    Kartboy Short shifter

    Hey i had a question that i couldn't find anywhere! I have an 03' wrx and am buying a Kartyboy short shifter and wondered if i should buy the package that comes with bushings. Do the OEM busings need to be replaced?

    Thanks

    Get both front and rear bushings. They are worth it, as they are the ones that make the shift so much nicer.

    Wait, so how many bushings are there, there's only 2 correct? And Ive read the subbiemod page for the install, but is it necessary to jack up the car and do it that way, or is there any way to just interchange them from the inside.

    thanks

    Yes, there's two different bushings: the front and the rear one.
    and you have to get under the car to replace them, it's really not that hard, one thing I do recomnend is that you have a flex joint for your ratchet, and it should be a breeeeeze
