what's the easiest way to replace the lower ball bushing on the shift lever. i already did it, but i'm curious if there is an easier way.
i shortened my shifter a few years ago, and it spun while holding it with vise grips, and busted the two little ears off the bushing. so i've been dealing with a shifter that sping around for a few years. i finally riped into it to try and figure out the problem.
i've been told several different ways to replace this bushing
1 drop the exhaust to lower the box out,
2 drop the steering rack to allow the rod to drop low enough to get the lever up and out.
