TheKartboy Rear Shifter Bushing replaces the stock shifter mount bushing in most manual transmission Subaru vehicles, including theLegacy, Forester, and Impreza's of all models including the STi.
Just like other wear and tear items, your factory rear shifter bushing will become soft over time, creating a loose shifter feel and increased movement under all acceleration circumstances. The Kartboy unit eliminates this problem by tightening up any loose ends with their much stiffer design.
Material is Black 95A polyurethane.
This product will not change the geometry of the shifting mechanism or shorten it.
- Made from 95A Polyurethane
- Tighens shifter feel
