This is THE original Kartboy front shifter bushing. It is the gold standard by which all others are measured. If you drive a Subaru with the 5 speed tranny then you need this part. Trust me - you really do need it. This component replaces the stock shifter mount bushings in all Subaru vehicles using the 5 speed transmission. This includes Impreza RS, WRX, Outback Sport, Legacy, and Forester. While this product will not change the geometry of the shifting mechanism, it eliminates excessive play in the system for a more solid gearchange. This product requires jacking of the car and jackstands are mandatory. Can be installed in 30 min. The material is black, 95A durometer polyurethane. Made in USA.
