Does it get rid of the play in the shifter when in neutral? Mine has half an inch of movement forward and back before I can feel it start to pull on the transmission cables.
the 4 shifter base bushings do this
also maybe the 3 cable bracket bushings
when i replaced my cable bracket bushings...there was at least 5/16s play (front-back) in the cable bracket. i was shocked.
swapped the rubber bushings and that bracket didn't budge a single mm.
IMO..the most important shifter bushing section upgrade, is the cable bracket

Neutral is solid. That said, I had previously upgraded the shifter bushings and shifter arm, and it felt pretty solid after that. If the long throws don't bother you, just upgrading the bushings should do the trick.
