Either lever is fine. Either company only does front/rear stay bushings, which leaves out the shift linkage and pivot bushings. Turn-in Concepts does a bundle with a Kartboy lever and all shifter bushings at a pretty good rate, so that would be my recommendation...Originally Posted by mcgrewcasey
I am not too worried about lever height, more so the throw and feel. I will take what you said into consideration. Like I said, the new factory sts is leaps and bounds better than the stock, and now you are telling me an aftermarket is leaps and bounds over the factory sts!
So research time. Prolly go Kartboy. Thanks again for your response.
I test drove a WRX before I bought my STI and there is a pretty big difference between the 5 speed and 6 speed, but I'm not sure the actual throw is any shorter. You will definitely do a lot more shifting with the STI.
