Im new to WRX first off. 2002 WRX wagon
My shifter wobbles even when in gear. I was told I needed a new shifter bushing. I get under the car and the bushing is fine. was is loose is that linkage? yok? u-joint. whatever you want to call it right above the support bar that the bushings on are.
I dont think this bushing has anything to do with keeping it sable.
what do I need to order/where can i find it. Having a hard time even finding it online.
I stole this picture from another site. its that linkage right above the bushing and that support arm. that bushing itself was fine. And my layout is a little different then this. I dont have that cable there. nor is that bushing a stand alone in mine. It is attached to the tranny. I assume is a transmission support bar.
mine is doing the same thing. the only thing i can think is that im missing the bushings that are highlighted in the picture in my link. do you have the bushings on your setup. the only other thing i could think to fix it was to put some plastic spacer washers where the shifter connects to the shift rod that comes inside the car
Way back when, I installed the cobb shifter bushing kit which replaces both the bushing pictured and the one above it (at the end of the shift lever) Well worth the money. I believe Kartboy sells a set these days to tighten things up. Easy install, should come with instructions.
