    Disregard, then. I've always removed the lever before messing with F/R shifter stay bushings.

    Frankly that probably makes life a lot easier so there is less forcing to do to get the stay into the rear bushing.

    UPDATE:

    Removed the Cobb rear shifter bushing and put the OEM STP or Sti (whatever it actually is) back in. Still a squeak. So it wasn't the Rear bushing! I'm spent for now trying to figure it out. Not gonna bother putting the bushing back in because as a DD the front bushing is nice enough and I don't notice a huge huge difference without the rear. So it'll be FS soon!

    I guess my 99% sure its the rear mount was purely based on coincidence. While not 100% positive yet (because I still have to fix it) I think it may be coming from my previously "fixed" Totsubo license plate mount. That squeaked from day 1 and after grinding off some threads it was good. but now after driving for a few months the license plate has bent a little from the wind and moved the mounts. so its probably these damn mounts again.

    I hated the feel of the stock shifter and bushings.

    If you apply pressure to flex the bumper gently on either side of the license plate (or on the lower part of the bumper) you may be able to reproduce the squeak. If it squeaks, you have your answer.

    I had that squeak from the license plate mounts all through the winter, it was incredibly irritating. If you don't want to grind more threads, just back out the screw a half turn or full turn and that may solve it real quick.
