Ok, theres the situation... I looked thouroughly at howtsuffworks.com and it told me that synchros eliminated th need for double clutching. So as I drove, before going from 3rd to 4th I double clutched(put the stick in neutral to rev match) and viola! No grind. BUT, i alos realize that my stick is loose in gear and in neutral, remarkably similar to the car mentioned above. My car also has 127k on it. im going to take it to my shop today to get an estimate, but I would rather not be ripped off, so how much would you guys think this should cost to fix, whether it be bushings or a synchro?
