If you have a sloppy 5 spd. shifter try this. I made one out of nylon on lathe. It will fit 89-94 not sure about other years. You will need 2 total.
These go in directly under shifter.

Make them up and sell them! I'd buy a set. I installed a Honda short shifter in my MK3 and it seems to be really sloppy. It shifts just fine otherwise.

if you are taking it all apart you could really just fill them with a 4$ bottle of urethane... or do what lihtan (I think?) did with his solid bushing mod

You are thinking of a different bushing.

I was thinking of a different bushing too. But you still should make them to sell. People would buy them.

Yes, you should make them. BTW it's so sad to see your cars have soo much rust back there. Should do like here and outlaw salt/deicer in the winter. Here they use a bio chem thats safe for the "Salmon". :lol: 8)
