Shift cables were closer to $70 each at Classic in Ohio, FYI. And just a warning to anyone ordering new ones in the 03-04 year range: be very careful which part you order. I thought I was very careful and still
ended up with the wrong part.
Notice that there is an "A" shift box and a "B" shift box. I ordered the cables associated with the "B" box, because that's the box I have, and still the cable didn't fit. Since I was replacing these due to broken bushings at the trans and wanted a running car, I ended up pressing the bushing out of the new cable (18mm socket and a rubber mallet over the 36mm oil filter socket worked nicely, though did damage the shaft of the cable I wasn't going to be able to use), dremeling out what was left of the old bushing in the old cable, pushing in the new bushing and moving on with life.
Huge PITA, but I wasn't prepared to wait another week and a half for parts without a running car.
