    fixed

    just wanted to say i just did this mod and its great, i love it. I have only had my x runner for a month now and the shift bushing was smashed bad from previous owner. i wasnt concerned about fixing it but this thread was awesome and made it way easier then i thought previously. i see this is old stuff and you guys been doing this a while, but again i really appreciate all the comments and work that went into making the fix so easy to follow.

    shifting now is back to butter smooth!

I'm going to Philippines march 11th and when I come back I know i'm going to be broke..... But when the time comes do you still have any URD's? cause im thinking of getting a urd ss when I do come around to getting one. Thanks

    I get URD SS from time to time, in on trade. It depends on timing, whether I have one when you are ready. I would shoot me a pm when your ready and I will tell you what I have in stock.

    Hey coupe. I didn't use hose clamps. I welded a bead up two sides an around the center to give it something to bite too will that be enought to hold it in place.

    That will be fine. I do not use hose clamps any more. I cut thin notches in the shaft. When I pour the epoxy, it goes into these notches and gets a bite.
