This is a discussion on Short Throw Shifters -- SPT, Cobb, Kartboy? within the Transmission & AWD forums, part of the Tech & Modifying & General Repairs category; Those crossmember bushings, are they the same as the Whiteline Positive Shift Kit bushings? They look identical...

    This is what the website says

    "This is the WIDE version. It will fit the shifter if you have the wide pivot point found on the stock shifter. If you have a 97-01 RS or the SPT shortshifter you want the narrow version. If in doubt please ask us!! If you do not know which version you need then email us before ordering.ATTENTION 2008 STI OWNERS!!!!! If you are going to continue to use the STOCK lever then then is the version you need!!! This is due to some lever changes Subaru made for the 2008"

    They are the same thing

    thanks for the heads up Tony! Just to clarify though, in terms of those pivot bushings, WC Lathe Werks states the following:

    1997-2001 Subaru Impreza 5-Speed:

    Choose the "TiC 5MT Narrow Shifter Pivot Bushings" [TiC_5MT_Pivot_N]


    2002-2007 Subaru Impreza 5-Speed with the factory short shifter upgrade (the shift lever is gold color and thin):

    Choose the "TiC 5MT Narrow Shifter Pivot Bushings" [TiC_5MT_Pivot_N]



    2002+ Subaru Impreza 5-Speed with a stock shifter or Kartboy shifter

    Choose the "TiC 5MT Wide Shifter Pivot Bushings" [TiC_5MT_Pivot_W]


    ALL 2008+ Subaru Impreza 5-Speed with a stock shifter or factory short shifter

    Choose the "TiC 5MT Wide Shifter Pivot Bushings" [TiC_5MT_Pivot_W]


    The following picture comes straight from the Subaru website under accessories:

    From that picture, and the "gold" looking lever, it would lead me to believe that I would indeed need the narrow set of bushings, I'm just wondering if the second bolded statement above is what I should be going by or am I just being foolish? haha thanks again

    Since both websites say that you should get the wide bushings for the all 08+ factory short throws,thats what I'd go with.But to be sure email or call them.

    Ok, I think I'll do that, thanks for the advice tony, really appreciate it, and thanks to all you other guys as well! I'll let you guys know what TiC tells me to hopefully clarify any future confusion for other potential buyers.

    Contradiction = definitely call. However, you know my opinion on these. I'd say try the shifter stay bushings ONLY first, and see if that does it for you. They're not THAT hard to install and tighten things up enough for most DDs.

    Yeah, just emailed the guys at TiC, hopefully theyll get back to me by tomorrow. Well I just figured that if I were ordering the Front stay bushing and the Linkage bushings (just received my custom shift knob today along with the Rear Shifter Stay Bushing) I may as well order the Pivot Bushings to save on being nailed with double shipping costs and what not. Do you honestly think it will make that much of a difference to the point it would be TOO precise or firm for a DD?? I just really want the sloppiness of the stock bushings to be gone - I want my shifts to feel very precise. Does anyone have ALL of the bushings, the Front/Rear, the Linkage and the Pivot bushings in conjunction with the SPT Shifter??? If so I would GREATLY APPRECIATE your advice and insight on how the overall feel of the shifting has improved.

    I'm guessing you got the wrong lever. Contact Kartboy. Tom is a great guy and will work with you to resolve any issue.

    TiC is another great vendor.

    Do all the bushings. I have only found one person who didn't like the difference when they've gone through the gears on my car. The only question you should have is whether to get an aftermarket lever as well.

    Yeah decided to definitely get all the bushings, question though, if I were to get an aftermarket lever, would def be Cobb, would the same pivot bushings fit or would I have to get a different set??

    I used the one from the SPT in my Cobb, and it fit perfectly. So yep, same one.

    Just as an update for anyone whos following along in this thread, I called TiC today and they confirmed that it is indeed the WIDE Pivot shifter bushings for the 2008+ WRX's. They don't the specific bushing/model year list on their website so hopefully this clues up any confusion. Will be ordering the Kartboy front bushings, the TiC Pivot bushings, TiC linkage bushings, and the Whiteline Trans. Crossmember bushings tonight. I'll let you guys know how I find it when I have them installed.

    Appreciate all your insight and advice guys, thanks again!

    Yup. Just a quick jack of the transmission and four 14mm bolts
