Kartboy Shifter Bushing Combo ( Part Number: KB-003-5COMB)
WOW 5 months ago
COSubie95
Can't tell you how much these improve the shifter feel. Much tighter and precise compared to the OEM bushings and its easy to tell why. Install isn't terrible but isn't the easiest thing I've ever done.

Go Cheap and Get Cheap Results 6 months ago
ScoobieHatch2012
I learned my lesson by going a little cheaper and getting the Kartboy bushings. I did see the other reviews stating they had trouble aligning the rear bushing into position, but eventually got it to work. I didn't realize that they must have had to strip the threads in order to get it to work. After trying to install it over and over again, I finally positioned myself to have a good view of the alignment. The positioning of the holes were WAY off! Maybe I got an extra poorly manufactured unit, but there is NO way I'm going to force a bolt and cross thread/strip it into the body of the car. Even if it would have eventually worked, if it isn't working smoothly, I'm not installing it. However, as they should, the front bushings worked out well (for now). So if you REALLY want to go cheap, just go with the front bushings and re-grease the stock rear bushing. It made a slight difference with just the fronts, which is why I'm giving it two stars instead of one.

Shifter bushings 2 years ago
Xray
Installed the bushings to replace the OE rubber. Had the whole transmission out for other services so the swap was super easy. Huge change in shifter dynamics for the better all the gears feel right where they should be again with a solid notchiness that was missing. No short throw installed yet but after these I don't think I'll be in any rush to make that jump.

Solid addition to the Kartboy short shifter 2 years ago
Jesse
the front bushing was easy to install but the rear took me foreverrrrrr. I have big hands so it was hard for me to get to the rear shifter bushing. Advice: if one side of the rear bushing goes on easy and the other is hard, start with the hard side then move to the easier side - if that makes sense.. Performance for the price was on par. I would say the short throw shifter makes the biggest difference in shifting feel. These bushings add some "snappyness" to the equation.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

  • Q: Will this fit   benobrien5992 years ago

    Will this fit my 2004 Subaru Impreza GX hatchback
  • Q: Kartboy vs Perrin/Cobb  NuVision3 years ago

    I would like to know which of the three (Perrin, Cobb, Kartboy) bushings have the hardest material. Thanks.
  • Q: Fitment Question  mitchellkid4 years 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).

  • Q: Bolt Holes  DeviAnt9854 years ago

    Has kartboy fixed the issue with the bolt holes not lining up withy the factory threads on the chassis?
    • 0 of 0 people found the following answer helpful

      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.

  • Q: JDM Application  JDM RA5 years ago

    Would this fit a 97 STI? Or any GC series JDM Impreza for that matter?
    • 1 of 1 people found the following answer helpful

      A:  These bushings should fit almost any Subaru with a 5 speed transmission, but we cannot guarantee fitment on any vehicles not shown in the Confirmed Applications list.
