Customer Question
I am installing a Dorman...
I am installing a Dorman shifter repair kit on my 1990 Ford Ranger. When I took out the old bushings they had a metal spacer and a metal spring on the bottom one and on the top one. The kit did not come with these. Do I need to put them back in or do I just use the one that is included on the top bushing?

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey
