    The seat in my 92 was literally in pieces, at least the parts that were still in place. The rest of it is still somewhere in the trans. The bushing wasn't bad, but I replaced it anyways since I had it out. If anything it's piece of mind against the rubber one falling apart and into the trans.

    A few others sell them, but they get them from marlin. I think yotamasters and a few others re sell them

    My rubber seat was in fine condition as was the socket.

    When I would be in 5th gear, and only 5th gear, and on the throttle the shifter would be dancing quite a bit.

    I read that changing out both the seat and socket makes a difference.

    For me it did not. It still dances.

    As for shifting, like I said, I think it made a minimal difference but that may just be in my head.

    If you have a worn/disintegrated seat or socket bushing it won't help though since it tee uses the stock ones. It'll shorten the throw, might tighten it up some, but the new delrin seat and socket would really tighten it up...giggitty

    Damn I didn't realize how cheap they were. That's a nice upgrade for $110.

    That along with a new bushing = race truck

    I love my URD, aside from suspension it has done more for the feel of my truck than anything else

    I'm sad too :(

    Haha. Moving on to bigger and better things. The 82 is now the wheeler and I'm planning on getting a nice 4 door diesel for a tow rig/dd.
