Check bushings and shift cable for loose shift handle

Had a loose handle issue four year ago on my '05 Blazer EXT. Discovered the lower bushing had broken apart, coughed up the $12 at AutoZone for the Dorman 14057 bushing set, and carefully reached to install the replacement. Had to use pliers to insure the fit.
Had the same loose handle issue last week, thought it may have been the same part. After reading on the forum and hearing from friend who just replaced his broken shift cable, bought a new shift cable from a Chevy dealer.
After seeing a few YouTube videos on replacing the shift cable, I removed the center console, only to discover the upper bushing had broken into several pieces. Installed the Dorman 14057 bushing, saw the end of the existing shift cable was still in decent shape, clicked it into the bushing, and reinstalled the console.
Been a week, and so far, so good. Vehicle has 170K miles. Keep the shift cable or return it? Did buy another 14057 bushing just in case and have it in the glove box.

For me, it would depend on the condition of the existing cable ( which you say is good ) Also the cost of said cable. Is there likely to be a rust problem? Quite likely, I would return the cable.
