*Update: Due to rapidly rising material costs, our supplier is no longer including grease with these bushings. A high end bearing grease, such as Mobile 1 Synthetic or Lucas Red N' Tacky, can be used to improve bushing life but is not required. Please give us a call if you have any questions.

This kit provides the optimal solution for those who want to upgrade their shifter bushings and need a new boot or simply need to replace their bushings. Read on below for more details about the Solid Pin Bushings.

Original plastic Shifter Pin Bushings are known for wearing out and causing sloppy shifter movement. Similar to solid bushings that Nissan Competition discontinued a long time ago, these solid Shifter Pin bushings are the answer. They are made of self-lubricating 932 Bearing Bronze. Once installed, the firm feel of your shifter will pleasantly surprise you. While Self-Lubricating Bronze can be used "dry", it is even more amazing with good quality grease (no longer included*). With a high end bearing grease, it is likely that these bushings will far outlast your Z. Manufactured in the USA.

Application Note:
These are for original 72-81 Non-Turbo manual transmission shift levers*, or our Short Throw Shifter kits. If your transmission was modified from original and are uncertain, or you have a different shifter kit, please give us a call.

*Original Transmission Lever Type:
These bushings will only fit in "B-Style" transmission shift levers. B-Style transmissions have a horizontal pin that holds the lever in place and uses a pair of nylon bushings (which this kit replaces). If your transmission uses vertically mounted rubber bushings, this kit will not work.

If you painted or powdercoated your shift lever, that coating may need to be removed from the pin area, as these bushings are a very precise fit. Ensure that your lever is completely free of any rust or debris prior to installation. Please call if you have any questions.
