No this is not another post about a car that needs shifter bushings.
As you can see in the pictures below, I already upgraded my bushings.
I also got the Kartboy short shifter while I was doing everything
Now that I have all the new stuff installed, I will admit the shifts are more crisp and feels more solid. But my shifte still has this wobble. I can wiggle my shifter about 1 inch left or right (in gear or not, doesn't matter) and I can wiggle the shifter forward and back about half an inch (in gear or not, doesn't matter). This problem happened before the new bushings, I bought the new bushing in hopes to stop the wiggly shifter (lol... I used the word wiggly) but the problem persists. It just doesn't feel solid like I'd like it to. Is this a common thing? My WRX has the original transmission. 134k miles on the clock. Shifts well. New bushings helped, but still wiggles.
I went under my car and had someone wiggle the shifter for me while I inspect what is loose. The wiggle seems to be coming form here circled in red
I've searched Google for replacement bushings or fittings for this area of the shifter, but I can't seem to find them. I've never driven another WRX before, so I don't know whether or not this is normal. Is this something to worry about? Can / should I try to fix this?
All help is appreciated! Thanks in advanced!
