This is the Kartboy shifter bushing combination for the 5 speed found on most Subaru models. However be sure to check on your confirmed applications list to make sure this will work on your vehicle. 



This kit will eliminate any excessive play in your shifter mechanism due to tired, or worn out shifter bushings. With simple hand tools this kit can be installed on average in about 30 minutes. These bushings are 100% hand made in the U.S.A., and are made from high grade polyurethane to help restore and tighten your shifter feel.

Rear bushing impossible to install
Rexracer 28 days ago
The front bushing was hard to install. It wasn't the Kartboy part that was the problem it was getting out the OEM that was very difficult to pry out. BUT that was the easy part, The rear OEM bushing came out easily. Then putting in the Kartboy rear was impossible. I tried out putting in one screw then leveraging in the second but it was impossible to align. Then I read about heating up the bushing to get some stretch. Out came the heat gun and heated until the bushing was quite warmed up all the way through, still no luck. After 3 hours reaching into uncomfortable places over my head, I finally screamed the last obscenity and gave up. 3 min and the OEM went back in and I gave up. The front is nice to have in but.....

Front and rear bushings
lmccargar39370627 3 months ago
The product it self is of high quality much stiffer than the oem shifter bushings. And the end results and price/install effort is most definitely worth it. Shifts feel so much smoother! That being said the install is not as easy as some have stated, I had the car on jack stands which a lift would have made things 10x easier. I would highly recommend that you install the new rear shifter bushing before you try and do the front bushing. The front was a piece of cake compared to the rear. Try and line everything up just perfectly and hand tighten the 2 new bolts provided in the kit to hold the rear into place I had a particular hard time getting one bolt to lined up and start to thread , its a very tight space to work in and the rear bushing is significantly larger than the old one making it a bit difficult to squeeze in there.

Kartboy Shifter Bushing Combo
al.velgara181595 4 months ago
Huge improvement!!! My originals were so shot out it was causing first gear grinding when engaging. This combo pack solved that. It now feels so crisp yet smooth through out the gear changes. …and to compliment the shifter bushings, i installed the Perrin transmission mount and pitch stop mount, the same day i did these bushings ;)


Clearance Problems

I received these bushing in the Kartboy short shifter busing combo pack. The front bushings fit no problem but the rear would not 1) clear the driveshaft, and 2) fit the oem bushing mounts. A friend of mine replaced the same rear bushing on his 2000 impreza rs and it was the same problem. That being said, Rallysport's shipping and service is superb and I enjoy dealing with them.

Great.

I had the bushings installed by my local Subaru shop. Made the shifter feel stiffer when going in and out of each gear. Also increased gearbox noise.

  • AnswerQ: Fitment Question  mitchellkid 11 months ago

    I was trying to install the rear bushing and ran into an issue. When I lined the bolt holes up, I couldn't get the shifter linked up. And when I lined up the shifter, I couldn't get the bolt holes lined up. Am I just a dummy or is there a trick to it? I currently have the Kartboy short shifter installed.


    • A: We recommend lubricating the rear bushing so the linkage will be able to slide a little bit, and that should allow you to line both up at the same time. Also make sure the rear bushing is being installed so that the front of the bushing is nearly vertical (correct side up).

  • AnswerQ: Fitment on a 2013 WRX  MikeyG 1 year ago

    Will this fit my 2013 WRX hatch with stock STI short throw shifter? I do not want to get the kart boy short shifter so Im hoping these will fit the stock STI short shifter. Thanks!


    • A: These bushings will work with the stock shifter, factory short throw shifter and any aftermarket shifter that uses the stock shift bushings.

  • AnswerQ: Bolt Holes  DeviAnt985 1 year ago

    Has kartboy fixed the issue with the bolt holes not lining up withy the factory threads on the chassis?


    • A: The issue with the bolt holes not always lining up for the rear shifter bushing is an inconsistency from Subaru and there is not much that can be changed on the bushing to change the fitment. These bushings will fit any model in the Confirmed Applications list and you may need to use a pry bar or something similar to help align the bolt holes, although it is generally not necessary.
