yesterday i went to the import shop and bought a short shifter. the guy had 2 for my car: A 100 DC short shifter and a 30 (obx?) short shifter(it came in clear plastic). I bought the 30 dollar one cause i really didnt think there was too much of a difference. There was no problem taking the old shifter off. took the 12mm bolt off that held the bottom of the shifter with the rubber bushings, and them took off the 10mm nuts that held the other part of the (shift linkage?), im not really sure exactly what its called. I put the new shifter in, the major difference was that the short shifter came with metal washers that let the bearing in the shifter spin(the old shifter didnt have a bearing(why?). To make a long story short, the new short shifter didn't go in. Whenever i fastened the 12mm bolt, the stick wouldnt move how it should move, it felt too hard. I had to put the old shifter in... any ideas why my new shifter didnt fit?
