Post How do I fix a RS shifter into 95 L?

Seen a couple of dead posts about fixing a RS shifter to earlier L models. Not much said there. Hopefully someone can guide me on what I need in order to install a RS shifter into my 95 L.

And is the RS shifter shorter than my stock shifter? I find that when i handle my gear lower on the shaft, the gear box isn't as grouchy.

I will tell you by next weekend, My GF just got a 98 L coupe, Im giving her my old RS shifter if it is any different. If they are interchangeable, all you have to do is follow the directions in the MODs section to swap one in for the other. It took me 15 minutes to swap standard RS for COBB short shift.....real easy.

Thumbs up

I Don't know if it means anything, but I put a MY00 RS shifter in my '97 Legacy Outback a few weeks ago. I suspect that the basic linkage is the same on all relatively new Subies...

The linkages changed in 97.

Here's an old post:

I ended up having to replace the complete linkage with an RS one. What a PITA. Let me just say that you are not going to want to do that. I would go for the Graham Goode one, it'll probably run about $150.
