Question Shifter Linkage Questions for 2004 WRX Sti

So, currently I have a shifter that has a lot of play when in gears and as I was doing some research into learning how to fix the issue. I noticed that there is a linkage that can be replaced on 5MTs. I tried to see if I could buy a new linkage for a 6MT since thats what my sti has and I think I found out that apparently the 6 speed linkage cannot be serviced. I wanted someone to help confirm that it cant be serviced and possibly guide me to other solutions that I can do to reduce the play.

For the 04 sti's do they require the whole assembly to be bought just to reduce the play?

I plan on buying the Kart boy bushings that I have listed below but, I am not sure how much the play will reduce with just that. Lookin for some crisp gear changes

Thanks!

Unless your shifter linkage is rusted out or damaged, you shouldn't need to replace it. You can replace the bushings in the kit you posted. That is a common starting point.

If your u-joint bushings are bad, you can replace those with these.

The shifter itself has pivot bushings that may be worn out too.

And here is the shifter linkage if you need it.

complete short shifter assembly is another option

Okay so update,

I bought the KB Bushings for front and rear shifter but I still have play (as I suspected) but the play in my shifter decreased a little. Still when I am in gear my shifter moves around as if it were in neutral. I took a video after I installed the bushings to see what may have been causing the play to still occur and it looks like its the linkage I was refering to before. It attaches to the fork within the transmission I believe.

Does anyone know where I can buy this bushing at (Not sure if its one of the links already posted)?
