After shortening my shift distance by adding the Perrin Short Shifter Adapter it was time to finish everything off. I did this by simply adding the PERRIN shifter bushings. I was done and back on the road in about 20-30 minutes.
Needed Tools and equipment
1) Floor jack
2) Jack stands
3) 12mm socket and wrench
4) Pry bar
5) PERRIN Shifter bushings
Installing on my 2007 WRX
Step 1) Using a floor jack safely raise the vehicle onto jack stands. It is very important that you do not work on a vehicle only supported by a jack.
Step 2) Locate the factory bushings, remove the 12mm nut and large OEM washer from linkage to the transmission.
Step 2.5) Remove shifter linkage (with OEM bushings) from shifter pivot on transmission.
Step 2.6) You will now need a flat head screw driver or pry bar, carefully pry the OEM bushings out of the Shifter linkage.
Step 2.7) Once the factory bushings are removed you can insert the PERRIN shifter bushing on either side of shifter linkage and push shifter linkage back onto transmission.
Step 2.8) Install large OEM washer, Re-tighten the nut and bolt connecting the linkage to the transmission. (NOTE: There is limited working area but it’s 100% do able without having to remove anything. Please see instructions for STI's)
Step 3) Double check tightness of all the nuts and bolts, tighten to 13ft-lbs.
Step 4) Lower vehicle and proceed to take the car on a test drive.
