If it's the gold one from the Subaru short throw kit, it won't work with your linkage (well, it might, but not without some additional work) - the part where you bolt to the linkage is smaller than what you will find in the WRX (it is the same size as in the GC8) - not sure if you can transfer your bushings over or not - maybe with a bunch of washers as spacers, you could get it to work well...

Yep you can't install just the lever from the STi setup on a stock WRX linkage, it won't fit. You either need to change the whole linkage, or get a short throw lever made for the WRX such as the Kartboy.
So for now don't waste your time trying to install a part that doesn't work, get the right thing first.

I have a cobb double adjustable with the STi linkage on mine. I know what you guys are talking about though the STI linkage is skinnier than the stck wrx linkage. I had a special fabrication done to the linkage to get my Cobb shifter to work. I believe I am one of the few on here if not the only one that has it done.
