    Short Throw Shifter slop

    I've had the COBB STS and front & rear bushings on my 2011 WRX for about 6 months now. I'm starting to notice that the shifter is not quite as crisp as it was when I first installed it. When in gear it has some wobble to it, and it feels like I have to really reach up and out to shift into 5th. Has this happened to anyone else?

    Probably something coming loose.

    I torqued everything down. I would like for this to be the problem as it is an easy fix. Guess I'll just have to jack it up and find out.

    I've read that the problem could also be the linkage bushings. Forgive my ignorance, but are these linkage bushings are different from the shifter bushings I have already installed correct?

    Yes

    Linkage bushings deal with side-to-side motion

    Thanks. I am also getting Turn In Performance pivot bushings to compliment this, but they are sold in two varieties - narrow and wide. I believe that the "Narrow" is for anyone with an after market STS. Can anyone confirm?

    Turn in Concepts, you mean?

    Narrow is for people with the OE STS

    I believe so. Contact them to verify, though.
