing in the R154.

I'm assuming this works in the R154 and if so, put me down for one :)

Ok, Friday (tomorrow) put me down for 2 sets without the brass bushing (for the R154). I'll pm you and send the paypal tomorrow.

Ok guys, we're getting close to having enough to make a run of shipments.

I should be shipping within a week.

--billyM
Billy, I'm ready to pay for two sets both without the brass bushing. It's $40 shipped for both through paypal, right?
