Somebody should include a link in the begging of this thread to that topic. It will save them much time searching.

Maybe I missed it here but didn't see anyone mentioning lubing the nylon bushings with the supplied grease, the Hurst youtube video also doesn't mention it. I would think if the bushings were lubricated with the grease in the first place there wouldn't so many problems, that's what I plan to do when I do my install.

Maybe because it's nylon? I will one day pick up a metal bushing for it. Heard that it cures some headaches.

If it's petroleum based grease it could cause a problem, in any case I have aerospace grade pure silicone in a tube I can use.

Just use the brass bushings. Anything nylon will wear over time. How do I know? I went through two sets. The metal ones finally fixed the problem....the shifter getting loose over time. You won't realize it until one day someone mentions it or you get behind the wheel of someone else's who's shifter is new. The difference is unreal.

Brass bushings or GO HOME!

I know Apex had them on his site for a while. Then there were two other guys on here selling them. I think one of them was xapilot?? Check the FS section and Apex's site. See if you can find someone with them. I know there's a couple threads on them.

I had already done a search and came up empty, looks like the people who had some made no longer do. Phastek Performance has a youtube (
) showing them but it looks like they no longer carry them, they have the upgraded Hurst kit, which I'm not impressed with.

Well, we need to get someone moving on these. They are in demand....and it seems no one has them. Maybe I can get someone to make them and we can sell them in the C5 store.... Hrm....

I've seen a couple of different versions of the brass bushings, seems like the one shown in the Phastek Performance video would be the easies to make.

If you start to sell them let me know, thanks.

Just an FYI for those with 2013 SS (and possibly other models)
My stock shift knob was totally different than the Hurst instructions show. It is retained with a torx screw into the shifter and the only way to "pry it out" (as the directions suggest) will break the damn thing (which I did)

On examination (after it finally broke apart), I saw that the chrome collar on the boot should be twisted to unlock and slid down to expose the torx screw that once removed the knob comes right off.. Of course the supplied OEM shift lever that's supposed to be used with the OEM knob and boot doesn't work.. What a PITA.. I used long hemostats to pull the driver side of the boot back on!
Love this shifter, now it feels right!!

Yup, that would be the one, also shows the slick twisty cam lock boot retainer on the knob also!! Nice design actually, shame I didn't know that coming in!
Every video and instruction I found said to just "pull and twist the knob off and to pry if needed!! Without removing the screw it was a bit harder!!

great tips

Thanks for this thread, just installed one today in my '10 SS. the dust cover was a nightmare, took as long trying to get it as the whole rest of the job! drove down the road and it came off, thankfully didn't hurt it, read the thread and tips and got it perfect.

I highly recommend starting on passenger side and working your way around, that was the perfect tip, thanks!!!!

Now to contemplate my next purchase....

Wished I would have seen this earlier. Did my friend's 13 HotWheels SS today and after fighting forever, even trying two screwdrivers. I found the screw.....
