So have you heard of these silly HKS Shifter Return springs that supposedly cost $50+? Well for $0.30 at your local hardware store you can achieve this for a fraction of the cost. The theory behind these springs is to make your loosey goosey 240SX shifter feel more precise. This mod in addition to a new plastic shifter bushing can greatly improve shift feel.

Tools needed:
27MM wrench
OR
Adjustable wrench

Parts needed:
2 compression springs


1.The compression springs can be found at your local hardware store. I tried Lowes/Home Depot with not much luck but you could start there. The dimension of the spring you are trying to match is ~1.1" in length and 0.4" in outer diameter. You don't have to be exact but get close. As far as spring rate goes, buy a few different ones so you can experiment. I ended up with ones that I just barely couldn't compress completely with my fingers.

2. Next, jack your car up and get under there. For the tutorial I did this on a spare transmission I had lying around but trust me, you can do this without removing any part besides the spring caps. The spring caps are the large bolt found in the top center of the image below.

3. Remove the caps and pictured below will come out. Transmission fluid will not pour out of the holes.

It's as easy as that. Install your new shifter spring, tighten them down and enjoy!

Nice, need to do this for my SR transmission before it goes back on the car.

I knew that you could do this on the Nissan trannys, but i never bothered to check and see if i can do something similar on my R154. Thanks for the reminder!
