I ordered the parts on Saturday, had it by Wednesday and installed them on Friday. It took maybe half an hour from start to finish, including the time it took to put my car up on jack stands. I put a little smear of lithium grease on the back of my shifter assembly; it made sliding the bushing on quite easy. I was going to put the bushing in the metal bracket first, but it was so stiff I was not sure I could get it over the ridge at the back of the shifter. So I put the bushing on first and then worked the metal bracket up over it and it went on with no trouble at all. All in all, I am very satisfied with this product.

Energy Suspension makes parts in 2 colors. Red and Black.
How are these two colors different?
The only difference between the red and black parts is that most Black Energy Suspension parts are Graphite Impregnated. This serves to help self lubricate the bushings. The Red parts do not have this characteristic. Aside from the actual color and the lack of being Graphite Impregnated - the red parts are essentially the same as the black.
I thought that the RED parts were harder and more performance oriented?
This is a common misconception. The red parts have the same durometer (hardness) as the Black parts and differ only in their actual appearance (color) and the fact that they're NOT graphite impregnated like the Black parts.
Why do people buy the red parts when they're not Graphite Impregnated like the Black parts?
In the end this is really because some people simplylike the color Red more than Black.
I thought Energy Suspension Made parts in Yellow and Blue as well?
Unfortunately Energy Suspension stopped producing these colors a long time ago and they are no longer available on the market.
