any used a solid shifter bush on r32/33 gtr

Hi
Has anyone used one of these with the standard shifter?

S15 200sx / R32 / R33 GTR Solid shifter bushing

I replaced mine with a new plastic genuine bush but there is still a little play most notably up and down in the shaft and a tiny bit generally in all other directions.
Was hoping one of these would remove any excess play?

Thanks in advance for any help.

I've not used a solid shifter bushing, I have however fitted a new nissan oem bush, which has improved the feel, the rest of the slack in the mechanism looked like it was the larger round nylon bush that sits in the housing, could try shimming it maybe to see if it improves.

Hi
so quick report of what I noticed.
I double shimmed the knuckle with another circlip as suggested and the gear change is fantastic now, all the play has gone and a very positive feel. I would recommend this for sure.

Regarding the shifter bush there was a noticeable increase in vibrations through the shifter, although I am using a c's weighted shifter knob., whether this would change if you have a standard shifter I cannot be sure.

For me I put the plastic bush back in as although the solid shifter bush did remove a little play it was negligible but I would certainly put another circular clip in above the single one i.e. double shimming.

Bit of a thread revival!!

I dont suppose you remember the additional circlip size you added do you?

I havent had the chance to measure up what was needed, but was also hoping to do the job all in one go....

Thanks

Chris

An update on this, I went ahead and ordered a new circlip from Nissan, and it does fit in after a bit of a fiddle with the circlip pliers.

My first impressions are also very good as above, it feels a lot tighter than before, for a cheap little mod I’m quite happy with the results!

Where is the circlip located you speak of mate? I have the Nismo solid shifter and was thinking of doing this all in one hit.

Do also have the PN for the circlip form Nissan?

32204-V5004 for the circlip for the shifter itself

I use also a solid shifter feels a lot shorter than the stock shifter.

So just to clarify - double shim with the circlip that holds the shifter in, so use 32204-V5004.
