Default First repair

I've been having trouble shifting into reverse and everything felt loose so after watching numerous YouTube videos and reading what "search" pulled up here I checked my shifter cable bushings. Or lack thereof. I only checked the one in the engine cause it seemed easier to get to but plan on changing the one under the stick too. My part should be in today after work so tonight that will be Eleanor's first repair.


Sorry the pic is sideways, for some reason my pics load upside down or to the side.

The part wasn't in til today. I replaced the one in the engine and the stick feels so much better I decided to leave the one under the stick alone. Should I replace it anyway? I ordered the part from autozone and I believe it's for a Neon? $21.99.
