So, I've been told that there's an issue with my linkage. I've seen a few tutorials on youtube for different cars and such, and understand (vaguely) what to do, however, I've only seen ghetto fixes for it.
Is there any fixes you guys have for it? And a tutorial that gives me the general idea of where I look? I'm still not understanding if it's the clutch-arm, or if it's the tranny.
Thank you much.

Most likely the shifter linkage rod bushings connecting the 2 rods from the shifter to the transmission are worn. Symptoms are the shift lever rattles or is loose and sloppy.

I should point out that it only really rattles when I engage my clutch before 1.5k RPM and after 3.0k RPM.
I'd honestly thought it was my exhaust manifold shaking at first, but I was told it's the "clutch arm"
