Its loose in neutral and in the rest of the gears. When its in gear you can kinda shake it left and right. feels a little loose. How can i fix this?

Its the set up of the shifter. Pull the boot off to see what I mean. Our shifters arent directly connected to the trans, they are connected by cables. I bet if you put it in 5th theres little "slop" at all.

I have solid shift bushings and I have the same "slop"

automatic or manual whatever. The assembly is just mounted to the exhaust/drive shaft hump. its just your bushings that make it loose like that. You can tighten some of the bolts in there to clean up some of the play. Now if we were talking about a car where the shifter is directly mounted into the transmission then you might have some problems.

I know bushing helped mine quite a bit. Yes, there's still 'slop' but it's normal
