Really Cheap Shifter Bushings!!!!

I found this and I thought it might be a typo or something but I called them and they said the price is correct, instead of paying 30-40 bux for shifter bushings these are $6 plus shipping.

Is that a set of both the front and rear shifter bushings? The price is crazy low for the fronts alone, but it doesn't specify front or rear, so I was just wondering.

Anyways, I'm going to place an order for them as well. I'll be replacing my clutch and flywheel in a week or two, so I'll swap these for the stock ones while I'm at it. (Don't worry, I know the mantra: "Stock Tranny, Stock Clutch. I'm not "upgrading" the clutch, just replacing it since mine started slipping at heavy loads in 4th and 5th recently, and it's been getting more frequent.)

Well, I placed an order... the cheapest shipping option (UPS Ground) to PA was another $8.95. So the actual price is more around $15... which is still half the price of anything else I've seen. I'm still not sure whether it's a full set of front and rear bushings. If it is, then it's $45 cheaper than Kartboys full set, if not, then it's still $15 cheaper for the fronts.

Nose Nuggets: I'm not exactly sure how long it takes but everything I've read on the install is that it isn't hard and shouldn't take long at all. Probably between 20 minutes and an hour or so.

Once my set comes in, I'll let you know.

I ordered a set as well, the shipping was crazy, the lowest for me was 10 for ground. and if i wanted them overnight is was an extra 80 dollars.

yeh. Just so everyone realizes... the default shipping option that was selected when I ordered was overnight airmail express or something, which was about $65 for me. So... be sure to change the shipping option to UPS ground or something more reasonable.

I just got the package in the mail yesterday. It's a solid, single piece front bushing. I believe the OEM is a single piece as well, while Kartboy and Cusco use two pieces (I think to make the install a bit easier, but I'm not sure). I'll try to find time this weekend or next to switch in this sucker and let you know how it is.

If I can't get the solid bushing installed easily, anyone know if cutting the bushing into two pieces (like Kartboy's or Cusco's) would be a problem?
