    they help with reducing the deflecting in the shifter base while shifting

    the stock bushings are rubber and allow a comfortable shift experience but in result they allow deflection and/or the shifter to lean or "bend" slightly to soak up the shift cable and gear movement inside the transmission

    with these you'll get more feedback from the transmission through the stick and a more positive shift fealing

    for 20$ its probably a quick 15min job that coupled with shift cable bushings will make the shift more positive, instead of "da dunk" into each gear you'll get "dunk"

    couple those 2 items with a short shifter and you'll be able to bang gears easy and shouldnt miss any shifts no matter how fast you shift

    I will be making the stiffer bushings for the ends of the shifter cables VERY soon. Design will be finalized this weekend most likely. These 2 things together will help the "feel" a lot.
