Is there a noticable difference in the way the shifter feels after you install them? Is there excesive vibration as your driving? How much did you pay for them and where did you get them? Finally, does anyone know where I can get the polyurethane bushings online? I don´t want to spend that much money. One more thing, were they easy to install? Thanx ahead.

yes there is a noticable difference in how it shifts, Much more solid felling, It does deffently take the rubbery feel out of shifing. You can goto www.escortfocus.com they have the bronze oil bushings, and also the polyurethane bushings also. I paid like 37.00 which included Shipping for the bushings. Installation was simple, needed one socket and wratchet took about 10 min. Check out the link for install pics.

escortfocus.com says that the poly bushings only fit 97 and up escorts. I have a 91. Will these work? If not where else could I find the poly bushings online? Do you have to get under the car to do this or can you do it from the inside by taking the shifter out. I only ask because its so dang cold out and I really don´t have a suitable place to jack up the car. Thanx again.

Well I´ve never lost a race to a VTEC, I dont like honduhs much so I made the name VTEC_eater_haha which means i eat VTECs ;) get it now?? and the 94egtdap is my 94 egt and the initials of my name thats all.

I was afraid of that. Oh well. You did fail to answer my question about the years on the escortfocus website or if there were any other sites where I could find the poly bushings. Any 1 know?

Well using my investigative skills I can see that he has a 1994, or 2nd gen EGT, much like your 91...so since he got his bushing to fit I would suspect that if you got them they´d fit as well. the same 5 speed manual transmission that is in the 2nd gen EGTs were used up to 1997. So.... if it fits the 97 model year it would fit yours as well. ;-)

HE used the bronze oil bushings. On the website the bronze oil bushings are for 91-something escorts. The POLYURETHANE bushings on the site say they are for 97 and up as well as the Zx2. I want the poly bushings because I´m practically broke and can´t afford the bronze oil ones. So will they fit?

Yes it does help the side to side while in gear feel lol ;) I hate that too when teh car is in 1st and seems kinda like in neutral LOL. The bushings make a pretty big difference I think, Much tighter feel and not so cheap and rubbery factory feel.

Ok I e-mailed Rob and yes he does have them. They are just not on the website. I will be ordering them shortly. When I get them and install them I will let everyone know what I think. I´m getting the poly bushings because the bronze oil bushings are too expensive. The poly bushings are only going to cost $8.99 plus shipping and handling in case anyone is interested.
