Shift linkage bushing?

I'm sorry to do this to you guys because I'm sure there is a thread floating around somewhere already but I promise you I have searched extensively.

Where the heck do I purchase replacement shift bushings? I can't find a part number or exact item description ANYWHERE. Every single thread I've found online (and there have been lots) just says to use this as an opportunity to put in a short shifter. I'd love to maybe someday but right now I just want to spend a few bucks on a piece of plastic and get my car working again

Is there a universal bushing people use? Are there brass bushing available for a bit more?

2002 Porsche Boxster
Little white plastic bushing that allows the shift lever to pivot left/right but locks it in place from moving up/down

Help this newbie!

I believe you could use the bushings from a short shift kit and leave your shifter in place. You can get the whole kit for around $50. It would not save you any time to put your existing shifter back in rather than the whole short shift kit.

Do you have a link handy? I'd love to check it out. Are you saying the entire kit, including the new short shifter is only about $50? For that price I'd gladly do the upgrade, but I've only seen stuff from $190-300 for those kits

My previous post is still under review from the mods so I can't edit it but I found a short shift kit on ebay for $49! Link to eBay item

From what I saw online, people are pleased with these knockoff shifters. Hopefully I picked the right one? Should be here by next Tuesday so the car will have to sit still until then. Can't wait to try out the upgrade!
