Description

The Kartboy Short Shifter and Bushing Combo will restore the shifter feeling in your car due to mileage, or age. After a while the factory shifter bushings are known to become weak, creating excess shifter slop in both, side to side movement, and forward and backward movement.

The Kartboy bushings are made out of durable polyurethane that will surely tighten things up a bit. The short throw shifter itself will decrease the shifter throw by as much as 40%. 

Please note for you WRX owners, make sure this is the correct shifter for you. This will fit in the 2002-2007 Subaru WRX with the factory shifter assembly only. If your car has the upgraded SPT/STI short shifter package you will need to purchase the 2.5RS combo. The easiest way to tell this is by pulling down your factory shift boot, and looking at the color of the lever. If it is a gold zinc plated lever, then you have the STI option installed. If it is a dark gray, then it is the stock assembly.

I'm loving it like McDonalds ! only thing that was difficult was getting the screw for the rear bushing that's next to the shaft to get in. OMG most annoying thing ever. But i love it ! smooth like butter.

Wish I had done this as my first upgrade!

After 12 years, my shifter had major slop, mostly due to a bad linkage/union. (I could put the car in 1st and move the shifter to look like it was in 5th.) I opted to upgrade the bushings and shifter as well. The install was tough without a lift. Drop the downpipe and the transmission bracket for more room. There's also a hammer pin and a ring clip that can be a pain. After the install, the slop was gone, the shifts were crisp and decisive, and the throws were substantially shorter. The real magic is that the quicker gear change lets you match RPM's perfectly for much smoother daily shifts!

Is it that short?
Kartboy 2 years ago
The product is very easy to install. Everything got much tighter after I installed the new busings. But i could not feel any huge difference when changing gears, but now I can say that I have short shift at least.

Does what it promises.

Let me first say that shipping was very fast and the product came in its proper condition. Nothing missing. Installed these on a 2005 WRX wagon, and I was overall satisfied with the result. The throws were shorter (ive read that it's 40% shorter), and both the front and rear bushings did their job of really making those shifts crisp and enjoyable. I did, however, have much sloppiness left in the linkage itself- something this product could not fix. I will need to replace the entire shifter linkage if I want a completely tight feel. Once again, this product was not responsible for this issue. As far as installation is concerened: 3/5 difficulty (was my first mod on this car). I had to find a video on YouTube for guidance even though the instructions are on the Kartboy website. This was a matter of preference. I would highly recommend a flex socket wrench and regular crescent wrenches as well (12mm deep and shallow sockets, 10mm shallow). If you live in an area that uses salt in the winter, be sure to have some wd40 handy for those rusty bolts. That being said, the rear bushing bolts came our pretty easily, as well as the single bolt holding the front bushings together. Detaching the linkage from the gear box was a pain the butt, though! Once you pull the linkage out, it's straight forward. I actually managed to get the snap ring out with a pocket knife and put it back in with some effort. Wish I had some snap ring pliers, though.

  • Q: How do I know I'm ordering the right one?  Mohawk177 3 years ago

    Answer

    My 2007 wrx limited has the SPT/STI short shift package. How do I know I'm ordering the right package on here? There aren't any other combo packs on this site, and nothing that specifically says the 2.5rs combo.


    • A: This is a confirmed fitment for your 2007 WRX LImited. You would be swapping out the SPT parts, for the Kartboy short throw and bushings.
