I have heard that the truck shift bushings don't fit really good, and may need modified to work. haven't done enough research to be able to tell either way. I know that g.m. wouldn't have any reason to use different shift bushings on the car, truck , and van.

Check with member Macsdoghouse over at VCVC, he has a limited supply of genuine NOS GM front and rear bushings. The correct front are actually split top and bottom halves like top hats that you put in from each side of the lever, makes it easy so you are not trying to force a grommet through the hole with the shifter up there in place. The rear are like large grommets, important thing there is the thin washers on each side to keep them from getting chewed up. They are called thrust washers and are like 0.031 thick, when you take off the E-clip, see if they are there on both sides of the bushing, they help keep the rod from twisting when you shift. Again, check with Mac, he is very generous with the price if he still has them, sent me a set just a few months ago. You can also make fronts from any bronze or nylon bushings that you turn down to fit, I used them until I got the correct ones, no difference in the feel or performance, same for the backs, just find a grommet that fits, grommets are a little softer but are so cheap you can replace them yearly if they wear out....
