post a pic of your install please. that sounds all wrong. Whatever happened i suspect will continue if you reinstall the old part but DO let us know how that goes

something went wrong in your install I think. The part locates the rear end tang in the same location and orientation.
Like you said simple install, could not be simpler. The only hard part is when working on the floor without a lift. As I said before, the orientation is correct.

The orientation is the same as the second to last picture from op, where the bushing mountain is on top and the bulge is facing the gearbox.

One thing we'd like you to check is the metal sleeve inserts in the bushing. Do they seem like they're longer than the bushing? If it's not that, maybe something wasn't tightened up?
I'll check the metal sleeves today, prior to installment I believe the sleeves were not longer than the bushing.

Interesting, first I have heard of this. I have one ready to install when my break in is over and modding begins. Definitely interested to hear how this turns out.

Hiya!
I'm currently doing the install. I've take out the OEM bushing and I'm about to install the PERRIN bushing.
One question. I undid the clamps that were holding the drive shaft, but when I undid them the driveshaft went down towards me about 4-5inches(it did not fall completely) and I heard a kind of vacuum sound. The shaft probably went out about 3-4 inches but I managed to catch it before it came out completely. Would there be any problem with that?(im a newbie)

Checked the sleeves and they are fine, everything is fine. I went down under to do an engine, trans, diff fluid change. After the fluid change the shifting felt a lot smoother, but still pretty notchy on 5th and 6th gear. Also, the noise level did go down, but it's still louder than stock.

The drive shaft connects to the gearbox and diff mechanically so that vacuum like noise shouldn't be because of that. Are you saying your shaft came out like detached? Ours was able to fall a few inches and sit on the exhaust

The shaft came out, probably a couple inches. The 'bent' part of the shaft went down about the same level as the exhaust, it didn't fall out though. I put it back in and finished the Perrin/Cusco install I just did, no CEL lights and no drips. I hope everything is A-OK.

It's pretty good mod. Shifts are real nice and smooth, less 'lurch'.

Installed it yesterday along with the whiteline insert, but didn't notice any real difference from stock as far as shifting goes...

I guess we are all sensitive to a different level. Both wife and I noted a post install improvement.

Installed mine last night. I found using a longer extension on the socket was best to tighten up the bolts on the shifter bushing.

You can move around the small shaft a little from the gearbox to help align the bushing as intially it was a little close to the top of the body of the car.
I also held the tail shaft with one hand so as I undid the bolt holding it to the body it didnt drop suddenly and possibly strip the thread.

They are not kidding when they say it is a tight fit to get the new one on but once again I did this on my garage floor with wheel stands etc.
I did invest in a $40 sled to lay on from super cheap. I have never had one before but was gold for this job.

I also bought two small rubber mats for my ramps to go on as my garage floor is painted and were consistantly slipping tring to get the car up the ramps. I knew I would be working on this car alot so I bought extra long ramps as this car is quite low as stock. However the ramps were still not long enough and had to put hard wood sleepers before the ramps to stop the car scraping on the front.

After the install I jumped in the car and moved the gears around to get a feel of what it was like. ...... Well I did think it was still a little cluncky and not really what I had hoped.
But in the morning when I drove it to work and soon as I shifted in second gear I new that this had done the job. In fact it feels completely different.
I think it is excellent compared to stock. Much smoother through the gears, really nice you will like it.

6th gear did seem a bit tighter to me and did have to guide it a little more than before but still smooth just a little stiffer than the rest of the gears.

Hope this helps anyone else deciding to put this in. I think its well worth the effort and excellent mod. Well done Perrin.

I really like it. I had a friend complement the car on how good the gear changes felt. Job done.

Just installed mine earlier along with the Perrin Transmission Support Mount. Definitely less slop in the shifter and improved feel. Just another satisfied customer.
