    FIRST I NEED TO ASK YOU A ? HOW MUCH LIFT AND DID YOU INSTALL AN EXT. ON THE SHIFTER ROD?
    IF YOU DID A MILD LIFT YOU CAN JUST ADJ. THE SHIFTER ROD ON THE SIDE OF THE TRANS. THEN AGAIN YOU MAY ONLY NEED TO ADJ. THE SHIFTER IND. STRING UNDER THE STEERING WHEEL

    I'AM NOT YELLING I JUST HATE THAT DAMM SHIFT BUTTON

    Check down by the trans where the rods connect there should be a bolt there that you can loosen and slide on the rod for adjustment. It might just need adjusted since the sag is gone from the worn mounts.

    Just look at where the tranny linkage rod attaches to the tranny. That is where the adjustment is. Loosen the bolt and then re-tighten after the rod slides up a little. If it was bent anywhere, it would have to be up at the top where it attaches at the column. Hope this makes sense. If not, let me know and I'll try to elaborate.

    If I understand you correctly, you forgot to unhook the linkage before you jacked up the body to change the bushings. I did the same thing and I still need to figure out what to do to fix it. I did the one inch body lift at the same time. For me park is reverse and I have to use the parking brake all the time. Maybe someone has fixed this problem and knows how to explain how to fix it to us. Detailed description of the parts in question would help.

    If you knew the truth, you too would be against marijuana prohibition!
