My t-case has been without the bushing since I bought the jeep but its never been an issue. The lever side on the other hand lost its bushing and then popped off causing me to be stuck in 4 low. I found that you can actually remove the torx bolt on the side of the center console near the shift lever and then pull the side of the console out a bit and get at the cable. I did that a few times before I replaced the bushing with a new one from the dealership.
I'm going to go the e-clip route on the t-case though and then tackle the lever side once it fails me again.
