H-Brace? Shifter bushing?

Well I just put on the front and rear upper strut tower bars and wow what a difference. Tomorrow I put the H-Brace on just wondering if anyone had a picture of it installed and any tips, I haven't even looked to see if it will be difficult or not. Also if anyone knows anything about the shifter bushing I guess I mine as well do that while i'm under there pics and tips would help. Thanks

When the shifter bushings wear at the shift lever, the lever will buzz,
usually in second and fourth.

Replacement can be done without dropping the exhaust, but it room is tight.
You have to remove the bolt, disconnect the shift linkage, and turn the
lever 90 degrees so the bushings are facing front-to-back instead of side-
to-side. That way there's more room. New OEM kit is about $50.

The main problem is pushing the old bushing out of the sleeve. It's usually
stuck pretty good. It's been so long since I did mine that I can't remember
how I got it out.
