I want to say it was plastic but I'm not sure .

I was thinking sometimes I go to shift and it's like it hit a wall. This is probably what is binding my shift cables. I think. That's how it feels anyways. It doesn't grind just stops when shifting fast..sometimes. I also have 160k mi on my car but the tranny (used of course), shift cables, and shift tower (broke it of course) are all new-ish (less than a year old). I should probably re adjust my shift cables on the tranny again and while i'm down there I should check out the mod you did and see if it's the same on our (which I think it is) .
I started out with nothing and I still have most of it left
