Features & Product Details

You are looking at the Kartboy Shifter Bushings which have been designed to replace the stock 5-speed bushings on 98-2008 models. These bushings will not change the geometry of the shifting mechanism, however, they will help eliminate excessive play in the system to provide a more solid gear change. These are made from black 95A durometer polyurethane materials to provide long-lasting performance.

Installation requires lifting the car and using jack stands for safety, of course, and installation takes around 30 minutes and is accessible from underneath the car.

Kartboy Bushings are handmade in the USA.

Fantastic Product! 4 years ago

A must have for any car! Installed this on my 2004 WRX and made the shift feel so much better! Make sure to get the rear bushing with this to get the best shift feel possible!

An Inexpensive Must 4 years ago
Castro
Paired with the rear shifter bushing, this combo is a must and it is even much more noticeable with a Group N transmission mount installed as well. Super crisp!

Great Improvement Over Stock 4 years ago
Bandaru
Bought this along with the Kartboy short shifter and rear bushing. Made shifting much tighter and I love the new feel of it. It was a bit of a pain to get the old bushing out, but putting these new ones in was a breeze. Would definitely recommend, especially in combination with Kartboy short shifter and rear bushing.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

  • Q: Fitment Question  ichambo3 years ago

    Will these fit my 2000 Outback Sport?
    • 0 of 1 people found the following answer helpful

      A:  We have not personally test fit these bushings on a 00 Outback Sport and we are unfortunately unable to guarantee fitment. They should fit most Subaru 5 speeds and in our experience a spacer/shim may be necessary on some vehicles that are not in the Confirmed Applications list.

  • Q: Will it fit '98 Forester S?  JimCarlsberg5 years ago

    I've been trying to find replacement front shifter bushings for my 1998 Subaru Forester S. The Kartboy rear shifter bushings will fit my car, but it says that these will not. Is that true? Or can I get these to work?

  • Q: Cobb Short shift compatablility  Milhouse15 years ago

    Can i use these bushings with my cobb short shifter?
  • Q: Side to side movement?  BoostBum6 years ago

    Will this bushing along with the rear bushing help with side to side movement while in gear or would that be the shifter linkage?
    • 1 of 2 people found the following answer helpful

      A:  These front shifter bushings will greatly reduce the side to side movement and will be a noticeable upgrade. The shifter linkage bushings will also help a bit, but these front bushings will be the most beneficial to reduce side to side movement.

  • Q: Compatible w/ STI short Throw?  raymondandersen13527378 years ago

    Can i use this bushing with the STI shorth throw shifter?
    • 1 of 2 people found the following answer helpful

      A:  You can use this bushing with any OEM or short shifter. The bushing is actually installed on the lower section of the shift linkage so the shifter you run doesn't have any affect on whether you can run this bushing or not.
