    Unfortunately I'm more broke than I thought haha had to scrap the idea of ordering the crossmembers, just getting the other three bushing sets for now, and then I'll install those plus my rear Kartboy at the same time.

    I'll get the crossmembers/mount next spring perhaps when I got some spare change, parents might kill me if they find another package coming to the door... Not sure if I'll live long enough to install the bushings

    Hey just wondering as well, was thinking of installing my Kartboy Rear Shifter bushing later when I get home from work, since I have the other bushings (linkage, pivot and front) already ordered, should I just wait to do all of them at once?? Or is it not that big of a pain in the ass to do just the one that I have now?

    I would recommend doing them all at once. Its not too big of a pain, but doing them at once saves you from removing and installing several components again and again.

    Hey, just wonderin if, since I had the dealer install the SPT short throw system, which includes upgraded linkage bushings, is it worth installing the new TiC linkage bushings?? All of my bushings should arrive today/install tonight so just wondering? Thanks guys

    hey guys im new to this forum, but have been lurking for a few days trying to find what im looking for. ive foun threads on transmission issues with older 5spd wrx's but im looking to buy one a new 2012 wrx hacth and was wondering if the new wrx's experience the same shifting issues as the older ones ie. lockout/grinding of 1st and 2nd. is the main issues just the sloppy feel of the shifter? ive gone to test drive one already and i didnt really mind the shifter. could be a little better with throw length, shifter stiffness but other than that it was very fun to drive. so once again my question is, do the new 2011+ wrx's experience grinding/lockout/destruction of the transmission like the older wrx's or are the transmissions pretty solid?
