    I was recently told by my local shop that the shift linkage on a dohc is wider than the sohc. When I had my Skunk2 short shifter in with the sohc everything was fine. Now they tell me I can't use the Skunk2 with the changeover to dohc beacause it's wider and that I will need "spacers". Has anyone heard of this? Where do I get these mysterious, elusive SPACERS? Or what size should I look for?

    What I don't understand is that the Skunk2 short shifter for the sohc civic and the dohc integra have the same model #. They also told me that it should have come with these spacers. Of course it didn't though. I just want to use my short shifter again with the ES bushings. Can ne help me?

    the spacers arent mandatory all they do is protect the bearings all they are are washers about a 1mm thick
