    Tranny or Mount

    Well the last few days or so I've noticed on my 2012 WRX Stage 2 that normal shifting between 3rd gear and 4th gear has become tough, like itís no where near smooth. I did have a front end accident in February (cosmetic damage) got the car back earlier this month and noticed only with the front bumper facing down on an incline the clutch vibrates and brake pedal does as well. This happens intermittently. Today I drove 15 mins to a friends house and since the car was still cold it hard shifted from 3rd to 4th gear and then to 5th. It has never done that before. I have changed my fluid but that was a month before the accident and had no issues at all. After getting to my destination off the expressway it shifted perfect, like normal. It power overs fine and down shifts accordingly, so I'm not thinking itís the clutch. Although, I have 44k miles but those are all highway. Could this be a sign of a broken engine mount? It does clunk around a lot when shifting.

    Do you have OEM shifter bushings? If so, I'd change those and go from there.
