Hey, just received my bargain for the month. I found a full set of AGX's off of Ebay for $266. That was shipped to my door. Thought it was a pretty good deal. Came with all the hardware/Decals/and instructions. Now I just have to find the time to install them with my GC's. Also, I need to fix my shifter problem. It moves quite a bit back and forth, even in gear. So I'm guessing its a bushing problem? Have one ordered. Any other suggestions?

BP.

my rex does that too..... ok you know the main part going to the tranny!!!!!! there is a bolt or a pin going through that...if you have a pin take that out and put a bolt and nut through it.... thats what i had to do and it only takes like 10 mins to do it..... then thats your problem fixed

that is how i did it atleast there might be better options out there but that is what i did and it worked sooooooo..... thats my advice

Great, thanks. I'll do that tomorrow. Is that something I need to do from the bottom? Or can I access it through the dust seal inside.

DO NOT do that.

I assume you are talking about the spring/bitch pin, and replacing it with a bolt? The point of the pin is that it's sprung and keeps tension on that connection, making it a zero-play joint. Replacing it with a bolt will only increase play in your shifter.

If you want to fix it... there are two things you may need to do. The easiest/cheaper thing you can do is order polyurethane bushings from Prothane or Energy Suspension, they are less than 20 bucks and take 30 mins or less to install. If you have serious side-to-side slop, it's probably the U-joint in the shift linkage. You can't replace it, but fortunately you can order it from Honda still for ~$50.

DO NOT USE A BOLT!

I did this on my old b16swap because I lost the pin. The bolt will come loose not matter how much tighten it. Then if the bolt falls out, you will drop your shifter rod to the ground and get stuck on the side of the road.

On another note, go to honda and get a new pin. I had a pin I had put in and removed a dozen times on my h22 swap and it fell out....in maryland! I was in 5th gear for about an hour, didnt even know it was gone until my trans had a hole in it and the exhaust was smoking from all the burning oil. I pulled it from 5th gear to down shift on an exit ramp and dropped the shifter. I believe since the pin was gone and the shifter piece in the trans wasnt being held tight thats what vibrated and broke the casing causing a broken piece to get caught in the differntial and punching a hole in the case.

The pin you're talking about is number 26 in the picture? And what bushings are replaced, I'm guessing numbers 16 and 18?

Umm to me it sounds more like a engine bushing issue. If you floor it and let go and the stick moves back and forth without your hand on it, the engine bushings are flexing too much. Inserts should be your main pick.

If you are in gear and you can use your hang to move the shifter around but it never moves out of gear, then it's the shifter bushings.

Doing both are cheap (under 50$ for both) and they take only hours to install both of them. I got my D series inserts for $30 and I was able to get a shifter bushing kit for my brother for 14$.
