Has anybody replaced theirs with a solid one? Im on about the bush that is the universal joint at the end wherethe linkage bolts to the gearbox. Not sure about the pre facelift but on my facelift when i got it the bush was goosed. In 3rd was like neutral. I made a prefacelift linkage fit and used that for a while but i was pissed off with that as it wasnt quite right so i got a block of alloy machined at work to take the place of the bush. It was 10mm dia pins in the original bush so just poped them out and got steel ones at work. I only wish i did it sooner. The gear shift feels so much better. Its mechanical now instead of chocolate. It slots into gear and feels like i think it should. I seen on the net a company in america makes a kit to replace the bush but never heard of anybody over here doing it.
