    shift linkage

    very difficult to get my 1982 rabbit into 5th gear. replaced bushings on shift linkage and now is even harder. all other gears go in fine. doesn't kick out of any gear.

    you probably need the main shift rod bushing

    If you got a 4speed kit instead of a 5 then that is your problem as the linkages are different.

    I highly recommend the short shifter kit, and weighted billet...
