As the title reads, I have a 2016 WRX with an installed Perrin shift stop and brass bushing. I've recently started to notice the 2nd gear gate almost "locks" me out or "pushes" back against me when I try to go from 1st to 2nd. I remember when there was just a small bump or grind, but this requires forceable effort to get past the gate... an unnatural amount of force.
Not sure if this could have ANYTHING to do with either the shift stop or bushing. My thinking is no on the shift stop, since that mostly affects left/right slop and the bushing would affect the linkage. It's colder out, but I noticed it before winter as well.
Thanks for any insight.
