Hello, I will need to replace my shift bushings on my 70xr7. Can anyone tell me if I need to take to a transmission shop or is it something a mediocre home mechanic can do? I know the bushings only cost a couple of bucks but not sure I can do it. thank you,

Just have to get underneath trans shifter and loosen nut then slide bushings into place, they should be slotted, should come with instructions when you buy them.

Eazy job just remove the 4 bolts holding the shift to the floor turn it over and a couple of spanners relase the bolt and fit new bush.Then go and have a beer a job well done There is also the bolt on the linkage under the car that needs to be removed for the shift to come out.:smoke:
