Default This Just IN! More STi Shifter Bushings!

Thanks to everyone who purchased our first run. They went out WAY faster than we had ever hoped, but that left us with our pants down! DOH!
We received our latest shipment of shifter bushings today and turned the order page back on.

Order AWAY!

Tom,
Would these be a benefit on the factory STi (6MT) short shifter?

Just place my order. Is there a definitive answer on the best (easiest) way to install these on the STI when only doing the bushings?

wrx_fun.

Look at the install thread.

http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show...hreadid=521427

Use steps 1, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 11. You might be able to skip steps 4 and possibly 5 also if you're willing to deal with the fustration of having that stuff in the way. But doing them will probably make your install less of a PITA. After step 7 you should be able to get at the bushigns. Do step 11 and then reverse what you just did for reassembly.

These things are great. I would install these and see how you like them before plopping $$ down on a short shifter. We don't have that crappy WRX one in STIs. These along with the tranny mount feel great.

installed these bushings this weekend. i had the bushings in my 5mt wrx also but the 6mt bushings make more of a difference.

about half of the side to side slop is gone. the shifter has a much more solid feel when shifting. worth every penny!!!!

Do you guyds amke anything to remove the side to side slop/play in the stock STI stick? It looks like the top bushing is the one that is allowing this to happen. I'd order three right now if you have them.

Also where can I see a pic of the STI lever? Does it do anything for the overall height of the unit?
