It took me a couple hours but i finally installed the Kartboy front and rear shifter bushings on my 13 WRX. The hardest part was threading the rear bolts.
1. After installing the front bushings, the stabilizer bar? still moves around within the bushings. Meaning, the circle that the two bushings go into on each side slides back and fourth a little between the front bushings...is this normal? It doesn't move too much, maybe 3-4mm.
2. How do you fit a torque wrench into the front bushings? Its way too tight for me to get one in there...so I only tightened it 2-3 turns.
I do love the new feel of my shifter however, I feel like sometimes when shifting in and out of 2nd gear I can hear that stabilizer bar move between the two front bushings.
