WOW what a pain in the rear. Replaced the shifter bushings on the 6 speed manual, transmission side, well all actually since it was apart. Darn pin was seized in from corrosion and bushings we're completely wasted.
Had to drop exhaust and drive shaft, which I seen on here people were doing it without, IDK how.
Shout out to Creative Steel. Fast friendly service, great product.

Well that went well, it took longer to remove back seat than it did to change the strut's. FE3 strut's are definitely larger diameter than FE1--
I wouldn't advise trying to cheap out here.

The bushings may have been a pain in the ass to replace, but they should make the shifter feel a helluva lot better and make the car way more enjoyable to drive.
