Best alternative is to pull the shifter tower and 1/2, 3/4 and reverse levers out of the car, and make the holes in the levers and shifter fit the steel bushings.
The levers and shifter levers are hardened, but careful "porting" with a carbide tool and rotary grinder will get you a lot better setup than any factory or aftermarket fix out there.
Hurst has two kits, just FYI, for both plastic and steel bushings, all fit replacement shifters, will work after porting the holes in the stockers.
Kit comes with 7 bushings and proper "G" clip retainers.
