If somebody has CAPS i'm looking for the part number of the 2 bolts that bolt the shift linkage to the bracket on the tranny. They are 2 bolts that have a little washer on them that centers the bolt through the linkage to keep the linkage from moving. I tried the junkyard to no avail.

Just order them from JNZ Tuning. They have the solid bushing replacements.

Jose, are you talking about the bushing that hold the shifter to the floor? I think Rudi is talking about the bracket on the transmission itself.

Otherwise, please enlighten me as I though I had everything solid I could get, LOL!

No I am talking about the bushings that go between the transmission mount bracket and the cable mount assembly. There are actually 4 small rubber bushings that center the shifter cables on the transmission side mount. JNZ sells billet aluminum replacements. I also believe that Shep has them as well.

Joe and Glenn, the shift cable end bushings are not what Jose is talking about. Jose is talking about the 2 piece bracket that bolts to the transmission that holds the bracket. I have a custom made aluminum set on my car. Here are a few pictures of what Jose is talking about:

Here is the set that Shep sells at his site:

If you are replacing these, make sure you double check your shifter cable adjustments.

Another question...does anbody know where I can buy the spring that centers the actual shifter under the center consol? The spring is not doing a good job of holding the shifter in the center and the resistance is in the middle of the side to side throw instead of being resistant in nutral

Mine doesn't sit centered and feels a little "loose". I do need to replace the the bushing with metal as well, but i miss that "tight" feeling my shifter had when I first bought my car

You probably need to replace all the bushings. That spring rarely goes bad. I'm working on some brass bushings as replacements, but haven't gotten the stock yet to make them.

I can visually see about a quarter inch to an half inch of dead space before the spring is contacting the shifter.

That damn bracket is what causes my car to have a sloppy shift, no matter how much I tighten the bracket it still has play, its a weird rubber washer type deal that goes in there.

For that spring try setting it in the right place and cranking down that nut.

Also I was missing bushings in my shifter assembly, and it seems this is also a common problem. A guy on galantvr4 fabbed up some delran bushings, and it made a world of a difference. All 6 were 30 bucks!.

BTW This is not the pawn shop JOE...
