Default v3 sti short shifter and bushings

I want to tighten up my stock shifters play on my 1996 Version 3 sti.
Do Kartboy or another company make bushings for these trannys?
Also would it make much difference in throw if I got a new Kartboy short shift lever as well as I heard the sti's come with stock short throw shifters already.
Also where could this be purchased?
Thanks!

if you put the shifter into a gear (any gear) and there is play (left and right) then your problem is not going to be solved by any of those bushings or levers. you need to go OEM and get a new replacement knuckle. there are 2 types, it depends on what year/style shifter you have. example of what i'm talking about: http://www.rs25.com/forums/f105/t587...obble-fix.html

if thats NOT the problem, and you are just trying to fix the squishy-ness of the shift linkage in general, then you can go poly bushings (kartboy for example) and/or a short throw shifter. the kartboy shifter, for example, will not really give you any performance boost over any other brand, including ebay ones, except there are variants in geometry (ie. some are short post and not actually short throw, some are short throw but same stock post height, and some are both short throw and short post)
