  1. Does the job

    By Doctor February 26, 2023

    My old rubber bushing was... old. I put this in when I was changing the plate to tighten things up, seems fine to me! Some people say there's more vibration but I haven't noticed. I have more rigid engine and trans mounts, so this is negligible to me. Did tighten things up a little, but not a huge difference unless your rubber is dead.

  2. Tighten it up

    By JB October 8, 2022

    I paired this with their shifter stop at the same time. Tightened up everything. Easy install. Shifts feel more positive. Worth the money. Would recommend. Perrin makes quality products. Add this to the list. Thanks again Subispeed! As always return customer

  3. Works

    By Randy June 24, 2022

    Works as described, install was a bit difficult on 2020 WRX. Had to drill inside to open up .001 and heat bushing for a super snug fit. Still recommend, but not easy install for everybody. Inside diameter about .001 too small out of box.

  4. Night and day difference

    By Shadowwolf1970 November 19, 2021

    Just installed the shifter linkage bushing on my 21 wrx and it is night and day difference.Shufts so nice and crisp now,and very nice spring action and super positive shifting.

  5. Does not fit

    By Justin October 31, 2021

    Tried to install this on my 2021 WRX since Perrin has it listed as comparable. For the life of me I can not get the brass bushing into the linkage ring. It simply does not fit. Every video I see the ring just pops right onto the bushing with little effort but god himself would not be able to get my bushing to fit inside that ring. I’ve followed every instruction to the letter and referenced several install videos including subispeeds and I’ve done exactly as instructed and it will not fit.

  9. New BUSHING wroth it

    By Joe September 12, 2021

    I saw the old ones when they gave me my old parts back and I have to say the quality on this part is far more then the OEM one. I know this will last a long time. Love the feel

  10. Great product

    By John September 1, 2021

    I did this on a set of Jack stands and it sure was a pain in the ass but if you put the bushing on first then slide the arm onto the bushing it makes the job a lot easier. Made my shifts feel a lot more crisp and clean and I think it’s worth it.

  11. no more grind!

    By Eric April 22, 2019

    I always had trouble going into 2nd if I'm flooring it. I would 60 percent of the time get it to grind going into 2nd gear. I got this bushing for another reason, not knowing it would fix my 2nd gear grind!!! that was great and now the shifter feels tighter and shifts better. people need to get this. it's real easy to install. thanks eric

  12. Easy install and definitely worth it!

    By Jason January 12, 2019

    The part of this that took the longest was jacking the car. Overall took 30 minutes and works awesome. Such a crisp shifter feel now. I love it! Instructions tell you to remove mount clip from the shift cable. You do not need to do this.


    By Tyler April 16, 2018

    Just installed mine in less than 30 minutes. Super easy to install, and very well worth the value. This paired with the Perrin Shifter Stop is a must. Changing gears has never been so easy and smooth.

  14. #1 upgrade

    By Josh February 5, 2018

    Just installed mine today and it took about 30min to install. Best upgrade per value!

  15. High value product

    By Marc August 30, 2017

    You get a ton our of this brass bushing for cheap. You can definitely feel the difference when driving.

  16. Best bang for your buck!

    By Chrisz July 6, 2017

    Idk what's better how good this feels or the price! Installation was a breeze I think it took me less than 15 minutes! I watched he Subiespeed video for reference and bolt locations which was a big help! You won't regret this! I paired this with the Boomba short throw shifter and it's a world of awesomeness.


    By Joey July 5, 2017

    Great product from Perrin, definitely gave my shifter a more solid feeling shifting through the gears. Would definitely reccomend. INSTALL was about 20-25 minutes, and this was using just a jack and jack stands. Perrin includes a very detailed instruction manual. You can also find subispeed's install video that is very helpful as well. Anyways glad I made this purchase, very good investment.

  18. Super easy

    By Kid May 26, 2017

    You can check out the installation video here on my YouTube channel 'The K&R Collaboration!'

  19. Easy install

    By Brett February 16, 2017

    I installed this on my 2017 WRX and it took maybe 15 minutes to install, the hardest part was getting the stock rubber bushing out. It greatly improves the feel of shifting, no more big *clunk* when aggressively shifting gears! This is the first performance mod I've done to the car and it is very much worth the $25.

  20. Fantastic!

    By Christopher January 11, 2017

    Installed this at the same time with the Perrin Short Shift Adapter. Combined with the Perrin Shift Stop, the sloppy shift feel is improved and running through the gears is that much better. I highly recommend.

  21. Solid shifts

    By Kevin January 1, 2017

    As advertised... well made product with an improved shifting experience. Gone is that rubbery give the oem piece allows and in with a solid shift you can feel instantly. Quick easy install just follow the video. Thanks Subispeed!

  22. Great Improvement

    By Brian August 21, 2015

    This little bushing made a world of difference. Feels much tighter and more firm going in and out of gear. Definitely worth the little bit of time it took to install it.

  23. Stupid easy to install

    By Kyle August 9, 2015

    Put this on my 16 WRX at 500 miles. Personally I didn't notice a difference but I'm assuming that's because of my low milage. Good to know it won't be degrading in the future like others have noted.

  24. Don't think, just buy it!!

    By Matt August 8, 2015

    Best $25 you will EVER spend. There is a night and day difference between the OEM bushing and this one. Shifting no longer feels so rubbery. GREAT product.

  25. Clean and Tight Shifting

    By Jayman July 14, 2015

    No more slop in the gears. Super easy to install. Just follow the video as it takes almost as long to jack up your car as it does to do the install. Each gear is nice and precise. Pair this with the Perrin shift stop and the short throw adapter and you will be very happy!


    By Evan July 9, 2015

    I installed the bushing while I did my first oil change on my 2015 WRX. It is super easy to install, and SubiSpeed's video is spot on in terms of time and how to do the install. I always watch their videos a first time, get all the tools I will need ready, and then watch it again while I do the install. It makes the shifts much more crisp and tight. There is no more flexing of that rubber bushing, and this paired with the Perrin shifter stop makes for an awesome combination!

  27. Stronger material, not much change

    By Tim May 18, 2015

    I ordered this bushing and installed it along with Perrin Shifter Stop. I really like the strength and quality that the brass bushing provides over the OEM bushing. It feels much stronger and more reliable than the rubbery feel of the OEM material. However, I only noticed a slight difference in the shifting action after the install. It feels slightly faster when changing gears, but I wouldn't call the change dramatic. I can't say that I can recommend spending the money on the upgrade, unless you absolutely feel the need to change out the bushing. If you want to upgrade your shifts, I'd say try the Perrin Shift Stop first.

  28. Easy Install!

    By Jose May 11, 2015

    Took about 10 minutes to install! It's a lot more reassuring when you are putting into gear now. No more of that dull rubbery feeling.

  29. Hmmm

    By Wesley April 27, 2015

    I can't really tell a difference, but then again my car had 150 miles on it when i installed this.

  30. Great buy

    By Relik April 24, 2015

    Easy install and what a noticeable difference this makes a cheap must do mod. Smoothe crisp shifts feels great.

  31. 5 star

    By CHAN March 21, 2015

    Installation took 10 minutes, if that. Shifting is so much more crisp. It really feels engaged, unlike before where it had that rubbery feel. With the Perrin shift stop, shifting feel has improved so much.

  32. Crisp shifts into each gear

    By Michael January 25, 2015

    This makes a marked improvement in the shifting from gear to gear. Each shift is crisp and you can feel it engage firmly vs. the soft set into each gear with the stock piece. Great Value.

  33. Improve gear shifting

    By Sam January 20, 2015

    + This little thing improve gear shifting, feels more crisp and accurate (no more rubbery feel). Well worth the hustle of going under the car. 'Do think SAFETY when work under the car'.


    By Jan January 10, 2015

    I installed this bushing, along with the Perrin shifter stop, and Cobb knob almost a month ago. I had some time to drive it around before writing a review and til this day it amazes me how crisp the shifts are. It took a few days to get use to the Cobb knob because it's extremely lighter than the stock knob but I love the smooth finish a lot more. Definitely a solid upgrade and I would recommend it to anyone that is looking for a solid feel.


    By JM November 25, 2014

    Just install this product and men what a difference! for $25 below can't go wrong about this product... take that sloppy feel on the factory bushing...NEXT IS THE PERRIN SHIFTER STOP =) THANKS GUYS!!!

  36. wow! didn't expect this to make such a difference

    By Nick November 23, 2014

    With 8k miles on my WRX, I've become pretty accustomed to how it shifts. This bushing makes shifting significantly smoother, and helps eliminate some of slop that the trans has; everything is crisp and smooth. This is phenomenal when paired with the shifter stop! Wish I had done this sooner.

  37. The shifts feel much better

    By Timothy September 16, 2014

    After driving the first 7500 stock I noticed a dramatic difference. Shifts are cleaner and crisper. I wish I had done this on day 1. If you are reading this you should be buying the bushing. I have almost no experience working on cars and was able to do this very easily.

  38. Makes a noted difference

    By invisusAG August 24, 2014

    Being not so mechanically inclined, this install took maybe 30 min. Working under a car stand instead of a lift made things a little tougher, but not a difficult install. It's a much crisper shift, and compliments the short shifter kit well.

  39. Great product

    By Steve August 1, 2014

    I love the shifter on my new WRX, this makes it better and over time will not get loose and sloppy. The factory bushing is OK with less than 1K miles on the car but will degrade over time. This brass bushing will never degrade :-) Easy install and great bang for the buck...
