This is a great way to save some money by purchasing the short shifter and the bushings as a combo. Rest assured you will fully restore the shift feel with the new bushings, you will also improve the shift throw by up to 40%.  This combination includes the standard shifter bushing replacements, but also the rear bushing along with the short shifter. The Kartboy bushings are made out of a strong lasting urethane to replace your factory soft bushings.

Great product!!!

Kartboy short throw shifter is super easy to install and shifts are precise and noticeably shorter. Paired with the bushing kit you can't go wrong. Looks to be solid with no chance of ever getting weak as far as the way it is made. Great shifter especially for the money.

Short Shifter + Bushing Combo Review
subaruman92 1 month ago
Here is my honest no BS review of the short shifter and bushing combo. This is just my experience with the product and does not reflect the opinions of others. Take it as you will. I installed the shifter first, ran with it for a week, and then installed the bushings. My Car: 2011 Wrx Hatch Short Shifter: (+) Reduces length of throws by a legitimate 50% (+) Reduces overall length of shifter compared to stock by 1.5-2 inch (+) Reduces a lot of the "slop" in the shift; feels more direct and crisp - yes, this is just the shifter by itself (+) Easy install (videos on youtube) (-) No negatives so far. Bushing Combo: (+) Reduces the shifter "sway" when in a gear (doesn't wobble as much as stock) (+) The feeling of putting it into a gear is more crisp and positive - still has a notchy feeling, but more robust and less "spongy" (-) I felt that it wasn't as significant of an improvement as the shifter alone. (-) Felt like the bushings are more of a complementary upgrade to the shifter - rather than a worthwhile upgrade by themselves Overall: The shifter is a must- have if you are looking to upgrade your Rex. The bushings are a good compliment to the shifter and make for a great overall package. Overall: 5 stars due to significant improvement over stock and relative low cost

The feel and workability of this short shifter is excellent. Just installed mine along with a clutch swap and couldn't be happier! Just keep in mind there's a snap ring you need to remove preferably with snap ring pliers to make the change. Dykes can do it too, but it's a pain!

Great Combo
Spinnich 4 months ago
Installed on a 2012 WRX Sdn. , not a terrible install but some things you'll want and might not have are a C-Clip Pliers, a 12in. extension, universal adapter, and a fair amount of white lithium grease. No noticeable NHV increase like some people have said but this might be because I replaced the grease with new grease and made sure not to over-tighten the bolt that holds the shifting rod to the linkage.

Quick and Smooth
mroux18434 7 months ago
The short shifter cut the throws down the perfect amount and has made the 1st to 2nd high RPM shift very smooth. Install was straightforward with the only snag being the removal of the ring clip on the end joint of the stock shifter. Bushings were more difficult to install but helped to firm up the throws even more. Would recommend buying some automotive grease to apply when installing new short throw instead of using leftover grease from stock shifter.
