DO NOT bolt the new piece in until the shift lever and new piece are mated together. You can not get the shift lever into the cradle if you bolt the new piece in first.

Anyways it went pretty smooth. Chris sent me a PDF email of the directions. The new part really cleaned the side to side slop of the factory part. There is still a little play but, it is easy to see it's coming thru the cables. Probably caused by some slop on the transmission connections. I'll have to take a look at that at some point. I'm happy overall, I just hope it stays this way for a while before I have to change the insert. It looks like it will be a complete teardown to change the insert.
Are there no instructions included with the part? Mine arrived yesterday, but I haven't opened the package yet. I currently have the shifter exposed because I just replaced cables. Do I need to remove the "cradle" from the car to install this side peice?
