    '15 WRX Shift Stop/Shift Bushings

    Okay so I need some help on this one. I am looking at the different options available for cleaning up some slop. Now, can anyone tell me the difference between the Perrin shifter bushing/STI shifter bushing? It almost looks to me like the STI bushing is a shift stop? Dont know tho.

    The first one is the brass shifter bushing. Definitely get that.
    It will cut a lot of slop out. Because it's solid.
    The second is the rear shifter bushing.
    I had the SPT bushing and I hated it.
    Ended up going Kartboy, but they are not available for the 15, yet.
    I would keep an eye out for different kits, you want to swap both at the same time.

    Are you saying I shouldn't install the perrin brass bushing until perrin or someone else comes out with a rear bushing for the '15 WRX so that they can be done at the same time? because I have not seen any available as of now and I just purchased the brass bushing

    I'm pretty new to the WRX. I've got a 2015 with about 10k miles on it. I'm not aware of an aftermarket rear shifter bushing. I have the Perrin brass bushing, Perrin shift stop, and the aluminum Beatrush pitch stop mount installed. All together less than $200. I've got essentially no slop left. I'm sure engine and transmission mounts would firm it up some more, but I think it would be more noticeable in the way the transmission engages when releasing the clutch than in the shifter itself. There is literally no play in gears 1, 2, 5, & 6. The play in gears 3 & 4 is only noticeable if you purposely try to wiggle the stick while in gear.

    I'd say do the bushing and the shifter stop first, and see how you like it. The pitch stop mount increases the engine noise in the cabin significantly. It's most noticeable when starting the car and when accelerating above 3500 rpm or so. I can hear the engine on acceleration over my stereo (Kenwood head with 2 x 12 subs) with it turned up pretty loud.

    I know the website says that the sti bushing fits, but I'm not so sure it is correct. I'm pretty sure the linkage is different on the 2015 than it was on previous years. My suspicion is that the STI bushing you linked to probably only fits 2014 and older WRX but will fit the 2015 STI since it is essentially unchanged from previous years.
