    Short Shifter Install Questions

    I've finally decided in order to not get power hungry that I will go with a STS and bushings for my first mod (other than some audio stuff I upgraded). I think I'll do the Kartboy because it's a little cheaper than the COBB and from all the threads I've read people seem satisfied with it. My question is while I'm doing that install is there any other bushings or anything that makes sense to replace/upgrade while I have the center console/boot off? I know nothing about working on cars really so I'm sorry if this is a stupid question. Thank you in advance for any advice.

    So if you decide to forego them I'd at least get these TiC 5MT Lever Pivot Bushings - WIDE .

    That is what I got. They had a GB going a couple of years ago. A lot of us jumped on it & got everything at a great discount with some other stuff that they reduced prices on for GB participants.

    FOR SURE ADD THESE LATER IF YOU CAN'T DO THEM NOW!! Absolutely ties the whole shifter feel together, feels like a nice bolt action on a highend gun once you do the STS, F/R bushings, Group-N trans mount, and the front cross member bushings (aka positive shift kit).

    YouTube vid on the install of the SS. Just the first one I saw when I searched YouTube......
