My STi has the Subaru short shifter, but not the stiffer rear bushing. The shifter feels good how it is and is one of the reasons I chose the car, but there is some slop. The 2-3 shift is tough when driving fast, and on the track I mis-shifted into 6th (luckily).


Will stiffer bushings alleviate this problem? They aren’t that expensive, so are there any potential drawbacks? If my bushings are stiff for more than 4 hours, will I need to call a doctor?
