So I installed a set of ES shift bushings and stabilizer bushing. Also installed a megan racing short shifter. Everything went in smooth but it's hard to get into gear. It goes in gear but it takes a little force.

Is this normal? Like do they need some time to break in? They're the red ones

I did losten the ones right behind the shifter on the stabilizer bar and that didn't do anything.

I do recall that there was a gap between the fork on the linkage and the ball of the shifter. I tightened in down enough to take away the gap so maybe that.

I've also never driven a car with the Polly bushings or short shift so I'm not exactly sure what it's supposed to feel like either

It was the bolt that connects the linkage to the shifter. had it way to tight. Loosened it up and now it's perfect
Sorry for being vague, but you did figure it out.

How I was taught, how I teach, you'll thank me in 5-10-20 years.

Thanks. It made me think about what the purpose of each part was and then it all made sense and was easy to figure out.
