I noticed that even fully tightened down, my shifter has a little side to side play on the bushing. Mine's a 2008.
Looking at the OEM partsfinder, and also in these pics, the 2009 and up have "wave" washer instead of just a flat washer like mine has. I think this would take up the extra play and rattle mine has.

So has anyone retrofitted an older shifter with the newer washers?

Also, I only have a single washer behind the nut side. Your's looks like it has both a flat washer AND the wave washer. Where does the wave washer go. Between the nut/bushing, the bushing/floorboard mount, or the bolt head/floorboard mount? EDIT: OK, I see that wave washer has to be beside the bushing to do any good, but which side?
