You'll feel the jolt, try to minimise it. At near highway speeds I give a brief stab of throttle to before popping back into drive, feel less jolt that way.
At freeway speeds I'm only running 1400-1700rpms anyways, so the jolt is almost imperceptable.

I'm more concerned with all the linkages from the column shift to the tranny iteself. The internal parts were intended to take tens (hundreds?) of thousands of shifts, the shift lever wasn't.
