    '12 wrx short throw shifter

    I just ordered a premium red wrx 5 door with a short throw shifter. I was looking in an accessory pamphlet an it showed a bushing that makes for cleaner shifts. I'm wondering if it make a difference? Because I didn't order the bushing for the short throw shifter.

    Most people would suggest going with the Kartboy bushings.

    The bushing is a key element to making the STS worth the investment. See if you can get it added to the order and if not have the dealer install it on delivery. You can always look aftermarket for that as well, though I have no idea about compatibility.

    No it does not include bushings.If you are ordering from the dealer you should ask for front & rear shifter stay bushings.
