Default Short Shifter install - SLOP for days

Just received and installed my Torque Solutions short shifter and bushings (all) for my 2013 STI. Actually, I did not install it but brought it to a local shop and had him install it. The pin scared me

Anyways, so install goes smooth. Checks his work as he goes along, we have a great chat, etc.

Final part, put the old pivot bushing in the new short shifter, and the bastard is WAY too small. So small that it is basically barely floating in there. Obviously this has lead to so much slop it is crazy.

Check out this vid:


Almost exactly what mine looks like right now, but I believe I have even a bit more slop than that. Driving is a nightmare. It feels like the damn shifter is going to rattle itself loose. It is loud, annoying, and almost a bit scary (especially if that bolt decides to back it out). I just ordered two sets of new aftermarket pivot bolts to be safe, and plan on putting them in as soon as I get them.

Anyone else run into this? Did I just forget to order these extra bushings (which I find nowhere recommended) or did I get screwed out of a set?

Be warned future buyers!

All our shifters for the past number of years. include the TIC center pivot bushings. I'm not sure why the video you have posted does not have them installed. Not sure if the TIC bushings would fit in the TS knockoff shifter. GL
Email clint and see if they fit.

Supposedly they come with pivot bushings. I guess I got unlucky?
