i am looking to install a short shifter on my 08 wrx, i am wondering what a good brand, or even a specific short shifter that you bought or know is a very good one, and if i get an aftermarket short shifter do i need new bushings? thanks

Kartboy SS & bushings.Yes,you need the bushings.No use changing the shifter & leaving the stock bushings.

The SS reduces the throw but to improve shifter feel ,you need new bushings.

He means Kartboy Short Shifter. They only sell one model, but it is specific to the year, so match that and you'll be good. Also look at the double adjustable shifters if they make them for the newer WRXs. Rallysportdirect carries both the Kartboy, and the double adjustable brands.

I put the kartboy with bushings on mine. Easy to install, and makes shifting much easier. 5th is still a little farther than I would like, but it's a big improvement.
