Shifter Bracket Install
Got to my friend's garage bright and early this morning. Put her up on the lift and got to work. On a lift, it's very, very simple. Undo the bolts, yank the shifter extension down to knock the retaining clip loose, pull off bracket, then slowly reassembly on the shifter. Follow the instructions and you'll be fine. I was done in under 30mins from the time we pulled the car in until I left.
I cannot stress this enough: If you own a MT82, get a bracket. I absolutely love the thing, it makes it shift like a whole different car. It makes the shifter have a bit more mechanical feel at times popping into gear, but it's smoother and way more precise. It doesn't feel like a squishy banana at times. I haven't tried any full throttle runs yet, but I'm sure it won't disappoint.
On a side note, glad I got it on a lift. I think my pinion seal is leaking. I'm going to have to get an appointment at the dealership and get it looked at. Something is leaking and it's only wet from the front of the diff to the back, underneath.
