    Kartboy Rear Shifter Bushing

    I just installed a Kartboy short throw shifter and the front bushing. The rear bushing i had a problem with and i managed to mess up the bolt on the driver side of the rear bushing. I ended up putting the oem one back on with the stripped bolt on there . The other bolt is fine but that stripped bolt is at an angle. It is secure so i'm not worried about it falling out.
    can you guys give me some ideas of how to fix this? or am i sol
    this is for a 2013 wrx

    is just the bolt stripped out? cut it out and throw a new one in. or you might need to retap it

    hnestly, as long as it isnt making any noise, and the bushing is working as it should...i would leave it there too. but if you ever needed to replace the bushing that's all you're going to have to do. you'll still be able to get the bolt out, maybe still get it in again but if you can't thenyou'll have to tap it...but that's only if you need to replace the bushing again. you should be alright
